US AIRLINES-AWARD NOTIFICATION-CHECK SCAM

Us Airways - US AIRLINES-AWARD NOTIFICATION-CHECK SCAM
Us Airways - US AIRLINES-AWARD NOTIFICATION-CHECK SCAM
Us Airways - US AIRLINES-AWARD NOTIFICATION-CHECK SCAM
I received one of these "Award Notifications" from "US Airlines" the other day in the amount of $1350.00 for 2 round trip tickets to anywhere in the US. Mine came as a 3 sided tear off envelope, the kind you receive checks in. It had BLUE blotted background and looks very real. This appears to be a check, with even an endorsement area on the back. It has everything on it that would convince anyone it is a legitimate check, numbers on the bottom(routing number, account, and check number), has "Travel Union" with an address (Scottsdale, AZ 85251) as the bank with a number below it, and dated, with amount and written amount, and then a phone number 1-80*-476-****, and signed by Charlette Koehn. This is a very convincing scam, and I almost called, but was still suspicious because it says in the letter "FINAL NOTICE", and "We have attempted to contact you on several occasions. This will be your last chance to respond.", which are absolute LIES. This is NOT even an airline AT ALL! US AIRWAYS should SUE this company for using leaching their name. It's time these scammers get thrown in jail. If I won something without entering any contest, the alone should be criminal by misleading people. I scanned the whole thing for people to see what the scam looks like, but don't have a way to post it here? It would be nice to show people what these scams look like, so they don't fall for it.

This is as old as 'Moses'. It's not a scam it's a marketing practice. Do your research.

Whether people here like it or not... it's a scam and constitutes fraud.

Most marketing schemes are fraud, but in today's day and age not a single person really gives a *** nor fights against fraud because it's too *** time consuming and rampant. The state will likely go after fraudsters that either make a BIG scene, or make too much money...

it's only then the state will get involved with fraudulent tactics.

Blocked # calls me every couple of months telling me that there is an outstanding invoice for advertising with there company and how would i be able to pay today bank wire or credit card. I laughed at them cursed they guy out and told him usually if you owe money for that long its forwarded to a creditor so i asked the guy who was the collection agency handling this bill on behalf of there company he said no one they are collecting the debt .

He was insisting that i give me him my credit card number. I asked for his tax i d number to verify the existence of their company then he hung up on me.

Alot of scammers these days watch out people . Some people in this country dont make an honest day living

instead the leech on innocent people robbing them .

I received a letter stating that I was awarded a 2-round trip airline tickets worth $1,375.00. The letter has my maiden name on it, which I had changed nearly 14 years ago, so that was my first red flag.

Then, the letter gives you a deadline date of October 16, 2014.

It reads:

Dear Michelle,

I am pleased to inform you that you have qualified for an award of 2-round trip airline tickets. Congratulations! These tickets are valid for travel anywhere in the continental U.S.

from any major international airport. The retail value of this award is up to $1,375.00. Certain restrictions apply.

We have attempted contacting you several times (no they haven't 2nd red flag) without success.

This is our final attempt. If we do not hear from you soon, we may need to issue the ticket vouchers to the alternate.

Please call me today at 1-87*-***-****. Regards, Angela Berry Customer Realations Manager The US Airlines logo at the top of the letter wasn't even in color, its obvious it was a mass copy.

Total scam, DO NOT fall for this and continue to report these idiots.

#884727

What a bunch of losers these people are. I received offer today 10-14-14 from Joanne foster.

$1375 "valid for travel anywhere in the continental US from any major international airport".

All the usual telltale scam signs: final offer, we've contacted you several time, etc. since I'm not calling they can feel free to "issue the ticket vouchers to the alternate".

#874424

LOL US AIRLINES !!! Really ?!?!?!

I received my scam check/voucher today. Can't hardly wait to give my account number to Joanne Fosta. I guess Kourtney had to change her name. LOL.

Don't be a fool.... stay in school..... being able to READ is important. Though common sense would alert you that NOTHING is FREE.

NOTHING !!

I'm sure they will ask for an account number to process some sort of so called tax or filing fee. Then wham!!

Horrible Gate Agent - Nydia Employee # 203473

Dear US Airways: While trying to make an international flight from PHX - CDG my wife was denied travel because of checking in 59 minutes prior to departure with checked baggage. The manager, Nydia, refused to check baggage and removed my wife from her flight thereby making it impossible to make her connection to Paris. Nydia stated that policy was 1hr before flights, and since we were 1 minute late, it was 'policy' not to check my wife's baggage. In the view of everyone at the check-in line, Nydia was unprofessional, contemptuous, and entirely disrespectful. Nydia's employee # is 203473 - she works at the check-in gate at Phoenix-Sky Harbor Airport. This employee should be reprimanded for her actions and the damages she caused US Airways. I will never fly this airline again.

