More on the car warranty scam

More from Automated calls from Del Mar-based company. According to the video, the calls come from one Mark Miller, aka Mark Moneymaker, of Del Mar, California. This contradicts earlier reports that they come from a company in Wentzville, MO. It's possible that there are two different entities performing similar scams.

More info on Moneymaker can be found at the Indiana Star, (they actually robo-called the Indiana Attorney General at home), ABC News, and several other news outfits (just search for "Mike Moneymaker warrenty" on the search engine of your choice.)
