Free Trip

  • People will receive a letter at home offering free plane ticket
  • The plane ticket is from a "National Airline" offering 2 free plane tickets
  • These tickets are worth nearly $1300
  • A good salesperson pressures them into buying the tickets by calling a toll-free number

How To avoid this

  • If you receive one of these, you just should not believe this is real.
  • Throw away the ticket right away so you don't forget or have another family member try to use it.

Exclusive Club

  • Refunds are nearly impossible to get back.
  • Don't accept any offers you get on email or a random phone call.

Want Some Pizza? Think again

  • The scammer will put a pizza menu in your mailbox, hotel, or motel room.
  • You call the number for the pizza and give them your credit card information and BAM! You gave your credit card to a criminal who now has access to your account.

Avoid this!!

  • Delivery people have their own paying device with them
  • Pay when you see the food
  • If their POS system is down, just refuse to give credit card and pay with cash or just forget the pizza and eat in for the night.

No crust! So no carbs so I had to try it. It completely satisfied the pizza craving and the cheese cru"
