12/13/10 My husband opened a letter with no return address.Inside was a letter from US Airlines Fly the US Skies stating that he had qualified for an award of 2 round trip airline tickets,up to $1400.oo anywhere in the continental U.S.

That they had tried to contact him several times without success, this was their last attempt. Call 1-866-995-9308. Of Course it was signed by none other than VP Barbara Dion. BT-55797 was at the bottom.

BEWARE!after researching online this is a scam.Please don't fall for this. 2ff84e6

Just got one today! They sure make it look like you could just deposit that check at the bank! Thank you all who have posted here! It is Amazing EVERYONE who gets one doesn't check and see if it is a scam before proceeding! I guess sitting through one timeshare presentation in your life will make you stay away from any free offers of trips or vacations ever...they are worse than car salesmen and you stick with it because you want your "prize", which ma or may not be given out. If it's too good to be true than it IS too good to be true.

This is for a Timeshare presentation. On the back of the check it mentions a "90 minute travel presentation" which will not be anywhere near 90 minutes, they will drive you insane with the hard sell. My guess is they'll force you to stay at one of their properties and charge you for it, which is how they recoup their money and then will take every opportunity to SELL SELL SELL you a timeshare or something else you don't want for an exorbitant amount of money. You probably will get the free flight, after you pay all the taxes and fees, so it'll be slightly cheaper than a flight you could book online, but it won't be a fun trip!

NOTICE it says USA Airlines - there is no such thing! If I were US Airlines I'd be pretty mad at these folks.

OK- Got the same letter, $1199.00...Knowing it is a scam, what is the scam part. Data mining? lecture participation? buy something to validate? Or call # and be charged for phone call?

I received the same, I knew it is a scam right away but I came online to see if any one fell for it, as a result what happened and found this page. I saw many different 800 numbers reported but not the one I had 1-888-736-2567. I hope recycling this envelop will do good to environment :grin

We got ours today--Lucky us...Guess different parts of the country have different numbers to call. Turned it in to Consumer Bob on Channel 7 and am contacting the postmaster general because it is mail fraud. Stopped answering my landline unless it is family as i get at least 5 calls a day on scams--I have inheirted so much money from Nigaria that I should be living the life of luxury instead of working all day.. :(

Mine came today--3/7/13--number to call is 888-737-3489. Do people REALLY fall for a non-negotiable check from a company that does not exist. This is not US Airways--or any other respectable airline--well, maybe no airlines are respectable these days, but this is definitely something bad.
