FRAUD

Possible scam on vehicle warranty: A Streetsboro woman reported Feb. 27 at 2:09 p.m. she was a victim of a scam involving a vehicle warranty. The woman told police she purchased a new vehicle in early 2013. In April 2013, she said she was contacted by a representative of a New Jersey company that tried to convince her to buy a warranty for the vehicle. The woman told police she did not realize that the vehicle was covered under the manufacturer's warranty and said she purchased the warranty for $198 a month. The woman said in January 2014, she was contacted by another warranty company, telling her that her warranty was about to expire. When she responded that she had already purchased a warranty from the New Jersey company, she said she was advised by the second company that the first company was fraudulent. The woman said she then paid $475 to the second company for an auto warranty. Later, the woman said she went to an auto dealership, where she was told her vehicle was covered until 2017 and she did not need to purchase any additional warranties. The woman said she contacted both warranty companies, and said she was told both would refund her money, which she is still waiting to receive. Police said both warranty companies are registered with the Better Business Bureau. Police are investigating.
