Crooked Junk Mail Impersonating Southwest Airlines
This is a piece of junk mail is being circulated that attempts to impersonates Southwest airlines by showing a plane and using the word Southwest capitalized.
It has no address identifying where it came from. There is also nothing identifying the company that sent it. Just a toll free number to call to allegedly get a 3 day 2 night stay at Hilton or similar hotels. Not sure how they define similar. My guess is what you get will not be that similar if you get anything at all for free.
Similar scam was reported here http://talestoldfromtheroad.com/2011/11/02/consumer-alert-southwest-escape-offer-grounded/
As the person in the above link requested, please leave a comment here to let me know if you have more information about this offer and/or company. I would be curious if you got what was advertised and if not what you got instead.
