Scam Alert: Postcard Claims You Won Free Airfare
We’re on your side with a scam alert.
Someone is sending postcards in mail promising a free flight getaway.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says it’s bogus.
The postcard features an airline, saying that you’ve been ‘selected’ to receive two round trip airfares and a hotel “for free.”
Some of the cards claim the offer is from American Airlines.
It’s actually from a company that sells very pricey travel club memberships.
Upon calling the toll free number, callers are asked several questions about their income and asked to attend a 90 minute sales presentation.
That’s in order to qualify.
People have lost thousands of dollars in this scam.
