How about if we all get together and waste their time the way they are wasting ours?! Press "1" to get a representative on the phone and make up a car! Make it a good one, like a 2009 Lamborghini! Google the top 10 most expensive cars in the world and see how far you can get without spending a dime on a warranty for a fictitious dream car. I have tried every possible option to get rid of these callers! I have about 5 different "auto warranty" places that keep pestering me, even though I am on the DNC list and have asked them to stop and told them that I am on the DNC list and that I am reporting them. At this point it makes more sense to waste their time and use them for cheap entertainment. They have wasted way too much of my time!

These people have been calling me several times a week for a few months now. I've tried everything from: -pressing "2" to "close my file" (doesn't work), -telling them I don't own a vehicle (doesn't work), -asking them nicely to stop (doesn't work), -yelling and threatening them (doesn't work), -telling them I've reported them to the FTC several times (doesn't work). So I've resorted to a new plan of attack and I think everyone else should too. TOTALLY F%$& WITH THEM. Pretend to legitimately want to renew your warranty. Make up fake vehicle makes and models, VIN numbers, names and credit card numbers. Keep them on the phone as long as possible (tell them they have to wait while you gather info, etc. and put them on hold for 5 minutes each time). Tell them you have several vehicles that need warranties. Act as legitimate as possible because they hang up at the first sign of problems. I had them on the phone for 20 minutes the other day. I'm hoping eventually they'll realize it's a major waste of time to call my house.

I am on the DNC for a very specific reason - my phone is for my use not these gutless wonders who do not leave a message. I said in another comment wqe all need to call the White House switchboard 202-456-1414 and express our displeasure with the enforcement with the enforcement of DNC. check out my comment at 561-784-9844.

Another SILENT call. I pick up the phone and say hello several times. Silence. I hang up.

But from all your comments it seems to be the same old "auto warranty calls" I've been getting for over a year now. I've told them I don't even have a car & I'm on DONOTCALL.

I've filled a DONOTCALL complaint every single time they call. I've filed FCC complaints. I've calling my carrier (Tmobile). When the # is even a real # I"ve reported it to that state's Attorney General. I've even tried local police in the city the calls originate from in FLA.

Nothing seems to work!!

P.S. I read last week that Verizon sued a film company for recorded calls promoting a movie, maybe Verizon user can make their carrier track them down & sue them (since mine won't!)

I saw lots of complaints already. Here is another one. Listened to the message and dialed 2 to close my file. It never closed. Also I dialed one to speak to someone. But, they just hang up when I tried to explain my problem.

I listened to the message, car warranty baloney, dialed one to speak with someone. (I have also dialed 2 to 'close my file'.) A guy answered and asked me to confirm make and model of my car. I asked where he was calling from, he said Florida. I asked what company and he hung up on me.

I am also on the 'Do Not Call' registry.

This is part of a ring of scammers trying to get auto ownership info and other personal info from people. Clearly a scam!

Just got a call from 305-441-5947 (caller ID showed Florida Call) telling me my factory car warranty was about to expire and to press one to speak to an agent. I asked the agent which car they were calling about. She asked which car had the soon to expire warranty to which I replied, "you tell me, you called" And then can you believe it, she hung up, "b***h". Oh well, I guess they didnt want to scam me out of money.

Call starts with a recording: "URGENT, your warranty is about to expire! Press 1 to speak to a specialist."
Pressing 1 gets an operator who asks for your name, zip code, make, model, year, and mileage of vehicle. The operator then passes you off to a "warranty specialist."
I led the specialist on for a while - he offered me a 4 year, 100K warranty for $3500 with a $500 down payment and 18 "easy monthly payments" for an Expedition, and a $3009 warranty for a hypothetical Ford Taurus (a 2006 whose warranty would not even have expired yet). Claims his boss paid $4500 for a warranty on his 2005 Corvette and has recouped $5700.

He got really annoyed when, at the 19 minute mark, I asked if he covered older cars, like my 1999 Ferrari. Nope. OK, we'll go with two. How would I like to pay? "I'll just use my good looks."

He was a bit pissed off then, and threatened to call me every hour on the hour forever.

But he couldn't tell me my phone number.

LOL

Another "warranty" service call. Dead silence at first but when I said "hello?" again I immediately got a recorded message about a warranty. Reporting it to the DNC List since I've been on that for years. Seems to be related to the 305-408-6643 scam as well, just a different number this time.
