I played along with their scam and here's what I got:

Company: AAA Car Warranty
Phone: 866-945-9255

Once you actually get the people in the company they were very nice and added my cell and work numbers to their DNC (Do Not Call) list.

If you actually paid for this service, please call the FBI and FCC. These groups cannot do anything about annoyances, but they CAN do something about people that have been scammed. It is a scam and they are just phishing for your personal info.

I've now gotten calls from this number on my home phone (car warranty pitch on voicemail) AND to my company cell phone number (no vm left).

I get the calls for my vehicle and for consolidating my debt, both from the same company. I usually press 1 and give a long description that eventually fits my bigwheel when I was 5. Either that or I'm in debt because of my gambling and I ask how to get help. After a few minutes they hang up in disgust now that I wasted their time. If everyone took a minute to have some fun all their lines would be tied up and/or all the tools that work for "said" company would quit. Time to brush up on my "Jerky Boys" cd.

This company keeps calling from different numbers all across the nation. Everytime somebody calls I try to get to a real person. When I do get to a real person I have.

1. Asked to be put on the do not call list for the company. They hung up on me.
2. Asked what the name of this waranty company is. They hung up on me.
3. Asked how they got my number. They hung up on me.
4. Called back. Disconnected number every time.

My conclusion is that there is some scam company out there that is using individuals (ever seen an ad for "Earn thousands while sitting at home!") with a proprietary software package, and then they spam call people. They are then instructed to hang up on anybody asking any questions. I wish there was a way to get the actual information for who is leading this so that I could put a stop to it. Literally 20+ different numbers have called me all for the same 'waranty' and every one calls me during the middle of my day at work.

I would kick them all in the soft spot if I could. You just can't block them though because there are simply too many of these numbers calling for the same thing.

Some jack ass called me, I opt to speak to an operator, then after I ask how he got my number the pussy jerk off hangs up the phone. I mean seriously if you're gonna spam phones at least have the balls to talk to the person. I hope you get hit by a car you worthless scum bag!!!!

I keep getting calls from this number also. Its a recording telling me the warranty on my vehicle is about to expire. It doesn't give anymore details other than that. What a scam this is!

I keep getting calls from this number, if I do a reverse lookup on it it comes up with this person:

Scott Nelson

home

street address not available

Montpelier, ID

Which seems to be an alias, as any attempt to call back returns a "number disconnected" message.

Odd.

Anyone know who this is? No message was left, but the area code indicates Idaho.
