Your Extended Car Warranty-Phonecall...
« on: October 01, 2008, 03:47:44 AM »
I know that you guys have had to get at least 30 of these calls in the last few months!  There are 33 companies in Missouri alone that are doing this.  You'll pick-up the phone to hear a recording that's telling you that it's THE LAST attempt on their behalf to get you to purchase their extended warranty program.  The next thing it says is that if you wish to speak with a representative- press(whatever numerical key) and your call will be answered.

They usually need to ask what the make and model is- but it's THEM who called you, right?

I got soooo ticked-off one day when I got "3" phonecalls in the same day that I've got it figured out now!  You ready?

"I've got a 93' Ford Aerostar with 265K on it....   do you possibly think I have anything of a warranty left???"  

They'll usually take you off the list after that!  

Tell em' you've got a Gremlin, a Datsun(Nissan), ANY make of a relic car and tell em' it's got over 200K on it...     they'll stop calling.

Now you're up against the OTHER 32 cold-calling companies!

Good advise Matt !



I never thought about playing with them. hehe



I know when I receive a phone call and they ask me for my name and telephone number, it's time to have some fun ! If they don't know who they are calling, I don't want it ! And I become Joe Schmow, in Last chance, Montana, and ask for information on whatever they are selling, and tell them how I look forward to reading it. hehehe Good Luck Telemarketers !



Nowyou have given me the opportunity to ruin other telemarketersdays! :)



Thanks Matt,

Tom Mabe is hilarious. I first heard him about 8 years ago. I love messing with teletrolls. I have a 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger. Ya think there's any warranty left on it? I sure hope so because it needs a paint job something terrible.

Maye I should tell them that I own a 1940 Willys. Or a 72 DeTomaso Pantera. Or a 1960 Studebaker Hawk. Factory parts won't be a problem, will they?