You were late. What did you expect?

That you were so special that the airlines would change the rules for you. On many airlines the computers lock out at one hour so the agent cannot add your wife to the flight. Grow up, take responsibility for your actions, and don't call people who are merely doing their jobs, bad names when you are the one at fault.

She would probably say you and your wife were irresponsible, over-demanding, childish, self-centered and similar comments. Those would be closer to the truth, than your comments about her.

US Airways NEVER Again

Our flight was delayed out of Seattle for 3 hours due to US Airways mechanical difficulties. The flight itself, when it finally took off is 5 hours long. We missed connecting flight & missed the next connecting flight & forced to sit in Philadelphia airport with children for 5 hrs before the next flight. That's 13 hours and that was just the first leg of our trip. Was told they don't offer meal vouchers for flights that don't offer meals on them but we had to sit around for 8 hours with small children just on the first leg solely due to US Airways mechanical difficulties. US Airways behavior is rude and unprofessional. Had we arrived when we were scheduled to arrive we would have been at my parents in Albany just in time for breakfast and NOT have had to purchase food at the airport waiting 5 hours for a connecting flight due to no fault of our own. Even Southwest Airlines is better than this.

Resolved: Cold Hearted US Airways/ American

My grandfather passed away and I canceled my upcoming trip to Hawaii. After speaking with my family and Fiance they said to go ahead and go as it is much needed. My grandpa and I were very close and I know he had been sick for a while but it really devestated me. When I called to rebook the similar flight which ended costing less. I had a $2,150 credit and ended only using $1,600 and instead of them using that to pay for my $400 changing fee they asked they i paid out of pocket. I understand the policy...but when i asked them to please waive my fee and still pay for my fiances, Amanda at American, just said no and show NO compassion that my grandpa had passed. With so many airlines out there I dont have to fly with American and I dont think anyone should. I understand, business is business but I will not fly with such a cold hearted airline ever again. very disapointed.

This is business, not a charity. You agreed to pay the change fees when you bought the tickets.

Now you complain when you are held to the contract terms you agreed to. No airlines takes vouchers for the change fee. The change fee is totally separate from the ticket. You are paying for them to change the ticket.

That requires the payment of cash.

Look at it this way. You still have $550.00 worth of credit to take another trip.

Us Airways Domestic Flight Review from Naperville, Illinois

What a joke. I had a conceding flight in Philadelphia. I received a VM wile I was in mid flight saying that my conceding fight was canceled. Phone customer care was a 2hr hold. Got to the customer care in the airport waited an hr for the woman to be useless. Her exact words were I can't help you. I asked if any flights going to near citys. She looked at me and flat out said to me Sir I told you I can't help you you are going to have to stay here until tomarow night. I ended up booking a flight with United and flew home that way. What a unprofessional joke. There mistake cost them a customer and cost me 600 to get home.

Us Airways International Flight Review from Paris, Ile-De-France

My flight to paris was cancelled because their plane broke so they put me on United. Needless to say they lost my luggage which they tell me is here in Paris but it's been 7 days and no one can locate it!! They lied and told me the transferred it to United the day it arrived but United doesn't have it!! They are so rude and unprofessional as well in Paris at Charles de Gaulle, they refuse to answer the phone now when I call...I just want my luggage!

Us Airways Flight Review from Chandler, Arizona

We have sAt on the ground for 1.5 hours so far. When we were boarded the crew knew we had estimated departure time of 6:45, reported based on construction delays at lax. 806 now and counting. Told we will depart now in 10 minutes. Terrible. Really bad idea to board us. Never fly us airways by choice. Suckered in Phoenix.

Lax is always crazy...with all airlines.they want to have the airplanes boarded and ready to go so when air traffic control clears that flight for departure they are ready to go.the time they gave ypu was an estimate it could go before or take longer.lax is one of the buisiest airports in the world.no matter what airline,even no construction and clear weather you should always be prepared for delays,waiting on tarmac to takeoff or circling waiting to land.Its the airport not the airline.we fly there 4 -5 times a week and always have to add tons of holding fuel.always an issue.

