scams involving companion passes and employee passes

1. Background: No Delta employee can sell or let someone use a companion pass or employee pass.
2. Scammers will usually will go through something like Craigslist.
3. They gain you confidence by showing you paperwork with Delta's name on it. (not real)
4. They will send you a picture with a badge on it and looks like they work there.
5. Then the will send you your ticket conformation. What they do is call into Delta reserve the tickets and say no credit card and they will reserve for 24=48 hours.
6. At this point you believe them and they have you send money by Pay Pal or by Walmart transfer.
7. In our story they broke it down into 750.00 to each of his nephews in total $1500. Was scammed
Our Story,
I inquired about a companion pass and also a employee passes. on craigslist He said it would be $1500. He worked for delta and was a 2nd to the pilot.
Their phone s is always throw away phones. Once you ask for proof they will take a use fake but looks real paperwork with all your personal information on it. Out Scammer was named "Melvin Robinson" phone number was [protected]. I I will also provide pictures and his phone number at end of this scam.
He then books the flight through reservations and says has no credit card. Delta holds it for 24-48 hours then it cancels. So, We believed with a reservation number that he had done this. At this point he has for money He says "please send it Walmart transfer and my nephews will pick them up. You may only send 750.00 at a time so he gave two names and two phone numbers of his nephews. Name was Kurt at [protected] and Keldrick @ [protected] Also Melvin Robinsons phone number is [protected] They were all bought out of Georgia, the money was picked up in Georgia. "This is exactly what He told me"
"Ok that's great will book shortly just about finish with adding process. You will have to make 2 transaction Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart services. You can use my nephews name.
Kurtis Banks. Americus, Ga 31709 Phone NO# [protected]
Keldrick, Jones .Americus, Ga NO# [protected]
Only reason because they will n0t allow transaction over $1000. So you can split in half 2 payments of $750. Fees will only be $8 per transaction. "
Then everything was fine until 24 hours and I checked our reservation and there was none. I was told to call and talk to
Delta Linda Dunwoody at [protected] faxed over all information. The issue is all she can do is educated you on deltas papers. And procedures
However, in my case I noticed that one or more of the emails came through with someone else's name Ray Bethune. Which made me curious and to come to find out. His name is Rayjthan Bethune (Ray Bethune) works at Endeavor Air who we are:

    Thank you very much for posting this! I have been conversing with him the past few days as well. I believe he has multiple adds, phone num etc. I was told that he worked at Delta Airlines and I said before I was proceeding anything I need to know some information about him being an employee. He gave me the Ray name. I looked him up and found out that he worked for endeavor air. I told him I would message him back. I went to go google some more information and I found this. Thank you so much!!
