I received the same letter today from Dana Kline indicating I had been awarded 2 roundtrip tickets from US Airlines valued at $1,398.00, indicating the reason for the letter was they were unable to contact me by phone. I immediately checked the internet and found your site. I knew the situation was suspect as soon as I read the letter.
Letter with US AIRLINES up top, You won 2 tickets...blah..blah ...blah...$1398 in value....blah...blah...if you read on the back it states NOT AFFILIATED WITH US AIRLINES...they don't exist actually...

...probably time share and no free nothing ever.
Called the number back after turning off caller ID on my iPhone (just in case) voice response identified the company as, "Vacation Tours", and excepts voicemail. Sounds like a scam to get you to buy vacation packages.... They try to lure you in with free stuff. Not unlike the time sharing scams of the 1980's.
NOTHING IS FREE....
i got the same letter about free airline tickets on 4-3-2013 saying they have tryed to get ahold of me several times and if i dont call them at 1-855-879-8217 by 4-4-2013 tomarrow hahaha that they will have to give my tickets worth1398.00 to someone else....from vice president us airlines...thanks for this sight and i wish the real us airlines would sue and close these scam blanks out of buisness!!!!!!!!!
I also received this communication and was curious to see their exploitation scheme, so I called them. Spoke with Brian who told me he was representing company called "Emerald Coast Travel Inc. who was giving these tickets away as a way to promote their new company. In order to get the tickets you (and your spouse (mandatory)) would have to go to the Holiday Inn Express in Port St Lucie to sit through a 90 minutes session and in addition they would throw in a 3 night stay at any Marriot hotel. In order to qualify, you must show up at the appointed time, speak English fluently, be American citizens, make $50,000 annually, be married, and be of age. They verify your name which they already have since they sent you mail and ask for an email address (which everyone should make a free one just for junk/"free deal" stuff like this). It sounds like all the other get-them-to-listen timeshare schemes. I think if everyone attended these manipulator's "opportunity" sessions and acted the fool, they may stop playing games with people.
Just got the same letter. I've never even been on a plane, nor have I ever entered into any sort of drawings for something like this. I did not follow up on the letter cause I knew it was BS. I am a Deputy and unfortunately I have seen a thousand different scams like this. Some people have lost a lot of money on things like this though. The FBI will conduct and investigation but only after they get something like one million complaints on the same scam. So, basically these people will continue to get away with it.
