Final Warranty Notice

I got a card in the mail today with "Final Warranty Notice" in big bold letters. Above these letters is a customer number (10 digits long), the vehicle, year and manufacturer, and a deadline date (May 30, 2008 -- wow, that gives me one day to take care of this, oh no!)

Anyone with a little bit of common sense knows it's a scam. There's not even a return address, although the area code of the phone number is in Michigan.

On the back, it reads as follows:
Call and Activate Now: 1-866-442-5552

Dear Valued Customer,

This card is to notify you that this is your FINAL NOTICE to extend or reinstate your warranty on your vehicle. Please call us immediately with you exact mileage. This is your FINAL chance to renew your warranty and requires your prompt attention.

- Coverages Available Up to 200,000 Miles
- Low Monthly Installments Available

Call Toll-Free Today: 1-866-442-5552

Monday-Saturday


With some research, I also discovered their website -- www.endurancewarrantyservices.com. Don't even bother with these people. First of all, vehicle information can be sold. Second, there's a very good chance the cost of this warranty is very high. The state of Nevada has also issued a consumer advisory to alert people of this.

I'm posting this on here because after all the trouble I had with those stupid phone calls warning me about my warranty, getting this card annoyed me further. I hate dishonest business practices like this. These are the kind of people that give business such a bad reputation. Don't give these people the time of day. They're greedy. Throw away or recycle your card.

I recieved the same letter today. I googled the phone number and saw your blog. Thanks for letting us know that this is a business trap.

Thanks. They've sent me time and time again so I'm surprised and google to see if my newly bought 2nd hand car is under extended warranty. Nice to find here that it's indeed a scam.

Yeah I had recieved the exact same card today and my brother got the same one couple months ago. i was pretty sure it was a scam so i googled it and what do you know? yep. my deadline date is August 7 2008. fortunately I've got pretty good memory, and i kno for sure i declined all warranty offers when i bought my truck. from my experience when you do buy warranty coverage either nothing goes out within the coverage time or its something thats not covered so aka waste of money. also i work at a dealership so I'll take this card to work monday and ask someone if theres something i can do to shut this scam down.

Yup...same here. I appreciate you putting this on yer blog. This is one of a series of 'notices' that I have received in regards to a warranty. I wonder if it was one (or both) of two things that made me a target: (1) I recently purchased a used car, and (2) When researching another used car option, I submitted some info to a legit supplemental warranty company. Again, thanks for the quick write up, it's always nice to verify that your suspicions are correct.

I called them today and asked how much and they said for 5 yr 150000 miles bumper to bumper with no deductable it was a downpayment of 234.00 and 12 months of 190.00. So i told them i had to talk to my husband and they said well if i didn't do it right now and called back it would be an additional 200 downpayment so it would total 2514.00 or 2714.00

endurance warranty has done great things for me.
I have a 2004 F-150 and i have a 5 year Bumper to bumper to 100,000 and i have already had 3200 in claims paid in the first year, new tranny 2800 and a alternator 400, i only paid 2100 for the whole 5 years 210 down and 105/mo for 18 months. i was very happy with my service. other companys may be a scam but endurance is not. Just give them a call and talk with a rep and they will answer all your questions, they did for me.

Albert said...

I too got the card. called the #, sounded legit. They gave me a bogus address in Chicago and are not listed with the bbb. Found your website. It confirmed my suspicions. Thanks.----Al

Annoying at best. I called the number to request removal from the Phone list. Endurance rep said that they have no affiliation with that telemarketing company. So I inquired, then why would they sell YOUR product for free? and what is "that" company's name? To which he started his ending script and terminated the call...

I received one today. what confused me is that how they can get the information about my car? on the back of the letter, there is the year of my car and the brand of my car. I was confused how they got this information.

Christopher Hulette said...

Just got one of these 5/7/09. Exact same thing. Knew it was a scam immediately. Googled the phone # just out of curiosity. What a bunch of jerks.

Anonymous said...

Called them to get their insurance. Won,t answer how they got my name. Wants 2375.00 for 3 year renewal. Sounds good, too good. Their high pressure with their 200.00 dollar first call discount.Every thing is exactly as stated. Received card in mail all the same. Last Notice. Don,t get scammed in on this one. Thanks for this site,you saved me a mistake!!! Ronn
