I received a letter fold from them today. At first I thought, must be a bill or government as it had my middle initial, something I do not normally use in communications. When I read it, I almost went to dial, thinking this must be from a bill collector who is going to extraordinary lengths to get me to call. I thought, I have nothing to fear, but then I remembered a few months back a call from the Dominican Republic that showed up on my bill (I had it removed, they called me and I hadn’t answered!). I figured I better look it up before dialing to make sure of where or whom it was coming from. The dates are done oddly, the 14th, need to call by April 24th, 2014, has US AIR SOUTHWEST AND JET BLUE and MARRIOTT HOTEL. Value of the 2 tickets supposedly $1,398.00. Their return number is listed as 1-855-867-8217 signed by Carla Streetman, Guest Services Manager. I simply typed the number into my browser and it gave me several sites, all noting this as a scam! My suggestion, is not to call them, just contact your local post office or FBI (we have one in town!) and let them track it down. This is considered a crime, whether your post office will treat it as such, is another matter. I’m concerned where they got my info, since it included my middle initial, not something that is one much other than government documents and my SS card. Warning: Just don’t fall for it. A little common sense and a bit of thinking, and even me, blonde to the bone, picked up on that something was off on this.
Good idea to send to USPS postal inspector
