hello this is Linda from dealer processing to give you one last courtesy call to let you know that based on our records the factory warranty is expired on your vehicle is that right

The information on this site is based on available user feedback.

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!

Another site showed this as being a car warranty scam. What we got was no message left and the caller ID saying "Potential Spam". I don't answer calls when I don't recognize the number to begin with. And *certainly* not when that's what the caller ID reads. Morons didn't even stay on the line long enough for the answering machine to pick up. Hello, idiots, it's CHRISTMASTIME. People aren't necessarily home to ignore your spam calls....

Scam
Caller Name: This call begins with the person telling me, "I am from vehicle servicing and our records indicate your car is past the coverage expiration, is that right? I see the vehicle here on file is actually still eligible for vehicle warranty protection. For security reasons, let me get a specialist who can give you the details on the vehicle and explain your available options." The phone call is then transferred to another person with a distinct East Indian accent that sounds like all those other fake pharmacy and fake IRS officer scam calls from India. My suspicions that this is a total scam are confirmed when this scammer then asks me what car needs an extension on its warranty coverage. I tell the scammer, "Wait a minute, the other guy said that your records show my warranty has expired and you already have my vehicle records in your files." So the initial message in this phone call is just a scripted lure to pull you further into being scammed. Phone scams victims are often the senile elderly, so instead of just quickly hanging up on scammers, which actually helps these scammers, I love to toy with these scammers and feed them lots of nonsense to use up more of their time and energy. Here was how our conversation proceeded: Scammer: Yes, we know about your cars, but which car do you need coverage on? Me: Hmm, I have 12 cars and I think 8 of my cars all have expired warranties. You said that you already have my records, so you should know. Scammer: Yes, please tell me one of the cars that you need coverage on. Me: My 2012 Continental definitely needs warranty coverage. How much for that? Scammer: (Pauses and then replies) That will be $1100 per year for 2012 Lincoln Continental. I need your credit card number. Me: (After pausing to pretend that I am getting my card, I read him 16 random digits beginning with a "3" for a fake Diners Club card) Scammer: (Pauses as he immediately tries to charge my card) Your number does not work. Me: You are wrong. I just used my Diners Club card this morning. Scammer: Do you have Visa or Master Card? Me: Oh yes, please wait. (I pause while I continue to cut vegetables in the kitchen lol) Me: Here is my Visa card number (I say 16 random numbers beginning with a "4") Scammer: (after a pause) This number does not work. Me: You must have typed it wrong, here it is again (I say the 16 random digits slowly to drag out the phone call) Scammer: Your card does not work. Do you have another card? Me: Oh wait, did you say 2012 Lincoln Continental? My car is a 2012 Bentley Continental GT! Scammer: (after a pause where I hear him talking to someone else) That will be $4600 per year. Please give me your Visa or Master Card number. (I scam this scammer for almost an hour while I am cooking in the kitchen, along with saying several 16 random digits beginning with "5" for MasterCard, before the scammer hangs up on me lol) Fake car warranty extension service scam.

I have the call recorded and I even told her that the call was being recorded and she just call me stupid. I wish I was able to put the 4 min recording on here for the whole world to hear. If there is a way for me to add the recording to this comment let me know.
