WorldstridesUnethical Advertising

I have never been on a trip sponsored by Worldstrides and won't, based on their advertising practices. I received a frankly creepy call from a person stating that their child Eve was in my class and they needed to talk to me about her. I looked up the number he gave [protected]) which was different from the number on the caller ID [protected]) and found that many other people were receiving the same weird call and found it concerning enough to report it. I wasted planning time trying to find a parent who doesn't exist so that I could address a fictitious problem with a student who doesn't exist. If this is how they advertise, I want nothing to do with their trips.

    Neither of those phone numbers connect with Worldstrides? Check out: http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-877-382-0865
    Why is someone giving out and calling from Worldstrides numbers if "There is no way that call came from the company"?

    There is no way that call came from the company. Whatever teacher or parent was organizing the trip would be the first person I would be talking to about this.
