How to Steer Clear of Auto Warranty Scams
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, urges you
to be skeptical of mail and phone calls warning that the warranty on your car is about to expire.
The companies behind the mail and calls may give the impression they represent your car dealer
or manufacturer. With phrases like Motor Vehicle Notification, Final Warranty Notice or Notice of
Interruption, they are trying to make the offer seem urgent — and to get you to call a toll-free number
for more information.
