If you own a car, odds are, you've gotten a phone call warning you that your warranty is set to expire, but beware, some of these calls may be a scam. These companies calling you are often times 'not' your car manufacturer, but warranty extension companies and with dealerships around the country closing, these companies are looking to take advantage. Nan campbell of the better business bureau says if you have warranty questions, you should check with your automaker. She says "your manufacturer should be the first one you go to about any warranty issues." There are some things you can do to keep from getting these calls. The b-b-b suggests you first register your home phone and cell phone with the federal and state 'do not call' lists. Also, if you do decide to buy an extended warranty, check out the company first with the BBB.
