Breathing and then silent
Basically the same as others have stated. It claims my car is out of warranty. When I tried to call it back, it states the number has been disconnected.
I WILL ASK MY FATHER TO COME HERE TO HELP ME TO LEAVE!!!I TRUST IN HIM, HE WILL BE NEXT TO ME FOREVER!!! HE GETS DONE ALL MY REQUEST!!!!! I WILL NEVER DISAPPOINT IN HIM, BUT I CANNOT LIVE WITH MY FATHER!!!HE LOVES SO MUCH, THAT'S WHY HE REMAINED SO FAR ALWAYS FROM MY RELATIONSHIPS, BECAUSE HE KNOWS OUR TIE IS SO STRONG. HE WANTS TO LIVE MY LIFE ON MY OWN!
Your Warranty has expired telemartker has continued to call not only my personal phone, but work lines as well. Interesting enough, I work for a telecommunications line and will be submitting their lines for termination due to abuse.
vehicle extended warranty scam
Called on 7/10.Left no message.
Telemarketing call to cellphone
This caller id number was for received autodialer call received on MY CELLPHONE for "This is the final notice before your vehicle warranty expires..blah blah blah..." Don't need or want this type of baloney.
Call comes to my cell. Returning the call now connects to a pre-recorded phone company "number no longer in service" message.
I dont' know this number and who's calling, but I have got a few of these calls from different new numbers since i got this phone from T-mobile, including
they have a new number now
Here are the details of these ****: Car Warranty Scam: VP Marketing 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite #A-1225 Atlanta GA 30339 Credit Card Scam: Versadebt Corp. 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite #A-1225 Atlanta GA 30339 To the best of my knowledge, their phone number is
there must be a circle jerk of these callers from auto solutions, auto warranty, other "auto" BS. i haven't owned a vehicle in years. i have a prepaid cell phone FOR EMERGENCY USE ONLY. i am REALLY PO at these solicitations using up my phone mins.!!!!!!!!!!!!
continues to call about auto warrantee renewal. Not interested.
Continued calls with no voicemail and you cannot call back (number not in service)
I received another call from the same company. This time they used
I got called twice but didn't answer. Don't know how my phone got on the list.
Pretty sure the this caller id number was spoofed but received autodialer call on MY CELLPHONE for "This is the final notice before your vehicle warranty expires..blah blah blah..." Pressed one to speak to "Cody" and demanded to speak to manager who was conventiently out of town and Cody was "manager on floor" Instructed him to NOT CALL THIS NUMBER AGAIN but still receiving phone calls from same Company.
Got this call a few days ago from Vermont. I Did not answer the call. I googled the number and it brought me here- seems to be on a long list of numbers with this area code (check it by typing the number into google). Just called it and it is 'out of service'
I'll send letters as well. It might annoy his neighbors to be be flush with so many letters that they will go knock on his door to stop his scam.
I've googled his address. It's a nice house in a nice area. I'm sending letters to everyone on his street so they all know what kind of sleeze lives next door. Hope he enjoys the stares.
They kept calling me on my cell phone; I changed the number, they are now calling again! According to 411.com the number is "owned" by: Preston Picardi, 99 N. Willard Street, Burlington, VT 05401-3316. I don't have Esurance and my warranty does not expire for another 2 1/2 years!
Bilge scum called my prey pay Cell phone
Calling me litterally 8 times a day. The two times I was able to get to a warm body told them to stop calling me and remove me from list. They said they would but the calls keep comming.
Caller ID has also said 234567891, 702-399-5868802-651-6889, etc.
I got the call on my temporary cell phone on 07/10/08 - The only company I had given that number to was Esurance, to get a price quote on car insurance. my guess is that Esurance sells the numbers to this company.
Missed call on my cell phone, traces back to a number in Vermont. After reading some of the other complaints I figured it could be related to the fact that the Warranty on my 2001 BMW 500i ran out. If you receive this call please note what model car you have and the warranty status for comparison purposes. It will help to track down who sold our personal information with or without our consent. There are several websites for "auto solutions" on Google. One of them happens to be "autosolutions.net performance accessories for BMW's". Is this just coincidence? The others deal with auto warranties.
