SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A company is touting a special travel offer for a weekend away. It comes complete with airline tickets and a few nights in a hotel. All you have to do is answer a couple questions.

The popular mailer is an offer too good to be true.

They have Delta or Southwest logos, but the companies have no direct roll with the offer.

ABC 4 employee Jeremy Miner’s wife recently found the attractive offer in her mailbox. "It seemed a little too good to be true so I went online and I searched some of the information," he said.

A travel agency is using the post cards to attract potential customers to sales events.

Miner said, "I took some of the text from the postcard and I searched that on Google and the only thing that came back was a website, a consumer protection website warning this is a scam.”

Customers have to buy expensive packages to get the free airline tickets. They also have to pay up to $100 in taxes for the tickets.

Jeremy turned the offer down. He's hoping others will take a good hard look too.
