What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Vehicle warranty robocalls offer extended warranties for vehicles. Warranty scams may be entirely fake -- or they may provide little to no coverage for an absurdly high price. In general, be wary of vehicle warranties offered without a thorough inspection of your car. If they don't want to see your wheels before they add a warranty, you're probably dealing with a scammer. Humorously, vehicle warranty scams have been offered to people who don't even own cars. That's a sure-fire way to know you're talking to a scammer!

Vehicle Warranty
Caller Name: "Potential Spam"

I actually didn't get a message, but you don't have "hangup call" or "ping call" as options. But there are lots of reports of it being a car warranty robocall (as well as older complaints about stuff like credit card phishing expeditions and "government tracking". This number also traces back (supposedly) to some website for a company called "M.W. Orbital" which "provides business solutions" (which appear to be completely *unspecified*; that had better not include providing a place to make robocalls. Some guy on one site claimed he hacked the number, changing their voicemail, and causing outgoing calls to call 911. Part of me is amused because they'll get in a boatload of trouble for fake calls to 911. But part of me is appalled by the idea of a 911 line being tied up by a hacker -- especially between the pandemic and the BLM protests (and the stupee people making counter protests, including the schmuck on the news that said it wasn't the government's business to control people's health and safety! [insert "facepalm" emoji here]).

