Got the same letter on 1/28/13. I already know bulk rate mail is a scam so in the shredder it's going.
If you look at the back there is a disclaimer and it says this is sponsered by G.V.N. in Clearwater FL. That address is to a private condo listed in tax records under Buckeye Holdings

Letter no return address. Labeled " PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL".
Presorted standard US Postage paid Tampa, FL, PERMIT #78
Tear off ends on envelope.
I supposedly won two airline tickets. Did not call. Looks sketchy. I'm reporting this to post office.
I too received the same letter dated March 4th, 2014, it was signed by Carla Streetman, Guest Services Manager. Claim number is 36-002-7205. At the bottom of the form letter "2TA0304R" is displayed.
Scammer is using US postage permit #78 from Tampa Florida.
Received the same letter from Dana Kline with a contact number of 1-855-879-8217. My first question is where would US Airlines fly from. I know there is a US Airways, but failed to find a US Airlines. Total scam, shred the letter, it's a total Phishing Scam.
Caller name: automated call
I've gotten several phone calls from this number saying I've won 2 tickets, etc. just press 1 to claim, or 2 to be taken off their list. I always press the option to discontinue, but I think all I've done is let them know someone answered because the calls have NOT stopped. I started getting letters like what's described above too. Total scam.

Got same letter as everyone else here. I knew it was BS right away.
I will be sending a copy of this to the jerky boys they can use this for some of their material to do some silly calls and post them up.
I wish there was a way to go through the phone line and magically choke someone like darth vader but over the phone.
Telemarketers are lower than pond scum.
Any piece of mail that comes folded in thirds with 2 pieces of tape holding it together yet says 'personal and confidential' on the front and is stamped with a 'presorted standard postage paid in Tampa, FL permit #78' is probably not a real winner notification. Shred it. Thank you to all of those who have gone before me. Good luck to all of those after.

Oh yeah Billy? Where will the tickets take you? Have you tried to use the tickets yet? Did you just have to send a check to cover the taxes and landing fees to Canada or Nigeria? Try to use the tickets and let us know how embarrassed you were when the cops were called!
Got the same letter. Depending on you definition of scam. I think its just a travel company trying to get you to buy their services. Probably just uses the free ticket possiblility to get you on the phone to listen to a sales pitch. Not as bad as a true scammer or phisher but won't be calling anyway. I don't want to have to sit through a sales pitch.

Please call me today at 1-855-879-8217.
Your Claim Number is: Some Number
I got the same letter today, telling me that I'd won 2 roundtrip airline tickets with US Air, with a retail value of up to $1,398.00. The letter looks totally fake, no address, and some scam phone number, and signed by Dana Kline, Vice-President.
This is going straight into the trash.
This phone # 855-879-8217 was contained in letter that arrived in our mail. It is apparently a scam for 1,398.00 of round trip airline tickets. According to Scam Alert on the real US Airways website, and the better business bureau blog, this is a scam and US Airlines does not exist. If you google US Airlines Scam, tons of information is available from people who are receiving these letters all over the country. Some envelopes are hand written with a regular stamp, others are printed and look like state/government letters. There is no return address on the envelope and no return address on the letters. The phone numbers change all the time. There are some 866 numbers as well, such as 1-866-546-1767. Some letters are signed by Vice Presidents, others are signed by Guest Services Manager, etc. Many of the envelopes are post- marked from Phoenix Arizona, and Tampa, Florida. The letter that we received had a heading at the top that said: Fly the US Airlines with the "Fly the" in very tiny print and US Airlines in huge, bold print. Underneath that heading, were listed: US Air, American Airlines, Southwest, United Airlines, Delta and Jet Blue. This appears to be an "evolved" strategy as earlier versions of the letter just listed US Airlines, which does not exist. There is a great article from Aug 1, 2013 in the LA Times that further explains the nature of this situation. On the BBB Blogsite and the US Airways website, both are recommending that people report these letters and/or phone calls to their local BBB and local authorities

I actually received this as a callback number in a letter offering free flights. I can't believe no one has done anything about this in three years. Besides being fraud isn't it a breach of the telco's TOS? Can't the company cancel the service?
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.

I was told I won two free tickets. They wanted my credit card info, for "federal taxes and fees" . They are operating in Alaska out of Marriott Residence Inn, 1035 E 35th ave, in Anchorage Alaska. Marriott has so far declined to shut them down.

I too recieved one of these letters saying I must respond no later than July 25th, 2013. I am supposed to call 1-855-879-8217. My claim number is 01-020-9809. It seems everybody passed, that is why I am the alternate. Well, I am not interested in these tickets, so I will pass too. Haha!
There is no such airline company as US Airlines.
This is signed by Elise Warren, Guest Servies Manager. Code on bottom of letter 2AA0715W
Received a letter Jan. 23, 2013 under USS Airlines letterhead stating I qualified for two free tickets anywhere in continental US with a limit if $1,398. Has to be a scam and thus us mail fraud. Instead of wasting money minding other people's business in Afghanistan and Iraq, US government should be spending the money on law enforcement at home.
