Consumers allege this company sends a direct mail award notification with a voucher good for two round trip tickets anywhere in the Continental US. The mailer is usually postmarked "Phoenix, Arizona" or "Scottsdale, Arizona" and does not provide a return address. BBB complainants allege the mailer says "This is our last attempt", causing consumers to have a sense of urgency about responding to the offer. Some complaints allege the "voucher" looks like an official check and is usually in the the amount of about $1,200 to $1,400. BBB has confirmed that "US Airlines" or "American Airways" are companies that do not exist. BBB has also confirmed with principals of US Airways and American Airlines (legitimate airlines that have similar names), are not affiliated with this offer or the company sending the offer in any way.
