Still more on the car warranty scam

Fox News has put names and faces on some more of the car warranty scammers. They are:

Christopher D. Cowart, of Fort Lauderdale, FL. He owns Transcontinental Warranty.

James A. Dunne, of Daytona Beach, FL. He owns Voice Touch along with his wife, Maureen.

Maureen E. Dunne, James Dunne's wife.

Christopher Cowart, of Boca Raton, FL. He owns Transcontinental Warranty.

Damian P. Kohlfeld, of Valparaiso, IN. He is the owner of Network Foundations, which among other things, produced the device used to falsify caller id.

Dunne and Kohlfeld have prior criminal records. All claim to be innocent, insisting what they were doing was legal, or that they were just following orders. The scam brought in between ten and forty million dollars.

It is still unclear what, if any, punishment they will face. My guess is that they'll be fined less than they made in the scam and face no jail time.

I wonder what these people's phone numbers, email addresses, street addresses, websites and social security numbers. It would be fun to turn the tables against them. There's so much buzz out there about extended auto warranty scams in the US.
