Cell Phone Scam - This is the second notice that the factory warranty on your vehicle is expiring
My corporate Blackberry phone is being called 2X or 3X weekly with a pre-recorded message. On our local radio station it was noted to avoid this scam, as coverage will not provided properly for those who sign up. As our 1994 Mazda MVP Van is not covered under warranty, that provides another clue to avoid this scam. Always be cautious with phone calls, emails, etc. Sometimes they could have relevancy, as with folks whose factory warranty is expiring. Further research and safe commerce practices are always a good to validate (e.g., send in writing or go to local business).
While I plan to register at the Do Not Call website, I read in some of the forums that this may be honored.

FTC shuts down massive robocall scam
QUOTE: We spend so much time worrying about Internet fraud. But it’s easy to forget that many con artists still make their living the old-fashioned way: dialing for dollars. Last week, the Federal Trade Commission shut down one of the biggest and most flagrant telemarketing scams ever. The automated calls (known as robocalls) pitched extended car warranties. They went to phones across the country, including cell phones and home phones on the national Do Not Call Registry. Federal law prohibits such calls.