Received this number as a missed call on my cell phone. I didn't recognize the number and did a reverse look up on bigyellow.com. The number (that could be spoofed)is owned by a Preston Picardi in Burlington, VT. If this person/business contacts me again I will attempt to get an address where I can mail a notarized cease communications letter via certified mail. If they contact me after the letter has been received, other than to tell me that they received my letter, I will sue them up to $1000.00 per incident.
called @6:15pm PDT on my AT&T cell, that I've had only 3 weeks. (the number is new and not "recycled") I missed the call but the "caller" did not leave a message on my VM. Attempts to return only give me number has been disconnected msg. This is the second one of these I've gotten from Vermont in 2 weeks. These crooks need to be tracked down and locked away where the don't shine!!!
dont call me if i want something i can call you.
Unknown caller - recording - telling me that I had won Directv and a TV
Thanks for the heads up people! I just received a call from the same number and decided to Google it as well and found this site. Didn't know the number, so I didn't answer... I guess I'll add it to my blocked calls list :-)
Auto Warranty scam. The boiler room worker claimed to be in AZ despite the phone number.
Calling me regarding an auto warranty scam numbers times. attempts to call the number back fail with a number not in service error.
I have received numerous calls from this number to my cell phone. attempts to call the phone back gives me a phone out of service error.
These people have been harrasing me and my wife weekly over the last six months. One time (two days ago) I told them off and asked them too lose my number. Joke's on me, must be why they called again today. My cell phone company(nextel(I wonder if this is a coincidence)) told me to call
Calls my cel phone at least once a day. Never leaves a message
These guys call me to renew a warranty on a car I bought 3 years ago that had NO warranty when I bought it. What can I do to make them stop calling me??
These guys call me to renew my warranty on a used car I boutgh a year ago that had NO warranty when I bought it. They need to stop calling me.
If you don't recognize the number don't answer it. It will eventually go away.
I think they also call from
called me around noon, 7/11/08, EST. Didn't leave a message, but googled the number out of curiosity. Annoying.
annoying calls generated by someone who needs to be in prison.
Received call a little before 3 pm. I think i've been here before. Maybe a
weird number that's calling me
Begins with "let me get right to ... " at which point I hung up. I PAY for an unlisted/unpublished phone number! Guess the joke's on me, cause these annoying peddler-calls just keep on coming!
Called my cell on 7-11-08 no message, return calls lead to either a disconnect message or an all circuits busy loop. I believe we have all visited a common website and have listed the number called on an application or account submission. We need to try to pinpoint just which site is being hacked for/leaking info to this company....reverse lookup revealed the same info as a previous post concerning Preston Picardi and an address in Burlington,VT.According to a google search Preston Picardi is a writer and has numerous published articles. One of his articles, under my own assumption, has upset someone in a position to need a phone and to hide their number and this guise has been used in retaliation. If you're sick of this call, I recomend listing your 3 most visited sites the 2 days prior to the call. I know I'm tired of them....my last 3 were`YOU TUBE,MYSPACE,and GOOGLE. There are enough of us here to figure this out.
Calling my Cellphone. I thought they were not supposed to call cellphone numbers period.
I won't waste my minutes answering or checking voicemail.
What the hell?? This number is crazy. I just recieved this call Today Friday July 11th at 2:46pm. I didn't pick it up and I was wondering where the hell is 802? Looked on google and here I am. I see that I am not alone in my frustration. If this continues I am writing to someone about it!! I have T-mobile and I don't think it has anything to do with the type of service provider you have. Crazy....
I may have a number from Georgia but I currently reside in California. I got the call at 8:09AM PST. I don't know why they're calling me or how they got my number, but this needs to STOP.
I get a call from this number 2-3 times a week on my cell phone about car warranty crap.
second reminder about car warrant = nonesense i diont even have a car
I get a phone call on my cell from this number once per week. It is an automated warranty crap that I have no knowledge of.
This machine calls my cell phone. I have no idea how they got my cell number.
This is not telemarketing. But is some sort of scam. Obviously, the federal government is not to concerned about the welfare of its citizens. If this problem persists(scamming calls from bogus numbers) mabye we should rally together to MAKE the government address the problem. This is a crime.
I have told them not to call or else I will file a complaint. They still keep calling
Have called me numerous times using a machine. Have never dealt with this company before, Continental Warranty sold them my information.
Just as the people below have said, they call at least 3 times a week and never leave a message. I've never answered my phone when they call but if they are an auto company I don't know what listing they get my number from because I don't have a car.
They keep calling and never leave a message.
Unsolicited call that I dont pick up
Receive calls about every other week about my auto warranty expiring. Dial two to get off the list or 1 to talk to a person. Either way you're screwed.

