Car extended warranty robocalls are not the only ones plaguing our mobile devices, but they can be some of the more dangerous ones. At times it can be difficult to know if this call is a scam or a real call. Sometimes there will be information about your car, which can lead you to think it may be legit.
If you do happen to own a vehicle, chances are you’re getting bombarded with robocalls about your auto warranty. The car warranty scam has been around for years. Consumers continue to fall prey to these unwarranted robocalls.
These calls generally all follow a similar format, often starting out as an automated or prerecorded message telling you that your auto warranty or is about to expire. Usually, these calls come from someone posing as a representative of your car dealership, manufacturer, or insurer. They might even have some information about your car, such as the vehicle year, make, or model.
Protection Against These Calls
Whether the call pertains to an extended warranty or something else entirely, federal law provides strong protections for consumers against unsolicited robocalls. These calls provide seemingly never-ending invasions of your privacy. The relevant federal statute is called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
For each violation of the TCPA, the caller is liable for a statutory penalty of $500.00. Importantly, if it is found that the caller knowingly violated the TCPA by making the robocalls, they can be liable for up to $1,500.00 per violation.
