I've been getting these calls for months. Today, I finally had it. I made up a name, gave the idiot on the line a recent make and model of the vehicle, then when she asked for the CC number, I told her I left my wallet at work and told her to call me there in an hour. I gave her the number to my state's Attorney General office. The number that was on my caller ID was: 321-504-7429
Like all the others, this line was not in service or disconnected.
I am averaging 3 calls per week from a migrating number offering to extend my car warranty. These are coming in on my cell phone.
One time I took the option to speak to someone and asked the compnay name and address. The operator immediately hung up.
The first set I got were appearing to come from Oklahoma, but they number changes every week or two and the calls do not originate where the ANI would indicate so the local Attorney Generals are unable (not unwilling) to help.
Does anybody have a rigged credit card number so I can try to sign up and catch the company that submits the charge?
I got a call from this #, did not pick up... called the number back, got a recording that the # is not in service. A@#$%%$#.

Car warranty scam. I pressed 1 to speak to a representative and held the line until a woman answered it. She asked if I would like to extend the warranty on my car. I asked for her name and company. She claimed that her name was Dorothy and she was with Warranty Services. I then asked her which car she was calling to extend the warranty on, she claims that she doesn't have access to that information. I then informed her that I would reporting her for fraudulent calls to which she promptly hung up.
If you're tired of this crap, take the fun out of it for them, give them a memorable phone call.
They keep calling my fax line 2-3 times a day.
Received call from this number, but was unable to answer it. I called back within a minute and a voice said "Sorry, this number is not in service at this time"

Didnt listen long enough but sounded like a scam trying to say i won free satallite
Car Warranty - press 1 to speak to someone.
Rude person trying to sell me a satellite dish. I don't think it would get good reception in my cubicle.
this is the same message been getting for weeks, just a new false caller ID. THIS IS A IDENTITY THEFT SCAM POSING AS WARRANTY SALES PITCH. DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Called today. I did not answer
We are so frustrated with this number calling us with their car warranty scam. We are going to call our wireless provider and find out if these people are diverting the calls to a foreign company or some other strange way of getting charges on OUR phone we can only pray they lose their list. It's obviously a computer based calling system. It's really starting to tick me off.

purports to offer satellite installation from Dish Network
Like others report above, it's just our old friends with the extended car warranty scam. FBI is looking into the idiots running this one. Warrants and arrests should be completed with three to four months, prison within a year. What a relief! Now if we could just get some civil suits against these creeps it would be great!
A Google lookup identifies this number with Cesar Jara, 2336 Anhinga Dr, Kissimmee, FL 34743. The location agrees with the Grand Central message accompanying this call, but is this really the originating phone number? If not, I pity Mr. Jara. I too have been the recipient of the extended warranty scam calls over the past few weeks. On this particular call, the entire message was "Or three to be removed."

I get the car warranty call at least once a week. It's always "the last call before we close the file" (I wish) I was going to ask for a warranty on my 1985 VW camper w/ 200k miles to see what happens. Pressed 1 but was just put on hold.
Yep, selling some crap I don't want or need. I think they are getting around the not sales call because you have to press "1" to speak with someone.

Left automated message saying "last chance" before my car is repossessed or something crazy like that. Called a second time and left no message.
Left no message, and I did not call back
a mesage about "last chance for car warranty" scam
Call was a voice recording with car warranty spam.
I got this call on 8-11 too. I was actually in Orlando at the time, so I answered it thinking it was the rental car company. For the record, I've only had the cell phone they called for 3 weeks. The ONLY time I've given this number is as my local contact number when I picked up my car at Alamo in the Orlando airport. I just got another call today, from 407-344-4384
, which is an Orlando number.
Called today. I did not answer. No voice mail. I'm guessing it is the car warranty spam. I'll answer it next time and give them the "run around" with a name with a complex spelling, dogs barking at doorbells, family fights, etc.
