Amarillo Police have issued a warning about a nationally reported suspicious letter being mailed to residents.
The letter, according to police, is postmarked from Phoenix, Ariz., and appears to be from "US Airlines."
Police said the letter starts by saying it must be replied to by a certain date and that the recipient won two round trip airline tickets.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) said the letter appears to be similar to a letter reported to it in July. The letter asks the recipient to call a 1-866 number.
In the Texas Panhandle, the BBB said it has received multiple phone calls about the letter and at least one person responded and was given a second number to call.
Police said if anyone receives this letter to simply trash it. Anyone who may have lost money because of the letter is asked to contact police at (806) 378-3038.
