Don’t Get Caught in an Auto Warranty Scam

Another phone call, another scam. It’s not just you, those robocalls just won’t stop! More than just an annoyance, scam calls cost 56 million Americans a financial loss in 2020.

One of the most common scams over the phone is the auto warranty scam.  Here’s all you need to know about it:

How the scam plays out

In this ruse, scammers posing as representatives of a car dealership or manufacturer call to tell you that your auto warranty is about to expire. The scammer then goes into a pitch for renewing your warranty. During the call, you may be prompted to press a number to stay on the line, and then you’re asked to provide personal information to continue the process of renewing your warranty. If you follow instructions, you’ll be playing right into a scam.

How to spot a scam

Look out for these red flags:

  • Hello, it’s Mr. Robot calling. When it’s a robocall on the line, you’re almost certainly talking to a scammer.
  • Feel the pressure? Scammers notoriously lead victims to act first and think later by claiming their offer is available for a limited time only.
  • Just a small fee … Is the caller demanding a small processing fee before supplying you with real details and information on the plan? If yes, you’re being scammed.

Protect yourself

Some things in life are not meant to be shared, especially your private information. Never share your Social Security number, credit card information or checking account details with an unverified caller.

It’s instinct to grab the phone when it rings, but hold off just a moment. First, check the Caller ID. Legitimate telemarketers are required to display their phone number and the name/or phone number of the company they represent. If this information is missing, you’re being phone-tagged by a scammer.

Don’t let an authentic-looking Caller ID fool you, though. Scammers often spoof numbers to make it appear as if they are calling from a legitimate company. If you suspect spoofing, ignore the call, and then call the number of the company that allegedly reached out to you, to ask about the call.

If those robocalls are not letting up, you can always block the number on your phone. That’ll show those scammers!

Stay safe!
