After reading this forum, I became curious and began searching the internet for "Jim Vandiver" and various other key words, including "warranty" and "dealer services."

I found this post where he admits to using cocaine:

I guess that is why he is so paranoid!

LOL. Yes, we do the same thing. My son likes to put on a heavy foreign accent and play along with them.

I also recieve these anoying phone calls. You can be sure I will now put down as much info as I can on them. Why can't they invent a block for phone calls you don't want, like on the internet- just block the sender! Allways follow your articles George, once again thank you!
Check your local phone company they have had a service called call blocker, you can also get a device that id's the number, you don't the caller your don't answer, they also have privacy manager, calls with no name are refused, check with your local phone company. I do recieve the calls, check my caller ID and if I do not know the caller I never answer, I figure if it's important the call will leave a message, if not the call was worthless not worthy of my time. I have it set up so I don't even have to get up, my phone tells me who is calling, if it's family or friend I'll answer other than that forget about it. Great feature for those being hounded by the collection agency as well.

All of that is about to change. I use to work in the Mall, then one day I was told not to come in. We left the job site and haven't been back since. I think they must have filed chapter 11. Hopefully they were smart enough to stock pile their money overseas. Chances are they will just find another investment partner who could start up another warranty company...Then they will be right back to screwing little old ladies out of their retirement for their personal gain. God Bless America!

Obvious crooks, clearly willing to steal money without particular regard for whether their victims can afford it. They aren't likely to stop at much; they have no apparent morals. They *probably* won't find it worth their while to track down people who are hassling them and do anything to them, but why take unnecessary chances?

I found Mr. Atkinson commenting on another Auto Warranty Company called Stop Repair Check out the testimonial Guy looks very familiar.
