Sneaky Marriott. Today a call came in on my cell phone with a local area code. Thinking it was someone I knew, I mistakenly answered it and lucky me, it was Marriott offering me a free night...SPAM time to hang up. Now I will be blessed with them returning these sales spam calls because I stupidly answered, again, lucky me.
As a Marriott Rewards member, do I really have to subjected to this ****? Not a very good way to treat loyal customers that's for sure.
Best thing to do is to block the number as has already been mentioned. Next, make sure you list all your phone numbers on both the National and State No Call Lists. Once you fill out the form online you'll get an email that you must respond to for each number you put on the lists, if you don't follow the email link to active the numbers they will not show up on the No Call lists. It takes a few weeks for the No Call to take affect and it is good for about six months to a year I believe.
Hi all - Marriott is aware of these calls and unfortunately, it is a scam. For more information, please check out the following announcement:
I have been receiving calls, purportedly from Marriott, however I don't believe it is them. I am on the registry both National and State, for my cell phone not being spammed, however, I get calls from this company, even after "opting out" of the solicitation calls. I finally selected to have a representative contact me and when I tried to tell them in person to remove me, they hung up on me. They also ghost their number to appear as a local caller and the phone numbers are bogus, you can't call them back. They have used 3 different local numbers on me so far. This practice of ghosting is illegal. I have not come up with a solution to have them stop contacting me, other than blocking the numbers, but this is ineffective, since they keep using different ones.
Marriott is a reputable organization and I have stayed in numerous facilities and always found them to be nice and their customer service folks have always been professional, courteous, and friendly.
Too bad someone is using them as a front to scam people. I am very frustrated by the number of calls I get and how devious they are. Any suggestions to go after the fakes, I am open to it.
