I get about 4-5 a week.

WARNING OUR RECORDS SHOW YOU HAVE NOT ACTIVATED YOUR EXTENDED WARRANTY
CALL NOW!

or

They look like a rebate check.

or

some other scummy way to get you to not immediately shred them.

Caveat emptor. If someone is foolish enough to fall for an extended warranty (along with a multitude of other scams) then they deserve to be parted from their money.

Personally I don't even open mail like that-it goes directly into the shredder.

I’ve been getting multiple calls on my cell phone about an extended warranty for my ten year old truck. I locked their number out.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

This...if you're that gullible. Cynicism has served me well into old age. When dimentia kicks in I intend to seal myself inside my house. Better than falling for this.

I get those calls a few times a month. If I'm in the mood I'll mess with the caller and ask how much it is on a vehicle with 300,000 miles. They usually hang up.

My mom would get them all the time for her 2003 Buick Rendezvous. We’d just laugh and laugh that the warranty company would be bankrupt by the time that car was fixed.
