US Airlines Scam: Roundtrip Tickets, Travel Anywhere in the Continental U.S.

Updated on March 19, 2011

US Airlines Roundtrip Airline Ticket Scam

Did you receive a letter from US Airlines Vice President Jocelyn Hall saying "you have qualified for an award of 2 roundtrip airline tickets"...for "travel anywhere in the Continental U.S."? Don't bother dialing 1-866-341-6498 or any other number listed at the bottom of the email. This direct mail piece from US Airlines is a scam. Here's why:

1.) US Airlines does not exist. Don't confuse it with US Airways or United Airlines.

2.) There is no return address on the envelope and the to address was handwritten in pen. Additionally, the letter was mailed with a stamp though most major businesses have metered mail.

3.) There are no footnotes or small print about the contest details included.

4.) The letter from US Airlines hasn't been proofread by a copy editor; letters like this from major companies are usually reviewed by professionals. Just a couple of mistakes include "2 roundtrip tickets," which should be "two roundtrip tickets" and "Continental U.S.," which should be "continental U.S."

5.) Don't remember entering a contest? Well, you probably didn't. The letter from "US Airlines" doesn't indicate why or how you won.

If you do dial the number listed for Jocelyn Hall of the fake US Airlines, not only will you be giving your number away, but you could be at risk of giving up additional information about yourself. Don't fall for direct mail scams like these.

      Great hub! Also, you can actually fill out an online form at the postal service to file a mail fraud complaint (at https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraud... ). If you do so, I'd suggest giving as much info as possible (like the zipcode it was mailed from on the envelope they sent to you).

      I too have received a similar letter today 03/24/2011 i am a retired USAirways employee and can tell you that USAirways is in no way associated with this so called company. i did take your excellent advice and did file a complaint with the US Postal Service today.I currently have a callk in to the Vice president of US Airways to get her thoughts on this matter. This is definitely a scam. Unfortunately I won't be calling Jocelyn as i hope no one will.

      I received the letter in the mail also. I dialed the number which was an 866 number and then quickly hung up as I was receiving another call. Guess what, the person on the 866 number started calling me back. It was then I realized something is not right at all. An airline would not call me back.

      Kristina Bar must have tired fingers. Got her 'personal' letter dated Jan 23, 2012 and it is just like others listed here.

      Feb 1 is response date. I'll let that pass. BTW, anybody with a pay phone near by and a few minutes could call this number (866 509 1038) and not worry about getting calls back!

      I am sure this is the same scam. It looks like they may be correcting some of their mistakes. It looks like an official "check" in the amount of $1400.00 signed by Jessica (could be Trish, or Lish) Toll free number is 866-298-9802. US Airlines - Phoenix. AZ. Appears as the same only different.

      Ditto, here in Charleston, SC. Brittany Hunt @ 866-475-7634. What happens if I call? With these phone numbers, you'd think they could be tracked down and stopped... How long does the nonsense have to continue before the police put a stop to it? I'm sure quite a few folks have been taken advantage of. You know what they say- "there's one born every minute..."

      My letter was different. No name was used, instead it was "Awards Department". This letter was convincing, but too good to be true. It was prepaid postage; no stamps. One of those rip the sides off letters. I do enter contests, so I figured this was a result. Phone # was 866-503-2025. Postage was from Oklahoma City, Ok.

With the 866-463-0610 number and I'm also in Austin metro area so looks like they are just going door to door basically on the mailings.

      Received a letter with the letter head of US Airlines stating that I had been chosen for two round trip airline tickets to anywhere in the continental US. When I called the number, the lady said that they were working with a local travel agent and that I would have to go to the agent to pick up the tickets. She ran through some questions and when I didn't meet the quilifers she told me I could still get the tickets if I referred 2 of my friends. Yea right I am going to do that. SCAM!!! DO NOT CALL or waste your time.

      Our letter was from "Kelly Mane," dated 2/13/2012, hand-addressed in ink with what looks like a girl's handwriting, postmarked 2/14/2012 in Phoenix with a full 45¢ postage. Number to call was 866-444-5424. It looks like the two letter code at the bottom might be a batch number (identifying the sucker who's paying full rates to mail this garbage) followed by a serial number identifying the recipient on the mailing list. Our letter was FP-22319.

      This scam looks like it has two potential victims per mailing: the fool who's paying full First Class rates to mail every single letter (probably lured in by some kind of work-at-home scam addressing envelopes such as these), and any doofus who calls the number and ends up at a time-share sales pitch.

