Travel company posing as Marriott in telemarketing scam

Has anyone else been receiving these calls?  I keep getting them on my cell phone and the recording usually starts out posing as Marriott though I have also received the same style recordings posing as Priceline, Expedia, even United Airlines.

 

The caller ID will usually show a local number - this is because the caller is using hacked cell phones to munge the caller-ID into showing up as a local call.  The "Travel Agency" is actually a group calling themselves Holiday Sands International out of Cancun Mexico.  Their website is holidaysandsinternational dot com and they game me a number of 1-800-982-7431een

 

This has been going on for several months now and the complaints are really starting to pile up and Holiday Sands International is rally giving Marriott a black-eye online because of all the illegal telemarketing.

 

I uploaded a recording of the call at www.goodnerd.com/audiofiles/holidaysands1-marriott.WMA

 

Sorry about the voiceover saying AVS Media DEMO - I was using a 30 trial version to cut down the audio file
