BBB Warns: Beware of "Free" Flights
January 31, 2013

Consumers across the country are receiving mailings indicating that they have won 2 round-trip tickets from US Airlines. Another similar letter indicates that one can redeem a travel voucher for 2 round-trip, airline tickets. This letter also contains what appears to be a check but says "Must Be Redeemed for travel certificate," near the bottom.

If you are receiving these mailings from US Airlines, be assured that no such company exists (there is a US Airways). These letters are gimmicks. Should you receive one, report it to the Federal Communications Commission for false advertising. Since US Airlines does not exist, it would be nice to know who this company really is, why they are "supposedly" giving out travel vouchers, and what the catch is.