I knew that it wasn't real since it didn't say "US Airways" and had such an unofficial letterhead and as others have said, very poorly written. Can't believe this has been going on so long.

      I called the number just for fun. As I thought they want me and my wife to attend a 1.5 hour presentation from a travel agency before they will give us the $1400 ticket voucher. I did not give them any info and they said no money would exchange hands until we decided to use the ticket voucher and then we must pay the taxes on the value.The only thing that they require is that you bring a photo ID and a credit card, they said you could cover up the credit card number, it was just to verify you had one. I set an appointment with them as I do with all of these type offers,and then we just don't show up. If everyone would do that they would have to stop doing this out of simple economics.(printing,postage,call center, empty rented presentation rooms with presenters waiting on no shows.$$$$$

      Received this yesterday, with 'must respond date of 02.22.2012'. Seems as though the TFN has changed. Mine was 866.444.5424.

      I called quick, then told them I didn't have time to talk as I was at work. They said that they would call me back, so I gave them the main number to the Chicago Police Department.

      Suggestion to everyone... If you get this scam, call them and do something similar, look up and give them the "Non-Emergency" phone number for your local Police department. Either it will stop, quickly, or the Police will start tracing the calls back to the various Toll Free Numbers.

They asked 3 questions. 1) if I was between the ages 25 and 67 2) If I was married 3) if the household income was above or below $45K. They then proceeded to set up an apppointment and asked for my email address and convienient phone #, which I happily gave them the hotmail account I use for junk and potential spam emails and the # to the Pizza Place down the street from the building I am supposed to show up at. They told me I had to show up to some tour with my wife and to bring an ID and Credit card for proof of identification. Definitely a SCAM.

I called and spoke with "Alan" -- I need to go to a travel agency presentation in Gurnee (Illinois) to receive my 2 free tickets (all I am responsible for is fees and taxes). Alan and I argued a bit; then he told me he was right because he recorded the call. I demanded to speak to his "supervisor", where I complained that I was being recorded without notice or my permission, which is eavesdropping in Illinois. He said it is, because -- get this -- I called their number, so they can record without notice and it is not eavesdropping! Garanteed, this is a scam. I did a Google search for "travel agency scam US Airlines" and found all of you folks. My wife said she feels sorry for the poor saps that do all of that work for the scammer. I feel sorry for all of the unwitting folks who give up time, and probably $$ to these crooks.

      Got mine in Spartanburg SC. Called Mary Jay at 866-826-7464. I told her that I did not own a credit card nor was I gainfully employed but that I REALLY wanted to have phone sex with her. She began to go into how I could still get the tickets blah blah blah, so I began to moan loudly and ask what color her underwear was. She hung up.

      Anderson, IN 5 years ago

      I received a letter today (March 24, 2012) in Anderson, Indiana. Mary Jay 866-826-6873 has given me a response deadline of March 28. Claims they've attempted contact several times. Code at the bottom of the letter claiming I have won "2 roundtrip tickets" is GC-17592.

      The envelope was hand written with no return address and includes a $.45 postage stamp with a meter stamp of Phoenix, AZ 850 7. Funny how the fourth digit is completely blank. AZ has several zips this could have come from.

      I have already filed my complaint with the US Postal Inspector using this link https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraud...

      Received mine just recently; bulk mailing permit, so no postmarks.

      It's a tear-and-unfold affair, much like an official reimbursement or payroll check. The indicators on the paper are surprisingly authentic, but there's a number of bulk-mail printers that will let you use this stock for almost any purpose. It even appears to have real MICR print at the bottom, like an actual financial document. The security features of the document, while authentic, are a moot point since the originator (presumably) has no intention of honoring the printed dollar amount.

      On an interesting legal note; while the "Pay to the order of:" line has my name, it's described as "on behalf of" me. The principal payee is the fictional US Airlines. IANAL, but shouldn't that count as wire fraud?

      Details of my "offer" as printed:

      - value is "$ 1,400.00" with the word "DOLLARS" printed out

      - Voucher # is GB-10895, which is probably unique due to the nature of the bulk printing process.

      - The attached letter, "Award Notification" is serialized with "Nº: 1008" in the top-right corner.

      - The number to call is 1-866-861-0470, but it is well known that companies can lease large blocks of 800-numbers for any purpose. The up-front cost to set-up these numbers is usually low, since overall cost is based on the amount of calls received.

