Be on the alert for a new phone scam.
If you get a call from someone claiming to a offer free stay at a Marriott hotel, hang up.
Marriott International has released a statement warning consumers of fraudulent phone calls being made in different parts of the world, where the caller offers a complimentary stay at a Marriott hotel in exchange for personal information, or the purchase of a product or service unrelated to the Marriott brand.
“If you receive a suspicious telephone call, especially for a contest you did not enter, we urge you not to provide any personal information, especially credit card information,” says Marriott.
“Instead, simply end the phone call.” – AFP Relaxnews
