On to the Hotel

We are pulling out of the Airport and my phone rings again. There is an angry man on the other end asking where we are. He says he is waiting to pick us up. I am assuming the dispatchers got there wires crossed. I ask our driver if there is a mix up and he said no. I told the guy on the phone we were already on our way to the hotel and I hang up. Now I get a text telling me not to get in the car. Again the phone rings and now this guy is arguing with me saying I contacted them for a ride. I hung up on him again. I realize he knows all of my information, the flight and our hotel. Remember when I mentioned earlier that I was comparing prices for rides from the Airport….. BEWARE the company I asked for a price quote said they required the details to give an accurate quote. When I submitted the information I specifically reminded them I was only looking for a quote, NOT A CONFIRMED RESERVATION. If we had arrived at the Airport on time I fear we would have been picked up by this town car company and they would have wanted money when we arrived at the Hotel. I pre paid for our Shuttle as always. I actually was afraid he would show up at our hotel. I had a dozen text messages and even more phone calls before the evening was over. I answered one more time and told him I would turn him and the town car company in if he called me again. What a SCAM! I wonder how many unsuspecting people they do take advantage of. Think about it, once you are in their car you are at their mercy.Alaska Cruise D2 075
