In April 2011, I shared a scam attempt received from a company claiming to be “US Airlines” for two free round trip airline tickets. You can access that specific post here. I also updated that blog with this new American Airways scam letter information.
That original blog has received 2000+ comments from folks nationwide who received a similar letter. Not one commenter has actually received tickets, instead it appears to be a promotion for new travel agencies attempting to lure people in and sell them vacation packages. You must sit through a presentation (almost like a timeshare) but you do not walk out with free award tickets.
Today, I personally received an updated letter, this time from “American Airways” which is NOT a legitimate airline. The Vice President on mine is Meredith Loya.
I have received personal threats from those involved in this scam, which is why I am broadcasting their updated scamming attempt again. I am amazed they’d send this to me again considering I have already exposed them! Hopefully, I can save thousands more from falling for this and wasting time!
