I purchased a new truck a few months ago.
The phone rang today. The caller ID (useful in any parsonage) just says "Houston TX".
Computer Voice: The factory warranty on your new vehicle has expired. This is a courtesy call as a final warning that your new vehicle will no longer be covered by the factory warranty. If you would like to be removed from our notification list, press 2. If you would like to speak to a warranty representative, press 1.
Me: [Press 1, curious even though we have a signed warranty agreement from General Motors]
Customer Service Rep: Hello, I'm here to tell you information about extending the factory warranty on your new vehicle.
Me: What company are you with?
CSR: We're with AutoSolutions.
Me: I mean with what automaker.
CSR: We work with many companies.
Me: How do I know that you represent the company that sold me this vehicle?
CSR: Let me just transfer you to our warranty division.
CSR: First I need to verify some identifying information about yourself.
Me: Uh, no. I have no reason to believe that you represent the company that sold me this vehicle. I've received a number of scam warranty offers in the mail since I purchased this vehicle --
Me: Yes. So tell me the VIN of this vehicle that I purchased, and I'll know that you represent the company that sold me this vehicle.
CSR: I'll just go ahead and take you off our list.
Me: Ah, so it is a scam! I thought as much.
And then I hung up.
