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.)

Hate that one. They call me daily much of the time. I tried to get their number and tell them I had to call them back but they refused to give it out. A false number also shows up on caller ID. I have told them to take me off their list etc. but of course they continue to call. There's literally nothing you can do short of change your number and hope they don't call the new one.

I invite readers to search for "US Fidelis" with their favorite search engine and judge for themselves.
