THE DETAILS ON THE COMPANY - based upon above link
"You get a call stating that your car warranty is about to expire. You remove your number from their list. They call you back in less than a week and just keep calling. You try to *69 or hit callback on the caller ID and it ALWAYS says the number is disconnected yet they JUST called you from that number. Well ladies and gents Here are their REAL numbers 949-475-9500 800-499-5711
I got these by bullshitting the rep that called me for 20 min. Please call them 20, 30, hell 50 times a day. Its what I did and finally the guy said "Look, we will take your number off our list just please stop calling here!" When you call...offer then a new home warranty."

This "company" is "Auto One Warranty Specialists", 17752 Sky Park Cir, Irvine, CA 92614 - Ph: 949-475-9500
. Talking to a rep, he stated that they get their call list from a national registry. I advised him that my number was on the DNC list. He was clueless as to what the DNC list was stating "You are way above my head ma'am". When I asked to speak to a supervisor, a manager, a floor manager, or a call center manager, I was told there were none in the building, as it was near 7pm (9pm central) and their call center closes at 7 pm. So I asked him, who locks the doors then, and he hung up. Checking monster.com for "Auto One Warranty Specialists", they advertise jobs for their call center, as a 24/7 call center. *ACHOO* Sorry, Im allergic to BS. Additionally, this company also sends out junk mail for your "Final Warranty Notice", and you will get about a dozen of these final notices. The number on the card is 888-978-7704
, and goes to an inbound call center. If you are on the DNC list, and make a complaint via the DNC list, nothing will happen. File a complaint with the FCC instead at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/complaints_tcpa.html.
this is a little freaky - I received 3 calls on my office phone (I am new to this company and nobody knows my number) after the 3rd call I subsequently received the same call on my cell phone a few minutes later. my cell phone is personal and not affiliated with the company.
I am hoping it is just a coincidence.
Didnt get a call! Received a card in the mail....
Did a google search and found this site!
These kind of people are annoying...grrr!! lol
I am glad i am not the only one!!!
This company has called me every week for 2 months. It is our second home, so we are not always in residence. The last time they called and I was home I chose "9" which is supposed to remove your name from the call list. This time I selected "1" to be connected to a specialist; when he answered the line and I asked the identity of the company he quickly switched me to a pre-recorded message about "do not call" lists. Who are these jerks and how can we stop their calls!
I don't have caller ID and never thought to check *69 until reading the comments here. Thanks folks! I found this site by doing a search because I am being SO BOMBARDED by Car Warranty phone calls. At least one a day, usually two or three. Every once in a while it is a real human and I am able to take out a lot of frustration on them. But 99% of them are those recordings and they are beyond annoying. I was hoping to learn of something I could do to stop them. I guess I will just have to stop answering the phone but that makes me mad too!
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent and for giving me some ideas.
got a card in the mail from this company with this # on it!! It's from a company called "Auto One Warranty Specialists."
here is their address for anyone who wants to write & complain !! Also helps to write the CA Attorney General and BBB of that area to get them shut down.
Auto One Warranty Specialists:
4521 Campus Dr Suite #389
I bet it has dozens of college students making a buck off of stupid people who think they are going to get a Factory Level warranty on their 17 year old Datsun!!
There is also an "800" number to call:
I am unlisted as well as on "do not call list" and still get telemarketers.
What I do, since I have unlimited long distance calling from my phone company, is call these bastards back when they call or leave messages...after a few times they get the hint.
My last favorite, I called a company that was selling siding, after I had told them I lived in a brick home, and asked if they could repair my TV. They finally threatened to turn ME in if I did not stop calling!!!
Best to simply not answer it if you don't know the number.
If they persist, I do answer it...and promptly confront them constructively (it's an art form). 1) "How/where did you get this number?" (answer is irrelevant); 2) This number is used for official government business (soliciting some departments is a MAJOR no-no). That ends the calls forever.
It's not up to them to know specifics once you say that...just listen as they defecate down both legs, apologize, and you never hear from them again. It scares off the wolves...especially at dinnertime. ;-)
I got this call at 7:28pm on 3/5/07. Called it back when I got home because I do have friends in Sioux City, IA...got a freaking recording saying something I couldn't understand...another telemarketer...good grief leave people alone.
wasn't home didn't leave message
Received call March 3, 2007 at 12:18 pm. No answer when I said hello. Held the line, tried to disconnect twice before getting the beep beep of the dial tone.
Received a call from them minutes ago. It was a dishonest, unsolicited sales pitch from "Warranty Auto."
I *69'ed it and got a company claiming to be "Gifts, Inc." At least I think that's what it was--the answering machine message was deliberately distorted as best I can tell. They make it easy to put you on *their* "no-call list," which is probably how they think they will avoid prosecution.
I picked up the phone and got a recorded message saying my car may still be eligible for an extended warranty. It said press 1 if I was interested (ha!). Then it said press 9 to go on the do not call list (I didn't do that either, that's just like clicking the unsubscribe link in a spam email).
I did have an accident recently so I wonder if they got my number from some list related to that.
received this call to extend an existing car warranty
I have been called thrice already today and each time I answer the phone the caller hangs up.
Please do not call me again.
Called at 9:50 am and didn't leave message. Used Google and got here. Iowa call.
My caller ID said "out of area" at 9:40am CST. They did not leave a message.
called. Didn't answer thanks to this site I realize that is a good thing. I guess do not call list doesn't pertain to them?
Same thing here, I didn't answer but they left no message.
This message was regarding vehicle extended warranties
Got a call at 9:37 am on 2/28/07. Automated message claimed I could receive warranty protection on my car (Auto One Warranty Protection). I hung up and then dialed the number on caller ID and got a message from Gift, Inc. that I could be added to their Do Not Call list. Then the call was disconnected. I hung up.
Its some auto warranty place
Got a call from this number. They left no message. Didn't answer it.
Have received a few calls from this # - most recent on 2/23/07 at 2:08 p.m. No message left.
2/26/2007, 11:50 am PST, no message.
Me too. No message. Very annoying.
When I answered the phone, the recording states that they are "Auto One Warranty" and that you can "press 9 to speak to an agent to be removed from the list." When you press 9, you get a recording stating that you have been removed, then it hangs up. You never speak with an agent. When I called the number back, I got a very stilted recording identifying the company as "Gift Inc."

