number on caller ID

Been getting these calls for a while now. They have this bogus speil about my vehicle warranty expiring and I can press 1 to get a "live" operator or press 2 to be removed from the list. Pressing 2 does nothing. They keep calling.

They also use this same number for "credit card services," giving you some BS story about your credit rating being in danger.

This is a scam, and they want your financial information.

What I do, however, is run their phone bill up by pressing 1. They (some male, some female, some with heavy thick accents) start off by asking for the year and model of the truck or car. Give them some gobbledygook, and make them pay for calling you. Keep them on the line as long as possible.

If you tell them you don't have a vehicle or a credit card, they hang up on you immediately. If you ask them to idenify themselves, they hang up immediately. Oh,it's not over, because they will call you over and over and over again. When you answer, it seems like there is no one on the line. But if you wait a few seconds, the automated machine starts its speil about the vehicle warranty or credit card services.

Beware of these people. Don't give them any personal information. But do run their phone bills up.
