Is Southwest Airlines giving away 400 free tickets?

No. This is just a recurring, recycled scam that cycles around the internet and social media once or twice a year. The scam is to get people to click on links, either to get the scammers revenue from ad clicks or the possibility of infecting the user with adware. Any kind of a promotion of this nature would be widely publicized by the airline themselves on national television.

    My email is when I send something though craiagslist it doesn't work. please help Kenny

    This is not a direct answer to your question but I do want to warn you. 98% of everything on CraigsList is some kind of scam. If it is an apartment they are trying to scam you out of a deposit. If it is a personal ad they are trying to scam you out of your email address. About the only legitimate ads on CraigsList are for free kittens. I have responded to a number of ads in the past and have uncovered the scum of the earth. So unless you want a free kitten I suggest you avoid CraigsList at all costs.
