Many Montana residents are receiving urgent notices in the mail, telling them their car warranty is about to, or already has, expired.
But Montana’s attorney general says be aware, it's a scam.
The notices come in white envelopes, indicating they are from the motor vehicle division, but Tim Fox warns, they are not from any government agency.
The notice urges consumers to respond immediately and often times will have the year and model of the recipient's vehicle.
A department of justice spokesperson says, you can ignore the mailing all together, but if you do call, be wary.
“Just be advised you're not dealing with a government entity. And it's always a good idea to keep in mind to get a written copy of the contract that you are being offered, before you purchase any warranty, even if that representative tells you that the warranty can be canceled or refunded at any time,” said Cora DeSantis.
Some notices also come from companies entitled "vehicle services department," "national warranty services," or "auto repair network."
