American Airways Scam For 2 Roundtrip Airline Tickets…Here We Go Again!

by on 18/07/12 at 4:05 pm

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!

NOTE: You must respond no later than July 25th, 2012.

    Ha! Yup, I got one of these today myself! Different phone number: ending in a 9, not an 8.

    In a hand-addressed envelope, with no return address, and no address on the letterhead. Oh, “Meredith” — surely you can use your scamming skills to come up with something far better than this!!

    II received one today myself! Oh we’ve been tiring to contact you several times and this is our last attempt! Why don’t they just say first and last attempt? LOL American Airways? I know of American Airlines come on people wake up it should be obvious this is a SCAM!
    The letter is hand-addressed envelope, with no return address, and no address on the letterhead. What company have you ever received a hand-written envelope from and without their logo and address printed on it? Give me a break……

    I got one today. Do people really think that we’re that stupid, and we’re not going to check them out first on the internet? Yes, my letter is identical to all the others. Tempted to call them…just to see if I can scam them! Oh my, what fun.

    I got the exact same letter today. I smell a skunk right away. I’ve never seen an airline give away anything. So I googled “American Airways +1-866-514-9758″ and this site came up 1st. THANKS, I wasn’t about to respond anyway. My favorites are still the craigslist scammers though

    I got one today, too! (Lucky me…) Everything is EXACTLY the same except for the alpha-numeric code at the bottom. Stupid scammers.

    Got the same letter, same postmark (Phoenix), same date, same phone number except ending in 9, and same VP (M Loya) but with a different style signature. They must have several people filling these form letters out.