Scam

Fake "Dealer Services", "Complete Auto Care", or "Consumer Insurance Association" car warranty, insurance, or car payment scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India This is a fake car warranty extension or car insurance scam by criminals robo-dialing from India, trying to steal your credit card number, Social Security number, and personal information. The scam begins with a pre-recorded robotic person speaking English that is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam, and the initial robotic caller usually says something like: "I am from vehicle servicing (or dealer processing) to give you one last courtesy call as our records indicate that the factory warranty coverage on your vehicle has expired, is that right? I see the vehicle here on file is actually still eligible for vehicle warranty protection." or "Hi, this is Karen/Abigail/fake-name and I am with consumer Insurance Association and I am calling about your car insurance payments. How are you doing today?" The phone call may also begin with an IVR robot who interacts with you, asks you some questions, can understand basic replies, and responds based upon your replies. The phone call is then transferred to the India scammer who may call you by your name to sound like a personal phone call to gain your trust, but they are auto-dialing thousands of numbers. Scammers use huge phone database listings of millions of names with phone numbers and addresses to have the autodialer display the name that is currently dialed. The scammer may mention an incorrect brand of car that you own because they are often just guessing at car brands to offer you a warranty extension. Another version of this scam has the scammer telling you that they can lower your insurance rates and pretends that they work with Allstate, State Farm, and others. Their scam works its way into asking for your name, address and other personal information, Social Security and credit card numbers. If you decline their fake scam, they sometimes threaten you, saying that you need their fake insurance or else you can be arrested or fined, or some India scammers even shout profanities at you. A third version tells you that your new car is ready to be picked up from the dealer, but you need to purchase their warranty service. A fourth scam run by this call center has the scammer pretending to be a debt collector and threatens you for being behind on your car payments and again they ask for your credit card number so they can "update your account for the current debt due". More than 95% of North America phone scams come from India scammers who operate hundreds of fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as posing as a fake pharmacy; fake Social Security officer saying your benefits are suspended; IRS officer collecting on fake unpaid back taxes; bill collector threatening you for fake unpaid debts; fake bank, financial, or Fedex/UPS/DHL scams; pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, student loan forgiveness, credit card and debt consolidation services; posing as Amazon to falsely say an unauthorized purchase was made to your credit card or your Prime membership was auto-debited from your bank; posing as Microsoft/Dell/HP/Apple to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem or virus on your computer; fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams; fake Google/Alexa listing and work-from-home scams; posing as an electric utility or Verizon/AT&T/Comcast to say your service is suspended; fake solar panel and home purchase offers; fake fundraisers asking for donations; fake political and lifestyle phone surveys; and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account/routing number, Social Security number, and personal information. One India call center may cycle through a fake Social Security, computer subscription auto-renewal, pharmacy, and credit card offer scam during the week. People often hear different scams from the same spoofed Caller ID number. Scammers often use disposable VoIP phone numbers (MagicJack devices) or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake CID names/numbers. India scammers often spoof fake "8xx-" toll-free numbers. The CID name/number is useless with scam calls unless the scam asks you to phone them back and the CID area code is almost never the origin of the call. You waste your time researching the CID number since scams use spoofed CID numbers from across the U.S. and Canada, totally invalid area codes, and also fake foreign country CID numbers; e.g. fake women crying "help me" emergency scams from India often spoof Mexico and Middle East CID numbers. India scammers also spoof the actual phone numbers of businesses such as Apple, Verizon, and U.S. banks to trick you into thinking that a call is valid. How can you avoid being scammed by phone calls? NEVER trust any unsolicited caller who sells something (most unsolicited calls are scams so your odds of saving money are very poor); offers of a free gift; legal or arrest phone threats or a caller/recording who says you need to reply back soon (pressure tactic); callers who ask you to access a website, download a file, wire transfer money or buy gift cards; claims of suspicious activity on an account; subscriptions being refunded or auto-renewed/auto-debited; and all pre-recorded messages. Recorded messages are far more likely to be malicious scams, and not just telemarketing spam. A common India scam phones you with a fake Amazon recording about a purchase of an iPhone, but Amazon never robo-dials and Amazon account updates are communicated in emails. Many banks use automated fraud alert phone calls to confirm a suspicious purchase, but always verify the number that the message tells you to phone or just call the number printed on your credit card. Any unsolicited caller with a foreign accent, usually Indian, should immediately be treated as a scam. Many scams tell a lie that you recently inquired about a job, insurance, social security benefits, doctor appointment, or that you recently contacted them or visited their website. Scammers try to gain your trust by saying your name when they call, but the autodialer is automatically displaying your name to the scammer or saying your name in a recording when your number is dialed using phone databases that have millions of names and addresses. India scammers often phone with an initial pre-recorded message speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their India phone room, but then you speak to the scammer when you press 1 or call them back. Some speech synthesis software sound robotic, but others sound natural. To hide their foreign accents, some India scammers use non-Indians in their phone room. India scammers use interactive voice response (IVR) robotic software that combines voice recognition with artificial intelligence, speaks English with American voices, and responds based on your replies. IVR calls begin with: "Hi, this is fake_name, I am a fake_job_title on a recorded line, can you hear me okay?"; or "Hi, this is fake_name, how are you doing today?"; or "Hello? (pause) Are you there?"; or "Hi, may I speak to your_name?" IVR quickly asks you a short question to elicit a yes/no reply so it hangs up if it encounters voicemail. IVR robots understand basic replies, yes/no/what answers, and basic questions. To test for IVR, ask "How is the weather over there?" since IVR cannot answer complex questions. IVR robots keep talking if you interrupt them in mid-sentence. IVR usually transfers you to the scammer, but some scams entirely use IVR with the robot asking for your credit card or SSN. A common myth is that IVR calls record you saying "yes" so scammers can authorize purchases just using your "yes" voice, but scammers need more information than just a simple recorded "yes" from you - credit cards and SSN. Phone/email scams share two common traits: 1) The Caller ID name/number and the "From:" header on emails are easily faked; and 2) The intent of scam calls is malicious just as file attachments and website links on scam emails are harmful. Scams snowball for many victims. If your personal/financial data are stolen, either by being scammed, visiting a malicious website, or by a previous data breach of a business server that stores your data, then your data gets sold by scammers on the dark web who then see you as fresh meat and prey on you even more. This is why some receive 40+ scam calls everyday while others get 0 to 2 calls per day. If you provide your personal and financial data to a phone scammer, lured by fake 80%-discounted drugs or scared by fake IRS officers, you receive far more phone scams and identity theft can take years to repair. Most unsolicited calls are scams, often with an Indian accent. No other country is infested with pandemics of sweatshops filled with criminals who belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves and rapists who were serving jail time but released early due to prison overcrowding. India scammers shout profanities at you. Just laugh at their abusive language. Google "Hindi swear words" and memorize some favorites, e.g. call him "Rundi Ka Bacha" (son of whore) or call her "Rundi Ki Bachi" (daughter of whore). Scammers ignore the National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling is useless. You do these scammers a favor by quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams when you slowly drag them along on the phone call, always give them fake personal and credit card data (16 random digits starting with 4 for Visa, 5 for MasterCard), ask them to speak louder and repeat what they said to waste their time and energy.
