Default Has anyone else received this?

I think it is probably another scam..... I received an email last week, someone supposedly recruiting for Aer Lingus. Needing summer contract F/A's. Did anyone else get this from "Philip Bruckner"?

I am pretty sure it would have to be a scam cause he says the pay is 4000.00 WEEKLY!

Just curious.

I believe the e-mail that is circulating is a scam since the reply is not to aer lingus but to Philip Bruckner @inbox.com

Default me too!

I too received and discounted this, 4 grand a week is preposterous. I try to fly 20 days a month at 450-500 per day. That's a ton of flying for a contract cabin attendant. And, in my opinion, I have a hefty day rate, even for CA. I cannot believe it's legit. And, if it is legit, the salary is a typo. Nilson

Default Irish airline

OH MY, how funny!

I got it, but I thought it was a big joke from these guys I met in Las Vegas who were from London and Ireland. They were teasing me that I should move over there so I could be their friend! So, when I got that in my box, I thought it was their sense of humor. I wrote back something funny to them, thinking that I was writing to this one cute fun Irish guy. I did get a few others for private flying, but out of London.

Yes, I met 24 guys from Ireland who were in Las Vegas for a bachelor party. Needless to say, they were fun, full of laughs and I got NO sleep for 2 days.

Doc, I am still out flying since I saw you in LV. This is 28 days out of 30 that I have worked. Going home tomorrow, I hope!

Default Yet another scam

Apparently, this is the latest scam aimed at fleecing flight attendants. Several people have forwarded these messages to me; I understand one job board posted it before being alerted by one of our members that the opportunity had to be fake.

You would think that someone would come up with a "more reasonable" salary in order to fleece people. Then again, I am sure we'll start hearing reports from people that they were scammed.

Don't let greed color your judgment!

Default Aer Lingus?

Not again! I cannot imagine that people would fall for such a ploy. Almost as bad as the Western Union scams you here about.