Ruined Luggage

On the first leg of my trip, the baggage handlers caused a bottle in my suitcase to crack, which spilled liquid on my clothing. Then coming back, a wheel was ripped off my suitcase. All I got from customer service was some song-and-dance about them not being liable for such damage. My luggage is less than 2 years old. It has been overseas with Delta and was not damaged. I cannot afford new luggage every time I fly. I am terribly disappointed in their cavalier attitude about my luggage. US Airways has terrible service and I will not use them again unless I have to.

No airline will cover damage to wheels,handles,straps ect because they can get damaged in the hold.also if you packed a glass bottle in your carry on luggage and it broke its your fault.That is not packed properly or in the right container.you risked damaging 100s of others bags because you did not pack properly.

Us Airways Baggage Policies Review from Sacramento, California

It wasn't enough that my flight was delayed but their crew also ruined my luggage. They responded to my email saying that they aren't liable for any damages caused to my luggage as I was supposed to report it in person when I arrived. Hello! It's 11pm and you've been on a plane all day so ofcourse you just want to get the heck out of there. I paid a lot for my plane ticket, I respected all their plane crafts I got into, and cleaned after myself. They just couldn't simply train their crew to respect customer belongings and then turn around and say they aren't liable for any damages.

Most airlines have a time limit to report damage.you agreed to that,you didnt follow through.no one to blame but yourself.airlines need to see damage when you arrive,so then they know the damage happened while the bag is in their custody.

Stuck in Jamaica

booked flights four months ago, going was fine. Coming home was awful. They changed our flight in Jamaica. They gave us no choice other then to stay there. So we wanted to get back to the U.S. So we had no choice. Took the flight back and now we have 5/12 hour wait to get home. No other choice. Not a sorry not a another airline was offered, nothing. So here we sit. Waiting because usairways can't get there stuff right. Not our fault. Never again. I sent a complaint in to there office and haven't heard a single word from them. They gave one thing to us . I am disabled person and can't sit, stand or walk for long and here I am with a soar ness and my husband so pissed. It was stay in Jamaica and spend more money or take what we have!!

US AIRWAYS...NOT ALLOWED TO BOARD CONNECTING FLIGHT

We were 4 passengers traveling from Memphis to Madrid,Spain with connecting flight at Charlotte on June 21,2015.The flight from Memphis US 5329 was delayed by an hour .The ground staff , Ms Shuang Yu was extremely helpful and went out of the way to make sure that we and everybody in the waiting area were informed constantly about when the flight would ***.She gave us seats in the front of the plane and put a priority tag on our luggage so it would be unloaded quickly and transferred to the next flight.She turned the flight around to Charlotte in the quickest time possible by getting the passengers quickly in the aircraft for Charlotte.We reached Charlotte at 830 pm and quickly started running to catch the flight to Madrid.Gate D11 was quite a distance off but two of us got there and begged the lady at the gate to allow two of the other passengers in our party who were just two to three minutes away to get into the plane with us.One of the ladies was my wife's 70 year old aunt who was coming in the airport cart.My wife reached a few minutes later but we were still waiting for her aunt to arrive.The gate attendant ,a blonde Spanish lady was extremely rude and started screaming to another lady that she could not wait and gave me and my wife an ultimatum that if we did not get in the aircraft she would lock the gate.We both got in ,but my wife's aunt's son in law decided to wait for her.When I entered the plane we requested the air purser, a really nice Spanish gentleman that we were waiting for my Wife's aunt to arrive and to wait.He said that should not be a problem.Within a few minutes my wife's aunt and her son in law were at the gate but the Gate attendant would not allow them to get in,saying that their luggage had not been transferred this flight.She came into the aircraft and told me that she could allow only the two of us to board the flight and not the other two.I begged her that we were starting a tour in Madrid the very next day and our plans would be disrupted but she kept telling us,that it does not work this way as she did not believe our baggages were transferred.I told her that our baggages had priority tags but she told me in the plane in front of the Spanish air purser,Mr Lucas to 'Shut UP'.The plane took off without our two fellow passengers who were then shunted to another British Airways flight.When we reached Madrid ,all our baggages were at the baggage claim.Our two fellow passengers arrived at 7 pm next day believing the luggage was in their plane while it had come with us.US Airways had no idea where the luggage was .THIS WAS UNNECESSARY HARRASSMENT BY US AIRWAYS,SPECIALLY BY THIS BLONDE SLIM SPANISH LADY AT GATE D11 ON 22JUNE 2015.Instead of helping us we were inconvinienced by her where she did not allow 2 of us to board while others who were late from other flights were allowed to board while she was spending time trying to be difficult .She was very egoistic and possibly parochial with us as she let other Caucasian passengers to get in and kept us outside .
