Monetary Loss

Urgent official document received in mail - marked "personal and confidential" - stated we won two free tickets on US Airlines with value of $1400.00 and this was Final Notification.Incorrect use of english language in document itself i.e.

" We have been asked with notifying you of this award" instead of "We have been asked to notify you of this award." Another example, "it will be transferred to the alternate." Wonder who is the "alternate"? Must respond immediately or forfeit price. Recorded on record as of 3/10/11.

Signed "awards department" call 1-866-348-0834.Postmarked Oklahoma City, OK. 300f4ca

I'm disappointed. I didn't get a check, and the retail value on mine is only $1,299.00 and "certain restrictions apply."

Has anyone noticed that all the vice presidents of this sham company are female?

It says right on the back of the check that "This is not a check".

"Final Notice" with no return address . Award check ($1,198)has Travel Union, Scottsdale AZ as the issuer. I've seen this before, there is no US Airlines only US AirWAYS. Not really signed by Juliann Rogers. 1-866-247-9193. "Limited time" etc etc, like most of the other loggers, the language is correct now though.
When I called I was on hold for a long time, and then told that bot my wife & I need to attend an "Introduction" to a "new" travel agency about 30 miles away within the next 2 weeks. Said we couldn't make it, so was told to call back in two weeks to see what times were avialable. Skeptical but will follow up at that time.

Hi all, glad I ckd the net first on this. Looks like this scam making it's way to East coast now. Though I seem to recall my parents getting one of these before and cking the net then, prob over year ago....? So unfortunate we have so many scams going on out there that I forgot about it! Thanks good folks for keeping watch and reporting :)

I got my letter about a month ago from Monica Hunt to call 866-746-4358.... For fun I called and spoke with Josh. He told me I would need to go to the travel agency in person to pick up the tickets. I booked an appointment and went down there. They introduced themselves and told me about their services and then gave me my vouchers. I had to show my ID and a credit card for identification purposes only. Josh told me I could cover up the numbers all they needed to see was the name so I did. All they did was glance at the name to make sure it matched my ID and then gave me the vouchers.

As soon as I got home I called and made a reservation for the tickets. Departing out of Houston to Vegas in two months. I had to pay $39.24 in Tax and $4.95 for a "processing fee". Today I was shocked that I actually got my airline tickets via FedEx!!!!!! I called up American to verify they were legit and they confirmed!!!! I suggest to anyone who gets the letter to go down, listen to their *** for a few minutes, grab your vouchers and get out of there. You dont provided any financial info until you make your reservation. Its a pretty sweet deal if you have the time to get down there! OMG YAY VEGASSSS!!!

After receiving one of these offers, I did some web sleuthing. Believe it or not, US Airlines has a web presence -- several presences, in fact, including one at goarticles.com, a page that claims to offer "content articles." Well, here is an excerpt from US Airline's content article. I dare you not to giggle:

"Whilst numerous promotional delivers obtained via the mail could be of hugely dubious nature, the US airlines offer you is reputable. If you get these kinds of a letter, be sure to speak to US Airlines by way of indicates besides the data on the letter by itself to verify that it's certainly legit and actual."

Uh-huh. By way of indicates the English in the article that the US airlines offer me is not reputable. Or actual.

I am in Boise, Idaho and received the same mail notification for free airline tickets on 10-18-12. Had to attend an hour long vacation sales pitch with my wife. Boring and did not buy anything. We did get the tickets so its a marketing ploy not a scam. Worth it if you have the time.

About 10 minutes ago I thought I'd play their silly game and give them a call. I'm still on hold waiting for the next available representative. Now I just got a recording saying that extension 0110 is not available, please lease a message. I left my work phone and will see how long it takes to get a callback.

Looks like they are making their rounds in Austin, Texas this week. Yep...the same bloody message $1400 for two round trip tickets anywhere in the continental US, and must be redeemed by 10/23/12 otherwise it goes to the alternate. Is there actually no recourse for scams like this??

Just got the same thing today, Oct 10, 2012 in Austin, TX. $1400 Award Notification for 2 tickets on US Airlines. Had the same improper grammar as others have mentioned. I always check the internet first to see if it's a scam. It always is. Looks like it's been going on for quite some time. Don't waste your time. They can go ahead and transfer it to the "alternate." Thanks everyone for the heads-up.
