The fake website shown in their post is, which is not a real website. The ad states that the Minnesota Zoo is celebrating 45 years in business an they are offering tickets for just seven bucks.

The fake ads look pretty legit, with a pretty picture of a tiger at the top, followed by their logo and the option to buy tickets at a very discounted price. Sadly, this is a scam and the promotion is not real. They make it seem legitimate by saying that these discounted tickets are only available to the first 200 people, creating a sense of urgency.

There are a few things that seem off with the fake ad, but not until you look really closely! For example, they state a regular ticket to the zoo costs $87 bucks. Not only that, but they also seem to be missing a zero at the end of this fake ad.
