If You Haven't Bought Your Extended Warranty Yet, It Might Be Too Late

I must have received 5 or 6 calls in the past few months urging me to extend the warranty on my car, heck my 13 year old daughters have even been called by these guys, but if you haven't acted yet you are probably out of luck.

According to ars technica, the FTC has finally filed lawsuits against 2 companies that have supposedly been placing up to 1.8 million robocalls a day and used offshore shell corporations in an attempt to avoid the FTC.
If you live in the US, you've probably received illegal telemarketing calls claiming that your car warranty is about to expire—even if you don't own a car. The brazen "extended warranty" scam has now been busted by the Federal Trade Commission, which filed a pair of federal lawsuits to take over the companies behind the calls.

So if you were like the guy on KELO the other night who said he would have probably bought one of these warranties if the robocall hadn't come when he was too busy to act on it, you have probably missed your chance. Hopefully though maybe someone will call him soon with some swamp land in Florida that they are willing to sell.
