Have you stayed at one of the following hotels in the past 4 years?

Lucky you!!  There is a possibility your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, passport number, Starwood Preferred Guest account information, date of birth, gender, arrival and departure data, reservation dates and/or  credit card information were stolen in a data breach.  Marriott has reported an unauthorized access to their guest reservation database was made on or before Sept 10 of this year.  However they acknowledge that the criminals have been inside the company’s network since 2014.

In response they have set up a dedicated website, established a call center to answer questions and will be emailing those affected. To make their customers feel better they are also offering a free on year subscription to an internet monitoring service. When a subscriber’s personal information is found on the web, they are  notified.  This service is available to customers in Canada.

If you think you may have been affected, visit the website for more information and look for signs of identity theft.
