It says it is attempting to get the scam offer removed from Facebook and in the meantime is asking people not to be taken in.


 “We have been made aware of a social media scam offering free tickets to Alton Towers Resort that is currently circulating on Facebook.

This is NOT an official offer or affiliated to Alton Towers Resort in any way. Whilst action is taken to remove the scam, we would strongly advise against sharing your details or the post.”
