Just got this one a couple minutes ago. Didn't pick up the phone because I didn't recognize the number. If I don't know you, I'm not picking up the damn phone and wasting my airtime minutes on you.

Also, Reverse lookup shows this as an unpublished number from the Chicago area. I don't know anyone in Chicago so I'm REALLY not picking up. More than likely given other scams exposed on here, it probably some poor saps number getting spoofed.

It sounds like a car warranty scam similar to others making the rounds...
This is a supposed company, trying to sell an extended warranty for your car. We my car has a over 156K miles on it. After 'talking to his supervisor' I was told that Eric could give me an extended warranty for my 13 year old car. Everything sounded fishy. They kept pressuring me into paying a down payment of $395. with payments of $138/month. This is with a '20 discount'. When I was hesitant to signup he asked if the down payment was the problem, I said yes. He tranferred me to a 'finance manager' who told me to cross out what I had written down for payments. Then he offered me the 'employee price' with a down payment of 1/2 (I guess he thought $195 was half of $295). So with a down payment of $195 and monthly payments of $91.37 for 2 years I would have a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty. It still sounded fishy so I asked if I could have a phone number and call them back. They said they won't do that. I need to make a decision before hanging up the phone. I said I wanted to research their 'company' and he said I would have to keep him on the phone. So I did and I found a lot of complaints about this place.
Phone Scam....call everyday, just dont answer
Call's on cell phone - don't pick up or answer and hang up
just got a call from two different numbers ... this one and the (303) area code one this is annoying! someone please stop them!
I keep getting a call on my cell from 773-249-5007 with a recorded message about the warranty on my car. My warranty is thru Toyota, not a outside party. Wish they would quit calling!
report the idiots i did
i get these calls all the time and one time i asked which car and they hung up on me.. we have 2 brand new cars and they are underwarrenty,, im sick of getting these calls from them.. plus we have a non published phone number. one time i got one and it said that my mercedes warranty was almost up.. i dont have a mercedes.. quit bugging people.. scammers
Thanks to those reporting, I knew not to answer.
I just got a call on my cell from them. They left a message. It's a recorded telemarketing call for auto warranty.
Ten in the last month
Here are the car insurance spammers from the last month, at least on my phone:
1-773-249-5007 (half hour ago)
program it in as spam
If they keep calling, program the number into your phone as spam, and assign a silent/no-ring tone to the number. At least you'll have some peace while they call till the cows come home.
I did not answer they keep calling ....Car warranty recording
I'm beginning to suspect it's a ploy by cell providers to eat away at your minutes. Somebody should investigate.
It's a car warranty scpam. I've been getting these calls from different numbers for the past few weeks, Like clock work they call in the afternoon. There is nothing anyone can do; these outfits do not respect the national do not call list and constantly change the phone numbers. Simply put these are scams.
Just got called. Nobody responded on the other side, though.
Calls several times a day to a work number - recording stating car warranty ready to expire and then they put you on hold.
car warrently scam
Yeah just got a call from that number right now, was car warranty place from Chicago. Really pisses me off how they get are number!
Called my tracfone. i hate that crap cuz i pay for my minutes and they use them up. i didn't answer but i am tired of them calling my tracfone all the time!!!!!!
continue to get calls from these "car warranty" numbers so annoying!
Called my cell, did not leave message.
7732495007 - got a missed call from this number. Looks like the same warranty scam going on. Don't know who should take care of these "voice scams". Another similar one is 203-637-4783 (caller id shows it as R B Pidgeon).
I got the call too! it is a car warranty scam, I even received something in the MAIL saying that my car warranty is expiring. It's all bullsh*t.
