*Consumer Comment: Wrong Company
He asked me how many miles I had on my 2005 Chevy Cobalt (I don't own such a vehicle). I told him 76,000 miles. He said that might be a problem because the normal cut-off mileage was 70,000 miles. He asked me if I was the original owner and I
He asked me if I was retired and I told him yes (which is not true). He said he would check and came back to me and said he could extend my warranty for 4 years / 80,000 miles because I was the original owner and it would cover just about everything including water pump, free tow and a free rental car with a $100 deductible.
The price was $3546 for 4 years or $886 a year with a down payment of $495. I would be billed approximately $454 per month.
He said the company was called American Auto Shield www.Americanautoshield.com and that the monthly charge would show up on my credit card as OmniShure.
He explained they have an A+ credit rating with the BBB.
Finally he asked for the down payment. I gave him a fake credit card number. When it didn't go through I told him I was having a problem with the fraud department at my bank because I had just been overseas. I told him I could place him on hold and resolve the matter with my bank in just a minute or two. He agreed and at this point I simply hung up. They called me back from 888-381-6879 but I did not pick up.
I intend to file this exact same complaint with the FTC but when I have done so in the past I have never heard back from them.
