The Federal Communications Commission has warned the public to be cautious of calls from scammers posing as representatives of car dealers, manufacturers, or insurers that warn of auto warranties or insurance that is about to expire.

“During the call – which often begins automated or pre-recorded – you may be instructed to press a certain number or stay on the line, then asked to provide personal information, which potentially can be used to defraud you,” the Federal Communications Commissions said.

According to a survey conducted by First Orion, a company that provides phone call information, 86% of respondents had received a robocall about car warranty, and 30% had received one within a week of the survey.
