Legitimate looking Phishing attempt for your VIN

Just received a second notice vehicle extended warranty for a car where said extended warranty was never purchased to begin with!

The notice, from National Vehicle Headquarters address 770 spirit of St. Louis blvd chesterfield MO, had a USPS certified mail appearance  and was marked as requiring immediate response as you can see below.

It was easy to surmise that notice was fraudulent for a couple of reasons. One, we had never purchased extended vehicle warranties at any time in our entire lives. Two, they wanted us to disclose our VIN which is certainly information they would have needed to issue original extended warranty!

Take a look at the other side of this post card formatted bogus phishing attempt. Kristi Hobbs wanted us to provide VIN# and current mileage for a car which already, presumably,  had a warranty issued by National Vehicle Headquarters!

The scamsters even provided a fake tracking number which they had no record of when we called the toll free telephone number 800 261 9178
