Did You Receive an Phone Call From A Number You Don't Recofnize, Asking About Your Car or Truck Warranty? It IS a Scam

Have You Received a Scam or Unexpected Phone Call?

Did you receive an unexpected phone call from an unknown source? Was the caller abusive, pushy or asking for confidential information, like your social security number or driver's license number? Did the caller ignore your questions, but start asking you about your car or truck, and talking about a warranty expiring? Or maybe they started telling you your house can be refinanced.  Scammers are not just busy on the internet, they are burning up the phone lines in attempts to scam people.
