I'm curious as to whether Marriot sells our phone numbers? I ask this because I recently joined Marriott rewards and now I'm getting calls on my cell phone offering free nights. I know it's not legit without even continuing the call with them as they seem to come from random local numbers. Seems to be that the timing is much more than coincidental, because how would they know I belonged to Marriott rewards otherwise?
Can someone enlighten me on this? I'm beyond annoyed right now.
That's good to know jm1991. I would hate to think these things happened because we are Rewards members.
I've begun playing games with the random scammers.
One caller told me my Microsoft computer had a virus they needed to fix. I told them I had an Apple computer. Told another one I don't have my computer hooked to the internet.
Another caller has some special deal for Medicare folks. Told them I wasn't on medicare.
Figure since they're lying we might as well give them some of their own medicine.
Amazing how many people can't find something useful to do with their lives.
