Iberia said it was not conducting any raffles. "We remind you that all our raffles, contests and promotions are always published exclusively on http://iberia.com and Iberia's profiles on social media networks," the company said on its official social media accounts.

Iberia also invited users to report any suspicious content they may have detected online.