      - Voucher claims it was printed March 15, 2012

      - The "Authorized Signature" is readable as "Jessica Wren" but is clearly typewritten, probably from a name generator printed in a handwriting font. (repeating letters look identical and the cursive ligatures do not match from one letter to another; no hand wrote this)

      - Like authentic checks, the drawing institution is identified along with a realistic Federal EIN number. After some research, the number (20-365272/66769) appears to be issued for an "internet" business entity; that means it's not attached to any particular state. The other details are "Travel Union" (no such bank that I could find) allegedly in Phoenix, AZ. (zip: 85006) On bona-fide financial documents this information identifies the party responsible for honoring the payment of the check.

      - On the face, since it uses a bulk mailing permit, the permit number shown is 1484. The USPS can use that to identify the people who paid for this mailing.

      I am going to look into submitting this to my local Postmaster General as state's evidence.

      Look closer at the "handwritten" address on the envelope and you will see it is merely a FONT printed on the envelope. There aren't any pressure marks or indentions to the paper. These are dead-giveaways to handwritten vs. printed. They are clever to leave the return address off. However, lodge a complaint with the Postmaster and note the barcode at the bottom on both front and back of the envelope. This is a direct read back to the point of origin.

      I'm in North Carolina - Mary Jay is the VP of choice today - 866-826-7464. I also found a couple of sites, USAirlinesLetter.com explains it is type of travel agency and they deal with unsold seats from various airlines in the US, including supposedly TWA, Southwest, Northwest, Delta and Alaska. It was copyright 2011; however, TWA sold to American in about 2001. If they are such a big company, why the cheap letters with no logo, address, etc. Doesn't sound legit to me.

      I told them US Airlines was not an airline company. She said, "Oh you can use it with any US airline. All you have to do is pay the taxes on the ticket.

      I said, "well when I google this, it says you are a scam."

      She said, " oh no, I can assure you this is not a scam! Are you married?"

      I said, "I'm not interested." and hung up the phone.

They will not give you a number to contact to UNSUBSBRIBE! I finally got a number and got a person - call 866 299 1009 to get rid of them.

      What was scary is I didn't tell them my name or my address. Tney knew my phone number already and associated it with me. So hide your number before you call.

      I just called after getting Debra Hall's letter and was pressured into making an appointment for tomorrow for 2 airline tickets. When I told her Broomfield is a bit out of my way, she without hesitating offered me a hotel for 3 nights for the inconvenience. I hung up feeling suspicious so I googled their phone # and this site came up. Feeling a bit violated, I called them again to get the website address of where they were sending me and my wife. Turns out to look legitimate: www.airfareanddeals.com

      My wife and I have done time share sales pitches before. This letter, while posing as a bunch of bull, might a actually turn out to be somewhat legitimate. I will go see for myself and let you know.

      I have dealt with the likes of these people before. Yes it is a legit travel club. These clubs are not scams, however buyer beware, you can often get the same travel deals and discounts buying yourself and to hand over a large payment every month seems absurd. These folks prey on the elderly and unknowledgeable. I went to one two years ago (different company - or could be the same - these folks change their name like underwear) just to scope them out and call them out on it, very sad - young military couples and elderly attended, I called them out on a number of things and they ushered me out - they are planning some at the Hampton Inn probably in the last week or this week, I am about to call the Hampton Inn that they may not want to be in cohoots with them and call my media buddies to try to get them out of town.

      I feel ripped off - all I got was the rippable envelope containing a "check". No. 1008, GM-78828, "signed" Carin Kane. (There was no attempt to make it look like an actual signature, it was just a script font.) US Airlines at 866-353-3463. 93-643307/71492. No letter. (Or I had just tossed them in the shred bin unopened.)

      The OCR numbers at the bottom might look like bank routing numbers but they're bogus (duh) - the symbols around the routing number are wrong and it's not 9 digits.

      The "I'm totally not a lawyer" in me laughs at the check though. Something I remember from ugrad business law is that pretty much everything you think you know is wrong. Banks don't have to refuse post-dated checks and the date is used solely to identify 'stale' checks. You can't put restrictions on the use of the money in the memo line since it's outside of the contract with the bank. You don't need to sign the check legibly, hell you don't even need to sign the check if the payee can infer intent via, oh, sending the company a check together with the payment slip. On and on and on....

      My point is that somebody with legal knowledge must have tried to cash an earlier "check", probably with success once the company realized it would be far cheaper to settle than fight it in court and possibly establish precedence that all of those bogus checks were, in fact, cashable. So now it's a check to themselves "on behalf of" you since that keeps you from cashing it.

It was from Debra Hall, V.P. with the telephone number of 1-866-796-5725, and the code at the bottom was GG-78081. My name was hand-written on the envelope with no return address and was postmarked April 6,2012 in Phoenix, Az. I live in Rhode Island.

