I’ve recently received numerous unsolicited, automated phone calls (i.e., robocalls) to my cell phone from various numbers. Most commonly, these calls involve “last chance” offers for to purchase an extended warranty for my car.
Despite a good bit of digging, I haven’t been able to find a lot of information about these calls, but I have found a few things. It seems that these callers are hitting randomly generated phone numbers, and they’re totally disregarding the national “Do Not Call” list.
While some reports indicate that the callers fake their Caller ID info, I’ve called back a couple of numbers that I didn’t recognize, and I’ve actually gotten through to a recorded message pitching the car warranties every time I’ve tried. With that in mind, I thought I’d start building a list of the phone numbers from which these calls originate.