Just an unsolicited call that I didn't answer. Based in Vermont from what I can tell. Complete B.S. They need to stop calling.
recieved 2 calls this morning on my cell phone. My wife received a call this morning on her cell. I receive 1 call per week from these annoying people. Just like everyone else, I attempt to remove my number but they hang up. These people deserve jail time for all of this harassment.
unsolicited automatic call about car warranty
Calls and hangs up on me repetatively. It's quite annoying. I try to call the number back but get no ring or connection.
I didn't answer my cell. it doesn't look like they left a message though. Maybe next time I will tell them I'm interested in what they're selling just to say, "PSYCH!" at the end and hang up on them.
Calling on my cell phone, which is on the DNC list! Why all these sleazy auto warranty calls on cell phones? Put your cell number on donotcall.gov and then nail them when they call you.

They will not stop calling. They call me every 3-4 days and I've pressed the number to be removed and even spoken to 3 people requesting to be removed. I asked for a supervisor once to which the woman responded "I am the manager"...I laughed. They will not stop calling.
stop calling, you bastard .!!!

CALLED on Cell phone number. Costing minutes.
Constant calls form 802 #'s
Grrrrrr...Very few people know my number. This guy must have an autodialer, hoping that someone actually answers. I don't. I check the number first. Still,, this is very disturbing..
continuely receiving calls about last or 2nd notice about expiring auto warrenty, need this to stop immediately, don't want to be solicited in any way.
This is crazy wtf this is the worst i wonder how the hell they got my number!!!!!
Advised them to stop calling and place me on their company "do not call" list on 7/3/08 and again on 7/10/08. Yet they called again 7/11/08. This is a violation of federal do not call & I'm currently checking FCC for complaint process.
Called my cell phone...said they were American Warranty and that the warranty on my car had expired. They wanted to know my make model year of vehicle. When I told them my warranty was through my dealership, he hung up on me.
The Called on my cell phone to tell me my factory auto warranty is about to expire. (I don't own any cars under warranty)
states he is calling because of my auto warrenty is about to expire, asked to stop calling. Told him if he called again I would press charges against him/company and he claims that several have tried and his company always wins.
They called me on my cell phone - which is on the do-not-call list.
Keeps calling my cell phone!
Unknown, unwanted calls, without a way to call back.
Won't stop calling get one a day at least.
Been called multiple times on my cell.
These people keep calling my cell phone and trying to sell me auto insurance.
I have asked them to stop calling but they don't.
I've noticed a few missed calls from this number & when I tried calling it back a recording told me all circuits were busy & to try my call again later. Based on the number of complaints I've seen posted about the reverse lookup of this number, something's just not right about this!
This tellemarker has been calling my cell phone several time for the last few weeks. I told the operator that I did not interested in buying auto factory warrenty and asked him put my phone on NO CALL list. However, I still received their phone calls every day.
will not stop calling, asked to be taken off call list and was cursed at then hung up on, called back 2 hrs later, hit one to talk to rep, they just let it ring...noone picked up.
Got a call on my cell with a recording telling me that my vehicle warning was about to expire and to press 1 to speak to a specialist. I pressed 1 and when a man answered I asked how he got my number and he hung up on me. I have a lifetime warranty on my vehicle, so I'd like to know where they got their information. I googled the number and it came up as belonging to Preston Picardi in Burlington, VT. When I tried to call the number I got a recording that it was not in service at this time.
I got a call from this numbr on my cell phone this morning and this is the second call I got from this number. Sick of getting these types of calls on my cell phone.
I've gotten three calls from these guys. Recorded message about auto warranty. This is some real schmucky stuff.
I have missed calls from this number numerous times. I finally looked it up in reverse search and it came up as 'Preston Picardi' in Burlington VT. Not sure what this is, but from what I see here it must be a telemarketer or scam of some sort.
Repeated calls. Recorded voice message about imminent lapse of extended warranty for vehicle if you don't call now, or some such tripe.
I called number given once to request mine be removed. I was assured it would be. It was not.
I, too, got some automated message about warranty coverage. I almost never answer my cel phone when the number isn't in my phonebook, but i have some friends in Vermont and had emailed one of them just the other day... i suspected (wrongly) that they might have been calling me.
I tried to Google the number as the automated message played, but by the time i saw what it was, the message had ended and my attempts to "press one to speak with someone" failed.
When i tried calling back, i only heard an automated voice describing
an error "message 12-1-6-3"
I have received multiple calls from this number about auto warranty.
at night and i dont pick up
Cell phone rand and when I saw the area code, I dod not pick up. No message left, just "call missed" notice on phone.
I have learned that if the call is from an area code that I do not recognize, I do not pick up. Doesn't stop the annoyance, but makes it less bearable.
