Do not fall for this scam!!! Too many people have been receiving this letter through the years. I recently received one from 1327 Empire Central, Suite 130, Dallas, TX 75247, offering CONGRATULATIONS! Further, informing identification as PRE-APPROVED for a PLATINUM CARD Membership from Union Workers Services with a GUARANTEED $10,000.00 credit limit valid exclusively toward all credit purchases from credit provider! Then, "No need to worry if previously denied access to a VISA or Mastercard because this card offers many benefits," and further, "this is a limited time offer and all deadlines are final, so act

today." Here's the best part. Please enclose

your annual membership fee of $37 by check or

money order along with the attached Platinum Card Activation Form by deadline shown, etc.

These are all red flags for rip-off scams, especially when you are not and have never been a union worker. Now that's funny! You see, no legitimate lending agencies and banks do business in this manner. Please make sure that you report these scammers to the BBB. And together, let's help put an end to Union Workers Credit Services "Rip-Off" Scams.

just called to clarify what the 'travel benefits' are. the card does not finance or allow you to purchase any travel for planes, trains, automobiles, hotels etc. they have an agreement with a local dallas travel company and the card gets you "discounted special prices" but you have to use a regular major credit card in order to book it.

hope this helps anyone else who is looking for the same.

it is same as a JCPenny card or a Macy's card etc. cannot be used to do anything but buy gorman grills. yes spelled that way on purpose.

thanks google and p'od consumer!!!
