You get a voucher in the mail for two airline tickets -- but do you really get those tickets? Only after going through a high-pressure pitch for an expensive travel club, and only with a lot of requirements for the tickets, David Beasley of BBB serving Dallas and Northeast tells Doug Magditch of CW33-TV Dallas - Fort Worth.

 
You get a voucher in the mail for two airline tickets -- but do you really get those tickets? Only after going through a high-pressure pitch for an expensive travel club, and only with a lot of requirements attached to the offer, David Beasley of BBB serving Dallas and Northeast Texas tells Doug Magditch of CW33-TV Dallas - Fort Worth.

"It’s called the ‘airline ticket scheme.’ It’s one of those ones you just wish was true. Technically, it isn’t a ‘scam’ because it isn’t illegal. Still, it’s a scheme you don’t want to get involved in," says Doug Magditch.

“You’re going to have to jump through a lot of hoops to be able to get that,” said David Beasley. “These companies are very good at knowing what the laws are and then walking a very fine line to what language is legal versus what language is ethical.”

“If you get a notification that you’ve won a contest that you never entered, then you should be very cautious about the offer,” said Beasley.