I got a call from this #, but I did not take the call....
someone called both my cell and my wife's cell in one hour!
Keeps calling without message.
Bugs me daily about buying an extended warranty program for my vehicle....
Trying to sell extended warranty coverage on a vehicle. Automated call did not realize it was talking to voicemail.
got a call from this number on my mobile.. just ignored it.. SOSDD. wondering why I need a phone.
not sure who it is
Just called and judging from the earlier comments - it's a bot dialer.
They are calling me on my cell-phone.
This number continues to call my cell phone
un necessary calling
These worms have called our prepaid cellphone 3 times now, costing us money. I agree that Mr. Picardi's former number is being used by these people, as I tried calling it back, and a recording said the number is no longer in service. How do we stop this?
Ah ha! This is the company that keeps calling me about "...your warranty on your vehicle is about to expire!" BS! Because I have a 5 year 50,000 warranty on a Toyota that only is a year old and has 12,000 miles. It's TELEMARKETER BS!
will not take return calls. False? Telemarketer?
They Called before and again normally my phone is used for emergency calls so I get irritated when its not one.
My guess is that the caller ID number is being "spoofed" There are websites on the internet that will dial a number and provide any number you want for the caller ID. They could make the call look like it came from the White House. I am not sure how this can be stopped, but it **** me off. They called me about the warranty, but I just hung up immediately. Remember folks, they are probably just dialing every number in an extension. I guess if they just start dialing numbers, they are bound to find some suckers to give them money.
Called my Verizon cell phone twice. Received the voicemail after I returned from out of the country and had my phone off. Heard "your car, press 2...". Apparently system has bad voice recognition when setup to play in response to human voice. Did not answer 2nd call...
called on my cell. no message left
Received a phone call on my cell phone. Individual did not leave a voicemail.
Calledmy cell phone The display showed Vermont. I don't know anyone in VT.
they are calling saying the warranty is up on my car
Asked me if I wanted to renew warranty on my car. Scammer.
I just received same call. Not first time. Just input Reject so hopefully never receive again.
Getting many calls from this number. Google shows it to belong to a Preston Picardi (802) 651-6889 99 N Willard St, Burlington, VT 05401
I sent the below email to Verizon on this matter. I would recommend others do the same.
I am receiving harrassing phone calls from one of your Verizon subscribers. It appears the subscriber is using his phone in a telemarketing/scam capacity. Complaints can be found on multiple websites regarding fraud calls received from this number.
I have noted these websites to flood your company with calls and complaints until this subscriber either stops or your company ceases the subscribers destructive behavior.
called personal cell phone after 6:45 PM
called work cell phone after 5 PM
Unwanted call on my cell phone.
This isn't the first time it happens to me.
The first time i answered the call and got the message but just ignored it.
I mean, c'mon....i don't even know anybody out of state!
Called twice and hung up at voicemail message. I called back, by recording says number is disconnected with no information available.
I have received many many calls from this number to my cell phone. I want it to stop.
My wife has been recieving calls on her cell phone from 802-651-6889. The computer recording says to press 2 to renew an expiring warranty on your automobile. I have tried to get the company name out of every "rep" I talked to, but they hang up on me.
I did find out that the number is registered to Preston Picardi at this address:
99 N Willard St
Burlington, VT 05401-3316
A Preston Picardi also shows up on LinkedIn, FaceBook, and as a character in the 2006 movie "Dirtbags".
I hope Mr. Picardi (or whatever his real name is) reads this site because I am filing a complaint with the Texas State Attorny General, Greg Abbott as well as the FTC, and I want him to know that.
Mr. Picardi, the Federal Trade Commission is cracking down on tlephone fraud this year in case you have not heard. Read this article here:
And I am going to help them investigate you!
Have received no less than 30 calls from these idiots. When I do answer I press the number to be removed, but they call again and again. I have even talked with an operator, and when asked to be removed he was extremely rude and hung up on me. Yet they are still calling!!! They either call from a 702 area code or the number listed here!
Same as everyone else and also get different numbers when they call. I am curious what cell phone carrier everyone is using? Perhaps that is how the cell numbers are getting circulated.
They called my mobile phone, and I am a minor. first, they shoud not be calling a minor's number to begin with, much less my cellular phone, long distance.
A recorded message says that your auto warranty has expired or is about to expire. You're directed to press 1 for a CSR or 9 to be removed from list. I've pressed 9 but all that does is to disconnect the call. I have pressed 1 and gotten a person but he hangs up on me when I tell him I want calls to stop and I'm even polite! Attempts to call the number showing up on caller id won't go through. Next time I will just press 1 and start cussing them out without explanation. At least I will be able to vent!
