These people have a series of phone numbers used. This one 239-263-5860 (Naples, FL), 407-207-0820 (Orlando, FL) and 954-773-7981 (Hollywood,FL). If you challenge these individuals, they become verbally abusive and threaten legal action. Bring it on. I have filed complaints with:

the FTC https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/dod/wsolcq$.startup?Z_ORG_CODE=PU01
and FCC (form 1088) https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/consumer.do

Hope it does something, but I doubt it. This is what I have so far.

New: Oswego police warn of car warranty scam

March 12, 2008
BEACON NEWS STAFF
Oswego police are warning about a potential phone scam involving calls about vehicle warranties.

Police were made aware the phone scam after a resident received an automated call involving an offer to update their warranty.

The resident received the call from 407-207-0820 and the automated voice instructed them to push 'one' for more information, police said.

A person then answered the phone and asked the Oswego resident for their phone number.

The resident asked which vehicle the caller need warranty information about, police said. The resident was told their car was in declined status and the call disconnected.

Further investigation determined that calls from this number have been made throughout the United States, police said. Most calls referenced an offer to lower credit card rates. Police believe this scam originates from a foreign country.

Oswego police remind residents to be careful in situations where personal information is being requested and always report suspicious activity to police.

When I called the number back a recording said "the number you have dialed is no longer in service". I had called back within 30 mins of receiving the call. Must be some sort of telemarketer.

No caller ID (I got it from *69), but when I answered the call it was an automated system - press 1 to speak to an Agent. Agent identified the company as "Warranty America" - they wanted to extend my auto warranty policy - they had my name and address, but refused to identify my car model (Don't you know what kind of car you drive?"). Looking at the website for Warranty America - they acknowledge that people are having this call problem, but swear they are not behind the problem. I will log a complaint with my Attorney General (minnesota). If no one does anything about these types of scams, vulnerable people will keep getting ripped off. It's worth an hour of my time...

Just did a google search on "Sao Tome and Principe". That is actually a small island nation off the coast of Africa. I'm guessing these scammers are routing the calls through a number in the 239 AC. They've called before but the Caller ID on my phone listed nothing. They caught me online this time, and my software ID'd the call as originating from "Sao Tome and Principe". For what it's worth.....

I have received 2 calls from this number with an automated message telling me my auto warranty was about to expire. I pressed 1 to speak with a "warranty specialist" and she said it was the last courtesy call before my warranty expired, and that I might want to extend it. She asked me for some general info about my car, then when I said I needed to call my dealership (because my warranty should still be good for a while), she hung up the phone. Obviously this was a scam. How can we report these people??

I've been called twice by this number and both times it was an automated voice attempting to sell me an auto warranty. Both times when I waited for a real person I was asked for info about my vehicle, then hung up on when I asked to speak to a manager. Very shady.

I get a message on callback that number is not in service. When I answered the call initially, I got a recorded message which was completely garbled, with a lot of static on the line.

I called the number back and it was "not a working number at this time." Questionable!

It is a scam. They are not in the National Do Not Call Registry so you can't file a complaint. They want your card information so they can use it to buy stuff. Typical fraud. Hope the government get those jerks.

Someone from this number called and talked to my 93 year old mother, who is coonfused very easily. My mom was left with the impression that they were trying to collect a debit from her (which is impossible since she doesn't owe anyone). When you try to call the number back, you get a recording saying the number is not in service.

The phone number points to a business? in florida. these poeple keep calling me and leaving a message like - Hello. This is Heather at account services. And we're calling in reference to your current credit card account. There's no problems currently with your account. It is urgent however that you contact us concerning your eligibility for lowering your interest rate. To as little as six point nine percent. Your eligibility expires shortly. So please consider this your final notice. Please press one now on your phone to speak with a live operator and lower your interest rate. Or press two to discontinue further notices. Thank you and have a great day. Even pressing 2 to be removed does not seem to stop it.
