It was just last week that we questioned why the FTC hadn't been able to track down the scammers behind the "this is the 2nd notice that the warranty on your car is about to expire" robocalls. Apparently, we were just a little anxious. On Thursday, the FTC filed complaints against two of the companies involved in the scam, noting that they were apparently placing 1.8 million calls per day, with no regard for the Do Not Call List. Apparently, the scam has already brought in $10 million from people who were duped, though the FTC is trying to get all that money back.