Got two calls from this number on my cell phone...didn't answer. Returned the call...got all circuits are busy. My wife received three calls from this number today!!! All on our cell phones! Did reverse phone lookup, and the number is a VT number for a Preston Picardi. Who is Preston Picardi you ask? Why he is the name of a character from a 2006 movie called, get this, Dirtbags. How appropriate. I'm filing an FCC Complaint.
oh well... I guess a lot of us have same problem. Also I had same scam on a mail (few times), saying something about second nitice and I am sure that nothing realy expires. By the way there was no back address on a notice, just some silly discount number and Internet address or whatever. What wasn't cool, that there were some information about my car, even a VIN number. I didn't compare it with mine (shredded this trash right a way), but possibly it was same one. I am doubting that this information was got in wrong hands some way. May be social engineering (another type of scam)... Somebody selling our personal info? Did we lost our sensitive data? I guess we will not find out and thats suck!
Soon this number going to be changed (if they dont want to get busted) and other people will get same scam, or probably something else.
If you want to know about diffirent scam you should type in google "Verizon Fraud and Scam Alerts" good(don't give you link, looks spamy =))
Strange call from phone number listed: 802-651-6889, under name Picardi, Preston. Called number back to find it had been disconnected 2 mins. later.
Got a missed call from them.
stop calling me
I left a message earlier here about my case, I followed through calling my satellite provider (which I have been a loyal and happy customer for 6 years or so) and they were very helpful in investigating but could come up with no leads. I don't even have access to cable in my neighborhood or have my cell listed anywhere. I therefore just left a complaint with the FCC.
Unsolicited call made to my cell phone! Not selling car warranties, though. Wants me to switch my cable? TV provider.
A call to 802-651-6889 gets me a recorded message, "All circuits are busy. Please call again later".
Is a number from Burlington,VT., according to Google.
This number does not belong to Preston Picardi! They got the name from a wedding announcement online. Think about it and hope no angry idiot goes to the listed address and blames Mr Picardi for this. These guys are scammers and are breaking several federal laws. Do you actually think they gave out their real name?
Just some boiler-room sweatshop with a Demon dialer. The feds will get them if everyone files complaints with the FCC. Google: FCC complaint form
These scumbags call people who have listed cars for sale on www.autotrader.com DO NOT waste your time/money dealing with them!!! Most likely a scam!!
Calling my Cell Phone!!!
Got a missed call from this phone number. Don't know anyone in VT.
I didn't recognize the number so I let it ring through to my voicemail. Checked my voicemail and heard the tail end of an automated message mentioning something about "your vehicle" and pressing 2 for more information. Not cool. I don't have time for this crap.
Received a call from this number twice today on a BRAND NEW CELLPHONE
Turn them in to the FCC! Cut and paste the link. Takes less than 5 minutes to fill out the form This is illegal if these calls came to a cell phone! I got 3 calls from this number. They hang up on you if you ask questions so they know this isn't OK. Stop the calls!!!
Received a call from this number on my day during the day then on my home phone later that evening. Both are non published/unlisted numbers.
Automated tele-marketer keeps calling to extend my insurance coverage, even though this is not my provider. Scam.
last chance to buy insurance to protect against repair costs.
Keeps calling me about a warrenty expiring
called did not leave message
I get these calls several times a week regarding a final notice on warranty expiring for a vehicle.
What action can I take to stop these annoying calls? What about a class action suit to recover all the lost cellphone minutes?
Phone spamming c*suckers
Call was initially a recorded message. I waited and a person (male) came on the line and said something similar. I asked what company they were representing and they hung up or the call disconnected. I have received two other calls from them me on my cell phone I use mostly for work and very selectively. I work nights so this is akin to calling at 3am. I am on the "do not call" lists and everyone I know understands what times to call me. My main complaint is ANY cold calling sales-related call on minutes I pay for. My first response will be angry. This is the third call I'm aware of so imagine my mood now!
Number reverses to Mr Preston Picardi of Burlington VT and is obviously a sales concern of dubious origin/quality since they have incoming calls disabled. There is a Preston Picardi in the Burlinbgton area but I have no reason to believe he is involved even slightly. More likely is also victim of whatever scam being floated.
Be clear though. The real enemy is not the caller but the person who pays them to make the calls knowing full well that this is a quasi-legal and extremely annoying method of forcing yourself on people. I wish telemarketing and spam were illegal
Trying to sell me warranty for my vehicle.
