Marriott International has issued a statement regarding a series of fraudulent calls that people have been receiving across the world.

According to the group, several people were contacted with offers of a complimentary stay at a Marriott property “to entice the person taking the call to listen to a sales pitch unrelated to Marriott”.

In a statement online the group said: “Marriott International has a long-standing commitment to protecting the privacy of personal information that is entrusted to us. Marriott has not provided any information to the parties involved in these fraudulent calls.  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.  Instead, simply end the call and report it.”
