This number contacted me on 07/06/2020 wanting to extend my auto warranty for a vehicle I’ve never owned. When I asked for a call back number the lady informed me she was calling from the computer. I also asked if this was a accredited company and she told me it was. I asked for a copy of my “file” she kept referencing to be mailed and she couldn’t provide me with that. She introduced herself as “Allie”

I just purchased a used vehicle and I am now getting 10 phone calls a day trying to sell me extended warranty. The offer sounds way way to good to be true. They try to force you into making a purchase right then and there, by saying if you hang up the offer wont be available if you call back. ( but then they call you 5 move times that day lol) I was concerned very early on during the call so I started asking what the name of there company was. First girl I talked to said "Vehicle Service Department" seemed kinda vague. Then they transferred me around to different girls and the last one I spoke with (who was ready to take my card info) I asked again. What is the name of your company? This one tells me "dealer services"…. "so what’s the card number". I laughed and asked for there phone number. She hung up on me at that point. So I just wanted to report here to hopefully help others from being scammed.

They called me claiming to be with the Vehicle Service Department, when I asked with which company they said just that. They asked repeatedly for the make and model of my car claiming something to do with the warranty on it. I kept getting disconnected as I asked more about the "company" so I couldn’t figure out much.

I believe they get your number from the dealer where you bought your car, and they focus on low maintenance vehicles. If you talk to them you will get several calls per day. They do not observe the do-not-call lists.

Anyone company which uses spoofed phone numbers is very likely a scam. They offer all kinds of sign-up benefits, free car repairs and free oil changes, and must employ desperate and destitute salesmen. Do not fall for it!

Unable to provide any other information about the company when asked. When the phone number is called back it is identified as a non working number.

I have received multiple calls from tjis warranty compay to extend a vehicle warranty on a vehicle i have never owned. When i question them on when i bought the vehicle they say they are not able to disclose that. I asked repeatedly for information which they would not provide. I asked to speak with someone in charge and it sounded like the person I was speaking with handed the phone to the person mext to her. She then claimed she was the supervisor. I tell them i never owned such vehicle and then they try to pry for information on cars i own. I told them not to call me again, as i knew it was a scam. These people are relentless. When i asked where they were calling from and they said they were calling from california i questioned why it was coming from a NY number and was told they use a computer system to get a better connection.

Individuals call, often with a name on the caller id so that you will answer. They ask for you by first and last name. They are aware of the type of vehicle I have and my Vehicle information. They say their calling from Vehicle Services and that is the name of the company. If you ask any questions such as

1) Who is your manager

2)what is the name of the company and where are you located

3)Who gave you my contact information I did not authorize this service

They will also hang up if you say the following:

1) please stop calling

2)What is your address

3) Im going to sue if you don’t stop

4)leave me alone

Often they will reply with nasty remarks if you say you will sue if they don’t stop such as:

1)You don’t have the money to sue us

2)Well we are gonna just keep calling so whatever

3)You called us back so your harassing us and we will sue you(missed this call so I called back and it was them)

I have received repeated calls on my cell phone from a variety of numbers, offering an extended service plan for our automobile. Each time the caller knew my name as well as the year and model of my wife’s car (but no other information) and said he was calling from the "Vehicle Service Department." All callers have been men; they are all fluent in English but have a noticeable Indian or Pakistani accent. When I ask for their company name, they repeat "It’s from the vehicle service department." If I ask again, "But which company?" or "Who do you work for?" they hang up.

On officiai-looking stationery the company claimed to my elderly mother that they were offering to replace factory coverage for a car no longer owned by my mother, misidentifying the make of car as well. They claimed damages in excess of $12,000 were done to the car, falsely itemized, and did not specify the cost of their "insurance" protection.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I received a "repair invoice" indicating that the factory warranty on my car would soon expire; and if I did not replace my coverage (activate my service contract), I would be financially liable for any and all repairs. At first, I thought the letter was from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles so I opened it right away, but then upon reading through it closely, I realized it was a fake invoice. It did not have a company address or hardly any information about my car, so I knew it had to be a scam. I did some research online and learned that other people were inquiring about a similar letter/invoice. Therefore, I’m attaching it so that others do not fall for this scam. It looks quite valid, but it is not!