These calls are very annoying. It's an automated message. I've received the same call from different numbers. I want this to stop. I have no idea how they received my phone number.
calls several times a day
Unknown and unsolicited caller.
They called my work cell, how they have the number I have no idea as this is a very limited number. I answered it and received an automated message about about switching to satellite TV (which I have already had for 6 years. I just wanted to talk to a rep. to figure how they had my number. A woman picked up after being put on hold for about a minute or so. She immediately just asked for my address with no greeting but I refused; I was polite in asking about removing my number but she immediately SNAPPED at me saying it was just her job and hung up on me!!! I normally would let this go but because she was so rude, I'm filing a FCC complaint!
This is my second call... haven't picked up either. First a week ago they left a voicemail something about my car warranty??? (my cars new and i have everything needed for it...i called my dad he had no idea what they were talking about, even checked with my insurance) Second call was just now at 6:13... I called back and it said all circuits for the number were busy.
people are so annoying.
Unsolicited commercial phone calls to my cellphone
Same crap everyone else is getting about an expired warranty...except this call came in on my company-issued Cingular corporate celphone. One more call and I'll let our legal department take over.
i actually just filed a complaint with the fcc against them. calling a cell is strictly prohibited by the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, look under Other important provisions of the TCPA include: at http://www.the-dma.org/guidelines/tcpa.shtml
I have received repeated calls to my work cell phone. I am a school nurse and my line needs to be open for student emergencies.
JUST RECVD CALL ON MY CELL PHONE, GOOGLED AND BASICALLY HAD SAME EXPERIENCE AS THOSE LISTED BELOW. DIDN'T ANSWER
Random dialing idiots
How did this @@##er found my home number???this is a new UNLISTED number for obvious reasons!!!!
Yup! I just got this call as well
Got a call from (802)651-6889 today. Did not answer but attempted a callback. Got an automated message saying this number is "not connected." Did a reverse lookup on google and came across a person in VT, and this site. It appears I am not alone by having been called by whomever this happens to be...
they don't take you off of after asking
Cell phone rang. Didn't pick it up. When I did call it back, it was not a legal number even though I used the call-back function.
I'm getting annoying calls on my work cell phone now, so just registered the number on the no-call list. This number googles as:
99 N Willard St, Burlington, VT 05401
I don't know anyone in Burlington, VT, much less a Preston Picardi
I believe I've rec'd calls on my home phone in the past from this same source
It keeps calling my cell phone. I though cell phones were off limits of marketeers!!!
telemarketer calling to 'extend' factory warranty.
Is apparently a boiler room.
Keeps calling and not leaving a message or the call is an automated message
stop calling me, I don't know you.
First call = left message about my supposed warranty expiration-
Now just calls and doesn't leave a message-
Missed call at 6:18 PM Eastern
called my cell a fwe minutes ago, i did not pick up... shame on you Preston Picardi!
Called my CELL PHONE to sell me extended warranty coverage on "my automobile". The call was a calling machine. Transfer to a person was not answered. It says above tthe carrier is Verizon New England. Their phone number is 800-641-2299. The President is Kenneth Dixon. I will be calling him to complain.
Received on my cell phone a call from unknown number. I didn't answer, because the phone is brand new and I know nobody has the number.
Unsolicited calls from a voice automated system with phone number 802 651 6889 to my cell phone.
They are pretending to sell extended warranty, when I am driving a 2006 Maxima. Wassup with this scam?
Has called on work phone & cell phone. Very annoying
A recored messege calls my home every day. I want it to stop immediately.
These people that represent whatever this company is, called and threaten me to shut something down that i have no clue.
And they have the nerve to tell me that i am wasting their time when i was trying for figure out what they wanted.
Called my cell phone number. Call was unsolicited. I refused call.
some kind of scam about selling me an extended warranty when they don't even know what I'm driving.
Total jerks - said very rude things to me when I asked to go on Do Not Call list.
Called my cell and after a period of dead a recorded telemarketing message began. I think it was about extended warranty coverage on "my automobile", but I hung up. Every time these jerks call, I have to pay for the call.
I actually told them to not call me ever again, and they called on my cell phone again. I wish to press charges.
who is this caller?
Message about vehicle warranty running out, press "1". Operator who answered didn't know what vehicle and want to know if I had any between 2000 and 2007. When I said I had three, she asked for details. She hung up when I asked how they could be calling about a final warning if they didn't even know who I was or my vehicle. I tried calling back from a landline but couldn't get through.
