scam alert

Just received a scam call on my cell phone (doubly-illegal) about a bogus car warranty. They made it sound urgent and as though I was at fault, provided no identifying information about themselves, and wanted me to provide information about myself which if they had been legit they would have already had. Furthermore, the only company I have a car warranty with is my car's dealer.

Discussing the scam

Posting this in case anyone experiences the same thing. It's definitely a scam.

Meanwhile, I've reported them to both the Do Not Call Registry and the Federal Trade Commission, since it's both a DNCR violation and a scam.

I've been a telemarketer and I know the law. Do not fuck with this bitch.
