The employee took the tourist’s WhatsApp number from the company’s system without her permission.
Rabat – A US citizen has accused an employee of Morocco’s carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) of harassment after he used her WhatsApp number without her permission.
The woman called Maria Gladstone shared a screenshot of the RAM employee’s message on WhatsApp with a complaint to the national carrier.
She explained that she was at Casablanca International Airport on December 2. The US tourist presumed that the RAM employee had taken her number from the company’s system to text her.
“Does he have my address too? I feel very unsafe about this,” she added.
Despite the removal of the original post from her Facebook, the screenshot of the employee’s message to the tourist had already gone viral on Facebook and other social networks.
Some Facebook users shared the post, calling the employee “RAM’s Romeo”.
The original WhatsApp message reads: “Hello Maria, i (sic) don’t know if you remember when you were in casablanca airport, i (sic) did the check in and I asked about your number, actually i did that [because] in [the] airport they don’t allow s (sic) to take personal informations (sic) from passengers.”
“i’m (sic) sorry if i got your number without your permission,” he added.
The American woman, whose Facebook info says she is from New York, denied having given her number to the RAM employee.
“Edit: to be clear, I never gave my phone number out to anyone. The only way he would have found it is from the airport,” she said.
