(251) 947-8966

This number has been appearing on hard-wired and cellular telephones across the USA. Here's a heads up: they're trying to sell you a warranty for a car you don't own. They tried to sell one to my neighbor's 11-year old daughter via her cellphone! Word has it the company allegedly obtained the cell numbers illegally.

  2. Thanks for the info. They have been calling my /office/ phone for weeks and it's /very/ annoying.

  3. I think they are getting their info from the DMV,I just registered my new car. No sooner then a day later they called me. Trying to sell a car warranty I asked who they were and how the got my number "ah through Honda Sir", I was transfered to a "manger" and was hung up on....real scum! I'm sure they have taken a good deal of people with this scam.

  4. I don't think they're getting info from DMV. Google this number and you'll find 100's of complaints from people with no car, cell phones of minors, etc.

    I just bought a GO phone. No one has this number associated with me yet. I get calls every day from this number (no reason for me to answer it). Finally looked up the number, thinking I might call them and tell them their old friend isn't here anymore... WOW! look at all the complaints...

    I think it's a robot dialer. This should be illegal; such a waste of phone service, time, bandwidth, whatever.

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
