It has come to our attention that there are a lot of spam emails being sent at the moment that indicate the sender as being American Airlines. These emails are what is known as Phishing Emails and have not been sent by American Airlines.
Also, there are emails being sent with fake offers of employment with American Airlines. If you have received an offer of employment claiming to be from American Airlines and you have not been in contact with or applied to any of our offices please do not send any personal details, money or respond to these emails in any way.
Phishing is the practice of sending phony email messages that are disguised as legitimate and often include company logos that look real. A typical Phishing Email will include a false claim about a customer’s account and either a link or button that takes them to a “spoof” website that mimics a reputable company’s actual website, in hopes that they will disclose personal information such as a credit card number or account information. Some Phishing Emails may also have attachments which may contain potential email viruses.
