If you get called for a warranty scam

by David Zatz on

A group insisting to be “Chrysler warranty services” is again calling owners with intent to scam, possibly using falsified caller ID numbers.


Customers buy extended warranties from dealers; Chrysler Service Contracts, which covers Ram, Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler, does not call customers to sell extended warranties.

The scammer sounds real, because the person claims to be calling from Chrysler (not Fiat Chrysler, so far) and knows what car you own and when you purchased it — abusing public records to get that data.

The only real recourse may be teasing the caller’s contact information from them, hanging up, and sending it to FCA US Legal in Auburn Hills — and, for users of the free nomorobo service, reporting the calls to them so they will be blacklisted.
