And in the following, he lists himself from Troy, NY.
Guess Jim Vandiver will have to refund the $7.50 that National Auto Warranty Services paid him for his post. Good luck on your next career. Or perhaps Jim Vandiver is really Darain Atkinson, the President of National Auto Warranty Services, or Cory Atkinson, the listed Vice President. In that case, good luck in prison.
Here is how to contact these crooks:
You can lookup this company's listing at the Missouri Secretary of State website. Be sure to click on the "Filed Documents" link at the top of the page. If you look under the Annual Report dated 4/3/2008, (and previous filings) you will see the home address of both the President and Vice President of this company. This is public information:
In addition, this Jim Vandiver, or whoever this person really is, has listed more than one location under his profile for different posts. For example, under this post, he is from Council Bluffs Iowa:
This comment is in response to the one from Jim Vandiver.
You are a liar and a shill for National Auto Warranty Services located in Wentzville, MO. We have seen your numerous posts all over the internet and we are on to your lies on behalf of the scumbags at National Auto Warranty Services.
(Note: to everyone: the following refer only to the company National Auto Warranty Services located in Wentzville, Missouri. There are many other companies with a similar name that may be legitimate.)
Also, there is a company known as "Dealer Services." This is the company that sends warranty expiration letters to your house with a logo that is a copy of the one used by General Motors. Guess what? It is the same company!
This company is one of the biggest auto warranty scammers and crooks in the country. There is no way they are legitimate in any sense of the word.
Want proof? View this link, a press release from the Attorney General of Missouri:
They are currently being sued by Missouri for fraud and numerous violations of the state's "No Call Law."
In addition, they are part of a national crackdown on telemarketing fraud from the Federal Trade Commission. This press release clearly shows they were involved in both the state and a federal action:
I have been receiving these calls from warranty since 2005. RE: Car warranty I have blocked these within the last month: 805.985.4838; 323.581.3046; 323.581.3046; 303.615.9102; 717.432.5696; 304.324.8040; 785.890.8855;720.564.0156; 802.878.3477; 802.763.2141. As soon as I block one number,the next day they call again from a different number. The calls come in the morning, every single day.
called my cell i didn't answer.
Calls my cell and doesn't leave a VM. I don't typically answer any calls unless I know who they are.
I am getting calls from (918) 468-2338, but mine are prerecorded messages from the car warranty people. They have the same voice and same message; they use the following phone numbers: (918) 468-2338, 702-520-1478
. They call work, home and cell numbers. They are not just targeting me, they are also calling family, co-workers, etc. I believe these people are using some sort of autodialer and are cloning these phone numbers. When they call my cell, I answer and then hang up. This way it appears to be a dropped call and does not count towards my minutes. Also they are unable to leave a voicemail on my phone any more.

Called my cell and didn't leave a voice mail.
Alot of people are confusing Dealer Services or National Auto Warranty Services in Wentzville, MO with other companies. They do NOT dial outbound to their customers. The best way to figure out who is calling you is to do something like this:
1. Answer the call and play along, act interested.
2. The first person you talk to is likely just screening calls, so agree to speak with a specialist or sales person
3. Go through the sales pitch and tell them you need to call them back with your credit card
4. Get the callback number and post it here, I'll check back over the next few days. I can check as to who the phone number belongs to and verify it with the utility company.

factory car warranty spam
I can't just leave the King of Nigeria with no place to put his vast fortune!!

Car warranty spam. They call me all the time. Today they called again and no message. I need help. I am tired of these people. They are waisting my time and my minutes.
I keep getting these calls (possibly from different numbers) with a cutoff voicemail message concerned that my auto warranty is about to expire. Every time it says this will be the last call. I get these every few weeks or so. Very annoying.
If you don't pick up they never call back.
Spoofed number, cold calls, free satellite tv offer bullcrap, extend you car warrenty, but they don't know your car type. This is a full-on scam number. Beware.
Just this guy Jul 29th, 2008
After receiving about 20 calls, I stayed on the line and tried to tie his time up as long as possible without giving any pertinent information. When I finally asked if he was calling about he Ashton Martin or the Bentley, he hung up on me. The calls still come, but not nearly as frequent.
if you don't pick up they leave a voicemail which uses minuites on cell phone. I also waited for a rep, when i got the call and a guy answered i gave him a peice of my mind he told me he didn't give a F--- and hung up. i called the number back only to get a busy signal then a recorded message that it was diconeccted
No, I'm not a real telemarketer. But i got called by this number and like most people here who have commented, i didn't pick up, yet once i tried to call back line disconnected. So anyone who ever gets any of these random numbers, just don't pick up. Chyeah lata
Telemarketer Jul 29th, 2008
Funny how when you call back it's busy or disconnected. This must be an A.I engine tracking our calls and or internet movements.
Mind yours Jul 29th, 2008
Annoying, when somebody call you and they don't say a word. Let's all report this #, so they can be stopped.
They should be fined big time.
I just received a call from this number - didn't pick up. When I googled the number, it came up as: Shirley Vernon 1214 Federal St, Bluefield, WV 24701 Very weird.
how do I get these c___ suckers to stop calling? Is there a way to block?
miamimarco Jul 29th, 2008
left no message, didn't pick up. Awesome site, glad I found you!
I would like to NOT have anymore calls for this number. If they take the time to call, they should at least say something!!
T.N.Savage Jul 29th, 2008

got a call. did not answer and when tried to call back stated disconnected.
3get partial vm message on my phone from 04-324-8040 saying" select option 3". If I call back I get message saying disconnected.
Prerecorded message about a free satellite television system I "won".
Not sure who they are but they didn't leave a mesage. Some companies even send me text mesage to my sell phone which I have to pay 20 cents each time... i'm getting pissed !

Our friends from Warranty Divisions Inc. File a 1088 with the FCC and have these suckers shut down.

Claims that the factory warranty for my car is about to expire. When I pressed the number to speak to a reresentative, it rang once and then it was silent. It sounded like there was someone on the other line breathing, but no one ever spoke. I get theses calls all the time, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time from this number.
This same company spams my phone from multiple phone numbers (all appear spoofed, so don't bother calling and harassing the poor soul who's number it really is). Each time, I don't pick up and they leave a message. Every single time, the message "appears" to have only been partially caught, but I'm now absolutely sure it's the entire message. They want you to *think* it's something important about your car and that you didn't hear the whole message. Clearly some type of Identity theft scam. They claim to be calling about your vehicle's warranty.