Have been called by these ****ers a few times now. I only got to answer it once, just now... was on hold for a few minutes (eating up my Net10 time, thanks a bunch) so I looked up the number on Google and found this page. Thanks everyone for identifying these @$$holes, now I can file a complaint.
Just received a call from this number on my cell.
I have a local cell carrier so I don't think it's Verizon selling your number, larry.
No caller response. Just dead air. They call with regularity 2 times a month.
Receive 802-651-6889 as a missed call, no message...
This company is calling my cell phone soliciting vacation trip sales.. They are sucking up my cell minutes. If you can identify them please let me know so I can send them a bill for my minutes.

I just filed another complaint with the VT A.G.'s office, and the CA AG's office and the FTC. I don't know if it will do any good, but it sure feels better.
Also, the FTC specifically has a form for these "auto warranty" aholes.

Calls about every 3-4 days saying this is the "final notice" that my car warranty is expiring or will soon expire. Then says to press "1" to talk to an agent, which I do to have my name taken off the list...but they never answer.
Will not stop calling my office number and cell phone.
Called my phone. Left message. Message got cut off because of voicemail
keeps calling my home and cell....
They keep calling on my verizon cell phone. I have told them repeatedly to stop they keep calling. Verizon claims that they do not sell phone numbers.
Caller called, left no message, called them and the number is not in service.
Calling about a free satellite tv..stop calling!
I DNT WANT U TO CALL ME NO MORE!!!
Calling to say warranty is running out. Pressed 1 to speak with someone, who had no info about my vehicle (so obviously, it is not related to a current warranty) and then was nasty when I told him I wasn't interested.
Someone called me on my cell, number on the ID was 802-651-6889 so I didn't answer the phone because I didn't know the number. No message was left so it must not have been important. Looking at all of these complaints, I am glad that I didn't answer this call.
Unsolicited call to unlisted number, did not answer.
calls periodically on my cell to say my car warranty is expiring. called coworker 15 mins. later on his cell.
This people called my office for months before I got them to stop. Then they started in on my cel phone. I've asked them to take me off of their list and they haven't. Next step the AG's office in VT and CA.
Number came up on my cell's Caller ID. I hardly ever give out my cell number, but regardless, he didn't leave a message. Wonder if I can block a number like you can spammers' e-mail addresses...
I don't know where he got my number but he called a couple of times selling extended warranties for my car. I got a new car and I was pretty sure that I still have plenty of warranty left, otherwise, I would have been cheated.
The last time he called me, I just remained silent and he held the phone for a little more than 1 min, didn't say anything, and then hung up lol
stated "he will be installing satellite dish systems in my area." before I hung up.
The caller is wasting my minutes without giving an id. Who is suppose to pay for my minutes when he auto dials from an electronic system
Some idiot calls repeatedly and leaves no message. Never picked up, because i didn't recognize the number. Now I know so thanks to this site, i will block it...
want to renew my auto insurance that I never had with them
this guy is a real jerk....calling cellphone and telling you that your warranty has expired on your car. What car...he has no clue.
Called me on my cell and left a voice mail. The voice mail was one of those car warranty scams that tries to make you think that you will lose some warranty coverage if you don't call.
Pretty much the same as below. This is the 3rd or 4th time I've gotten weird telemarketers in the past few months
Preston Picardi (802) 651-6889 99 N Willard St, Burlington, VT 05401
He keeps calling and hanging up.
Idiots call and don't leave messages. I get at least one call per day from this #.
Someone needs to develop a 'shock therapy' device to electrocute both rude caller and telemarketers! Trust me, it would sell!!!!
Automated call about expiring auto warranty. First telemarketer I've gotten on this (cell) phone.
Recorded message claiming your auto warranty is about to expire; can connect by dialing a number.
Don't know who it is. No message left. No callback.
Continuously calling on my cell. How the hell did they get this number? They call allthe time about my car warranty. They've even called my home phone. I'm about to frive to Burlington Vermont and kick Ricky Ricardo's ****!
I let it go to v/m, they leave no msg, but when I c/b it is a fast busy signal
Add me to the list called today (I didn't answer)...
Google also lists this name-
I have declined what they are selling and they continue to call. I have tried to call this number back and it is saying that it isnt a working number. They call at all hours of the day and night.
This number called my phone. Not recognizing the number, I did not answer the call.
NUMEROUS CALLS MADE TO MY CELL PHONE - EVERY TIME I START TO FLIP IT OPEN THEY DISCONNECT
got this call today, just hanged up..
