In today’s mail, I got a hand written envelope from Phoenix, Arizona. Wasn’t quite sure what to think about it, but I opened it anyway. It ended up being a letter from US Airlines Vice President Nicole Clay. She was writing to let me know they’ve tried several times to get in touch with me to let me know I was eligible for two roundtrip airline tickets. All I had to do was call a fancy toll-free number and away I go. Well, I was always brought up to believe that if something is too good to be true, it probably isn’t. So, after a quick google search, sure enough, this is a credit card scam. It also looks to represent itself in different ones with different names. Sometimes it’s a letter, sometimes it’s a travel voucher…just know all times it’s a scam.
If you’ve received something similar from US Airlines, please let us know about it in the comments below. I want to make sure this gets spread around as much as possible. These types of scams really piss me off sometimes. Hell, I’ve never even heard of US Airlines. Oh well.
I’m also showing an example of the letter I got (sorry for the bad quality, but you get the idea, right?). Stay safe folks.
