Yes Hopefully, all phone calls associated with the "second notice of your car's factory warranty is expiring" have now been stopped. I'm glad that the FTC was successful in stoping these fradulent attacks.

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.
