So, how many of you have gotten that lovely call from an out-of-state number stating that your car warranty was about to expire?
Well just about everyone I know have gotten them on their cell phones and their house phones, the best part is that we are on the National 'Do Not Call List', which is the first strike against this "company", which of course is illegal. Second, this company does not actually sell car warranties, and when you ask them a certain kind of question, they will hang up on you, also when you ask to be taken off their calling list.

"Unfortunately, the calls are almost impossible to trace since the numbers are spoofed. One number being used was traced to a disconnected phone in Nebraska that had belonged to an illegal immigrant who had been deported after a meat-packing plant raid." (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/11/09/expired-car-warranty-calls-have-several-states-pissed-too/)

So has anyone else gotten these calls?
Heck I have even gotten one at work.

Sorta-related story: long time back my sister was listed in a Who's Who for high school students. Of course, Who's Who is a vanity publication, and thus I was naturally suspicious. I don't think she ever bought the book, though.

Anyway, not long after I receive a letter saying that, hey, I had been accepted into a Who's Who for sports! Wow!

The only problem-when do I ever play sports?

Heh, i've gotten it for my car ('09 Audi A4). The problem here is that I got the car 4 weeks ago so there's no way in hell it could be up. I got another one on my cell this morning before school strangely enough. I told him that (Read in a heavy Southern Arkansas hick accent) "Warranty's are for pussies, and I don't need no fricken warranty when all I do is cook mah chikin on tha engine." He tried to talk me into it until I told him that "My wife's gonna give birth to our 13th child; I gots to go rip the thing outta her blowhole and put it with all the others in the shed out back." After that I had my GF scream from down the hall about how she was gonna gut me for knocking her up again.

In short, I highly advise you just treat it like some guy is trying to sell you a dog turd as chocolate and just screw with them until they give up.

Next one i'm planning on pretending to be a sperm bank and ask the guy for donations.

Yeah me and my boyfriend were planning on screwing around with these guys, but they call like when we are at the movies, when I am in school, when I'm at work, etc.
I usually don't get a person though, just a machine.
Plus I've been getting these calls before I got a car, maybe they were talking about my barbie jeep?
And a reply to Helldragon, I got a letter in the mail for some student honor thing for my "excellence in school."
I'm in one honors class (honors anatomy), and my accumulative GPA is a 3.0 (haha last year screwed me up because I didn't care).
It was rather humorous, I'm number 99/181 in my class.

My dad has gotten one such call. He just hung up and swore a bit.

"I worship the supreme comrade Cossack!"

No such thing here. The classic I usually get is "Congratulations!! You've won a free trip to the caribeans!"

The catch is, there's about no reason why a telemarketing agency would call us here... in English. On the upside, I know that I can hang up very quickly!

After a series of questions and lies, she hanged up one me.

I have never gotten one of those calls but if i do I'll do what I always do and ask them random questions.

I think the weirdst call I have ever gotten from one of them was a women asking me if I would like to invest in someguy who makes pens.