I got it today at 3:30. Didn't answer.
I am totally deaf. can't pick up the voice phone.
Yet another annoying phonecall.
Nothing annoying about this website, though! Cool idea!
Called this number back. Answering machine picked up, said it was Gift inc. Said sales calls are annoying and we can put our phone number on their do not call list...hung up on me
They called....hung up when Voice Mail started picking up and it was at 1:36 PM Central Time on 02/22/07
I got a call from this number too and they didn't leave a message either. When I called back, the recording said, "This call did not go through. Please try your call again later."
Just called, left no message.
i get this number on my call history list a lot!
I've so had it with Telemarketers, ship'em all to Irak, they can get THAT new economy going! Called today at 10am, I never answer!
Called today at 10:00 EST. Didn't answer it
They called at 5:17 pm on 2/19/07. I didn't call answer it or call back because I did not recognize the nunber.
Caller from IOWA left message about selling car warranty and cheap loans or something.
Attempted to call back, got "We're sorry, your call did not go through." Miserable hun dan have no problem calling us, but apparently they don't like to be called.
Telephone Marketers Never give up.
I answered, it was a recording of a woman selling warranties for vehicles...hung up.
There is'nt anyone from the 712 area code I need to talk to. So I picked up the phone and insisted that the man give me his home phone number and that I would verify it with my cell phone while he was on the line. Then I said I would give him all the time he wanted for his phone call. My feelings were so hurt when he hung up on me. I recommend everyone try this, you will end up laughing instead of being angry...
Same as everyone else.....I searched it on Google. That's when I found this site.
same here, Iowa call did not answer no message.
Auto One Warranty Specialist.
Got a call from this number also and found this thread. Great to have communication such as this.
caller ID showed this number. Did not answer, did not know who it was.
Picked it up though it said "unknown name" and it was recording about 'your auto may still be eligible for warranty coverage" and i went "click....buzz".
I googled this # and got this board. Go Google!
99% sure it was telemarketer calling at 17:00. I did not answer. Did trace and it listed Gift, Inc using Vontage box. So there are mobile which may explain so why Tim thinks it was WA state orgin. Probably a virtual employee for some marketing company. There are lots of those around.
Caller ID showed Sloan, IA
Message left said they were an automobile extended warranty company by the name of Auto One.
Received a call from this number. No message was left on answering machine.
Got a message from this company. I called them back and got cut off.
this is the second message i am entering! see the first one was not applied to the page here! i am reporting this number as a call trace to local phone co! i pull out my phone on the second ring cause i did not wanna a message on answering machine! i screen my calls now many people use answering machines to screen their calls and then decide who they are going to answer back! this will end i am going to send an email to local phone co now!

They called at 9:34 a.m. EST. Left no message. Just trying to figure out who these people are.
called, didnt answer...no message
did not anwser it showed that it was from Sloan, IA
Received call from this number -- no message - when I called it back it was answered by an answering maching that said it was Gift Inc. and that I could add my number to a do not call list but then it hung up on me
Received a call. No message. I hate them. Leave me alone.
Ridiculous to recieve a call which claims to be from Iowa, but is in actuality, from WA state. Especially when one pays money to keep their number private and unpublished. Didn't answer-no message.
Me too..didn't answer, no message
Same here. Call at 19:00 EST. They left no message. I didn't answer it.