      Same song and dance.

      •Nonexistent airline

      •Poor letterhead unbecoming of an airline

      •Contest I never entered, qualified how exactly

      •Have attempted to contact you many times

      •If they tell you the retail worth in dollars• then it probably isn't worth a nickle

      •Poorly written letter, unprofessional

      Perhaps they are scamming people out of money so they can afford to take a remedial English course.

      Add Indianapolis to the list. Strange coinsidence for me since not 20 min. before my husband brought in the mail, I was reading an article on what debt collectors we're not allowed to do. I told my husband for once I'd like it to be a debt collector, but seeing as we pay our bills, lol, thought it would be a good idea to Google it. How disappointing that these people haven't been stopped. I feel sick to my stomach knowing that there are poor souls out there who have fallen victim to these retched people. Since the postal service and AG haven't been able to stop these crooks I am speaking with an attorney on Thurs. If debt collectors are not allowed to lie or use made up company names, how are these people?

      Yes, I just got one in what appeared to be handwritten envelope. No return address, no address on the letterhead but the logo for travel deals with the smaller text "powered by Expedia Affiliate Network."

      The handwritten envelope is a clever touch but on closer inspection it does look a bit fake. What really gets me is the lameness of the overall package. I mean, seriously, no return address on the envelope or letterhead?

      I would like to (metaphorically) drag these people through broken glass and then through a pool of iodine.... I say this because I hate the thought of them taking advantage of some senior citizen or eternal optimist.

      I opened my letter today, it was dated May 26th,2012, from Phoenix AZ. I actually called the number -1-866-841-1989, but first dialed *67 before the number. The man that answered was very unprofessional.When I asked him where he got my info, he stated that it was from a previous travel. Now I have'nt traveled by plane for almost 20yrs. Most of my travel have been by car. He wanted to argue with me and asked me if I was sure. Of course I informed him that I know someone that works @ the airline , I will have this investigated . He still continued to argue & I hung up. The travel value was $1,298.00. The letter was signed by Denise Cale. Code #HJ95782. The letter also states that they have made attempt to contact me several times without success.( this happens to be their first contact.) Good luck & be careful to whom ever receives this.

      Received a handwritten envelope with no return address on it. Sent from Phoenix, AZ. Signed by Kerry Dyer, a very busy VP. Her number is 1-866-675-8061. The claim number is JJ-65289. I called the number, spoke to Amanda, probably not her real name. I called her out on the scam at hand. She's adamant that it's not a scam. She thinks I have US Airlines confused with US Airways or some other signatory airline. After going back and forth for several minutes I could sense that her faltering voice got the better of her although she tried to make me believe her spiel. Hopefully, when I disconnected the call, I ruined her day.

But I see that it has been going on for a long time. Don't send these people any money. I don't know who sold my name and address to these people - I hope I can find that out so I can take some action with that information.

      Got ours today with an expiration date of August 21, value $1,400-, signed by Linda Rey. Got on the phone while I googled it and got Britney who said all we had to do was to go pick up our airfare tickets to a travel agency 5 miles from our house, I even questioned the fact that it is ALL OVER the internet as being a scam and she said to prove they are not they DO NOT ask for any money up front. I wonder if anyone has gone any further to confirm it's a scam...I GUESS WE'LL NEVER KNOW!

      Today, I qualified for an award of 2 roundtrip airlines tix from US Airlines today! Retailing at $1298, certain restrictions apply though :(

      They must have used my old number when trying to contact me several times with no success.

      My husband received one today too. They fixed some of their grammatical errors. There is still the number 2 instead of being written out but his came with Dorothy Joy's signature. He doesn't fly nor does he enter any contests.

      Yep....I got one too. D.Joy signed my check :-) for 1398.00. Funny thing is, though, that the routing number on my check only has 6 digits....all banks use 9 digit routing numbers....just sayin.

      They are atill at it. Envelope had "FINAL NOTICE".with a presorted stamp and it was one of those computer generated where you have to tear off the end tabs, and top to get to the inside. Just some more shredder fodder.

      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 crap 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!!!

      I got my letter like everyone else but I didn't check it out first. I had some time to kill and I was curious. I went down to my appointment. I was there an hour and a half and it's a low pressure sales environment, so it wasn't that bad. If this is a scam i'm still fooled. Yes I did get vouchers for two airline tickets.

      This is now being sent in the form of a check - but no routing numbers, so it's obviously not real. Thanks for posting this - if it seems too good to be true, it usually is.
