reallly weird phone call about warranty

I just got a phone call from an automated message saying my warranty will be terminated unless i press one. Nothing in the message said anything about BMW or anything like that, I talked to some guy who wanted to know information about the car etc.. I said "shouldn't you guys already know that?" he said for my privacy he cannot look into my file. I only have 20k on my car, so i have another 20k before my warranty is up.... is this some kind of scam?

Yes, it is a scam. I got the exact same call a couple times now.

Here's the link after Goog'ling the # that showed up on my cell:

I've gotten that call two or three times a week... and it's for a car I don't own anymore

Maybe our providers aren't filtering the scammers well enough...
