warranty, called everyday for weeks, pre-recorded msg. I have added my number to do-not-call list. Filed a complaint also. For me, this number began in January and hasn't shown up in February. Guess they've moved on to calling from new numbers.

When I saw "Houston, TX" as the caller ID I worried that I had offened an old sort-of-a-girlfriend when I quickly answered & hung up, expecting her to call back right away... but the follow-up never came, not even a week later. Ironically, the very reason I'd done the "pick-up & hang-up right away" routine was so that I could switch away from the rather offensive voicemail greeting I had recorded specicically to discourage, guess what?... irritating TELEMARKETERS! At least now I can relax in knowing that I did not offend anyone I'd actually been looking forward to talking with.

Tonight, I filed a complaint with FCC and FTC.

I have received multiple calls from this place warning me about my expiring auto warrenty. This is the first time I've been around to answer my cell phone-all the others went to voice mail. I pushed option 1 to speak to someone and the man answered "parts dept." and hung up on me when I told him that this was about the fith call I've received from them. The last time I got one of these calls I called the number back and received a message saying I had been removed from their list. This time when I called the number back I got a message saying something about long distance service.
Other numbers that have called me with the same car warranty message are:
281-520-3761
526-289-8136 3x

Called on my cell phone several times - didn't answer cause I didn't recognize the number. Finally looked it up here and found out it was a telemarketing call. I decided to use some of my favorite telemarketing sites to try and get $ from them (http://www.junkbusters.com/script.html). They finally called again and I answered. The recorded message said the warranty on MY car was about to expire so I pressed 1 to talk to them. After about 3 minutes on hold, a very loud lady picked up and yelled "What is the make, model, and year of your car?" She didn't say the name of the company, verify any of my information or anything. Her loudness and boldness through me off. I asked, "What the reason for the call was?" She immediately hung up.

This was a dumb question on my part, I should have just made up some car to tell her. I guess the way the law works is they can call us and just hang up if we ask them any questions they don't want to answer. They haven't called back since (good) and it been about a week.

This line belongs to a corporation NATIONAL ONE. The carrier is VERIZON operating as a DBA. I have place a complaint with VERIZON and this is presently under investigation so I was told. I just got done spending 14.95 to get as much detail as they have been placing calls to my wife while I'm not home. Looked up some info on corporations using NATIONAL ONE name, but they all seem to be on the up and up......................

One had a voice announcemnet that said something about the warranty on my car. One was in spanish - I couldn't understand it. I hung up when I heard the announcements, or just ignored the ring when I saw the phone number. I'm sure they are just scammers.

I've gotten calls from all of these numbers and keep getting them. I wonder if the people who created this site are in direct conjunction with the people who are calling me over and over. I am not picking up these random numbers any more, and havent been. No messages were left so I guess it really wasnt important. Now I'm listing this number and we'll see if I get another phone call after I post this huh? I've visiting this site on a weekly basis now... Strange huh?

Here are the Numbers that Have Called Me:

Call came in on my cell phone, was expecting a call from my daughter so I didn't bother to look at the caller ID. If I had, I would have noticed that it was an out-of-state call (which I would not normally answer) and it was a recorded message which I hung up on immediately-I don't waste my minutes on this kinda crap!

These dudes left the same bizarre cutoff message (about being out of warranty and needing to renew and that I shouldn't make the mistake of driving without a warranty) on my cell and work phone (both unlisted numbers) within a couple hours of each other.

Received call from this number. Said warranty on cr was about to expire and this was the last contact. Knew that my warranty was not about to expire. The asked for the make and model of my car. Told them that they should have that info if they were calling me about my warranty. Said they had mailed info to me which they have not. Tried to get information on my address so they could retrienve my information. When I asked the caller to give me the name of the person they wanted to speak to receive some BS about having to retrieve info and call me back. Kept interupting me. When I told him to stop interrupting me and answer my questions he hung up. This is obviously a scam. Do not answer any of their questions or give them any personal information.

I had this number call me with an automated voice telling me my vehicle warrenty was about to expire and I need to renew it. When I pushed one to talk to a representitive I got through to someone (suprisingly!)and I proceeded to ask him what this was all about. I told him I had no idea what vehicle he was talking about (as I have several) and he told me that they had sent me notices in the mail about it. I said I had not recieved them and asked where he was sending them. He ignored me. I asked him where he was located because I recognized it as a Texas number and I did live in Dallas at one point. When I asked him that, he hung up on me. I guess it wasn't that important after all.
COdy
 Jan 14th, 2008
It is a scam - they try selling you a extended warrenty - and than ask for a credit card number. Also - the number orginates from a cell provider. Which most likely means that they have a private network that uses a private server. The people working for them mostlikely can be based from any PC with a internet connection and a software like skype (anything that offers internet calling). Goto https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/1088gform.do and report the number.

I don't know who these people are. They called my cell phone (not sure how they got the number) and hung up. I called back and received a busy signal each time. If they are a car warranty company I don't know why they are calling me. I don't even have a license to have a car to have a warranty on, so I'm certain I never signed up for anything that would signal phone solicitation for anything vehicle-related. I want a number to call these people back so that they can remove me from their database. Anyone have a number?

They're adding this number to their call-from numbers this week. They call every day, up to four times in one day. They call from many different numbers, most often from a 352 area code number, but all different area codes are used. Today, it's been two times, but the first from the 352 number. This has been going on for months. I'm starting to track all of these calls and got 9 between Mon am and Fri noonish one week in Dec. All are a recording. There is never a person, even if I don't hang up. I should not have to follow their instructions and enter any info into my phone in order not to be harrassed every day for years. Others who do interact with them, are still harrassed. If only I had a nickel for every call I've ever received from them, but by now, with all the interruptions and harrassments, I need much more than a nickel per call to pay for my grief. If anyone ever succeeds from getting off their list by pressing either or both of the numbers they say to press, please let us know.

We have been receiving calls from this number for a couple months, several times a week. The recording says press 1 to speak with a representantive and 2 to be put on the do not call list. After pressing 2 for the past few weeks, I decided to push 1 today. After being on hold for 10 minutes, some teenager picked up and said he would put me on the do not call list. We'll see, not holding my breath!