Called and hung up.
Telemarketer call to my mobile phone
This was a computerized telemarketing call to my mobile phone.
they are calling several times per week and give an option to be removed from the list but when I select "2" to be removed, nothing happens!
need to stop this repeated annoying call to my phone
I don't even have a drivers' license and these people keep calling. AND then the caller insulted me because I don't need his cold-calling crap product. Assh*les.
cAR warranty sales... SKETCHY!! I fell for it far enough to give my full credit card number AND 3 digit code, when they asked for my vehicle VIN number, i stopped and called my CC company right away to put a hold. I'm hoping they do not try to Fraud me! :-(
Why do they keep calling me?
Can't these people get real jobs? They are harassing me, I don't own a car. What a bunch of losers.
Waste of time
they keep calling me, and every I pick up they hang up it's annoying.
calling cell phone
take me off the call list
Offering unsolicited warranty renewal on a relatively new vehicle with plenty of warranty remaining.
this number called my phone unsolicited.
Called twice on my cell - unsolicited.
They called my cell phone also, but I hung up about 1 second into their pre-recorded schpiel. Looking at all the complaints today, I guess they just started their scam.
Constant unwanted calls about extending auto warrantee from this number. Please make it stop!
telemarketer auto insurance call to my cell phone
called business cell phone, and refused to disclose how they got the number
Continually call my work cell phone to get me to extend my auto warranty.
I keep getting calls from this number, but no voicemail is left and I never have answered it.
This is the second time I received a call from this number. I lease and don’t care about the warranty past my lease date. I was hung up on when I asked the company’s name. Also I’ve been getting calls from
this number called me on my cell phone at 15:29 on 7/10. Since I refuse to answer unknown callers, especially those with "800" type numbers, they went to voicemail. The message left was half cut off, starting in the middle of the sentence, telling me that my auto insurance was about to expire and this was my last warning before my insurance policy was to be terminated.
Its very fishy, hopefully these guys get exposed before some poor gullible person gets caught up in this scam
I got call from this number about warrenty which was about to expire. This is extremely odd since my car is fairly new, and has a brand new warrenty. When I finially talked to someone they said that they were willing it was expired. I played along with the scam to see what was up. They offered me this new deal, that they would send me the information and paper work for $6,000 for another 50,000 miles or 4 years. This is where I became curious and asked if I could think about and wanted to call the guy who sold me the car, and if there was a number I could call them back. "nope, you have to do it today, or we can't offer you the same deal." No number to give them-they just wanted my information. Eventually they gave up and hung up the phone. They still call me, and i have tired to take my name off the list but can't seem to do it where they actually STOP calling me. Worse of all, they call my work cell phone!
called to my work phone. unknow how they got my work number. Very annoying.
The number is not in service but, somehow called my cell phone.
Called and then when I called the number back it said it was not in service.
Called my cell phone.
first and hopefully last time today
This is one of those annoying pre-recorded phones calls with a menu that never works to remove your name from the list.
Garbage Auto Warranty business...ignore them.
I've gotten calls on my cell phone twice from these guys. The first time went right to my voicemail and I just deleted it. The second (which just happened a few minutes ago) involved me listening to the prerecorded blah blah blah, then pressing 1 to talk with someone. I did so, then asked the woman who picked up what car the message was talking about. I was curious, as my last car is currently a cube of metal sitting in a dump somewhere.
She left me on the line (not on hold, mind you; I could hear her talking to somebody named Andrew about having 5 other transfers) for about four minutes, then the call disconnected.
When I called the number back, I got a message saying that the line is no longer in service. Doing a r3everse lookup on whitepages.com pulled up a guy's house in Vermont. Definitely something fishy here.
Called me twice today 7-10-2008
Continually call mobile phone regarding auto warranty. They do not honor the requests to be removed from calling list.
Calls talking about vehicle warranty expired...have no idea what vehicle they are talking about
THIS NUMBER HAS BEEN CALLING MY CELL PHONE. IT SAYS MY CAR WARRENTY IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE... I DON'T OWN A CAR!!
I keep getting calls from these jokers. The caller ID showed as 802-651-6889. The lady I spoke with was clearly Indian and hung up on me when I pressed for details on the company. One option you get when their predictive dialer calls you is to press 2 to be removed from their list. They do no honor this request. Scam. Rip off. I think they may even be forging their CID number, because it shows as a person in Vermont when I search on Google.
I got a call from this number without any reason. I didn't hear it fully, but most probably for renewing car insurance or something. Same as 7025201462
