Ernest has been getting a number of recorded phone calls: "Your car warranty is about to expire. This is your final warning." Except? Hello? He's TWELVE years old. He can't even drive yet.
He always hangs up on them, but today he handed the phone to me and I got through to a live person in just a few minutes. That's surprising (considering how long Frank and I have spent on the phone with Dell lately, but that's another story). So I told the person how these calls were going to a twelve year old and he put the phone number on a do-not-call list. Which reminded me that I hadn't put this phone number on the national do-not-call registry, so I did.
But wait, there's more. I got this in the mail a couple days ago. I wish I could get that to appear larger. It's completely vague with no reference to any specific car. Now, which of our cars is out of warranty on 1/31/2009? NONE OF THEM! So what kind of scam is this?
Maybe they can get some money from Nigeria instead of from me.
