These calls to my cellphone (offering some kind of warranty, before my 'current one runs out'--which I never had in the fisrt place!), started shortly after I signed up with Progressive Auto Insurance. Could it be that Progressive sold my data to some fly-by-night marketing company?
Calling to sell me a "car warranty". I pushed 2 to talk to a person. Person answered asking me for the make and model year of my car. My response was to ask for a company name. The person then hung up.
Calling this number back gives you a refinancing (scam, likely) sales pitch, and no human.

Call 3 pm Jan 14/08 - I have been plagued by countless phone calls from a purported co that is selling a car warranty. They call every weekday and Sat (possibly some Sun). Often, they call multiple times in one day. Often, they call from a 352 area code, but, more often, they call from many different phone numbers. This is one of the numbers. Many times an apparently meaningless phrase or name is in the caller id. Always, always, it is a recording; I must press a number to speak to a person, and I must press one to, supposedly, be removed from their files. The fact that they call so many times in one day, in one week, over the course of many months or years, leads me to believe they are trying to coerce me to enter a number, and thus interact with them. What sort of detrimental effect will occur if I interact with them, and allow them to know my presence and whereabouts? Even if all they do is gain $ from my interaction, that is not what I want to cooperate with, and I don't want them selling my phone #. Can anyone offer suggestions as to how to penalize the persons responsible for this daily harrassment?
