Hang up when scammers
In recent days ODENZA has noted a significant increase in the frequency of some common phone and email scams. The common thread in each scam is that fraud artists try to trick businesses by claiming to be a legitimate Odenza reseller.
It is important to note that Odenza Marketing Group Inc. is a highly respected company and has been in business for over a decade. All money that is sent to Odenza is held in a trust account. If a customer wishes to discontinue with their travel offer the money is refunded to them immediately.
People who provide personal information to fraudsters could suffer identity theft or other fraud. Personal information includes names, addresses, birthdates, account numbers, passwords, credit card numbers, etc.
ODENZA is warning customers to be aware of these frauds, and to just hang up when scammers call.
The scams are:
ODENZA has received reports of these scams from customers across the United States and Canada. While there’s always some level of fraudulent activity being reported, in recent weeks ODENZA has seen a fourfold increase in reports from customers of all these scams. ODENZA expects most of the fraudulent calls are coming from outside of the United States and Canada.
If you receive a call you suspect is fraudulent, do not give out personal information and simply hang up. Legitimate telemarketers will always know your name and will always provide you with a number for you to call them back at your convenience.
If you believe you may have given personal information to a scam artist and need assistance securing your ODENZA account, please call ODENZA customer service at 1-877-451-7245.
