PERMIAN BASIN - If you've been getting an endless stream of phone calls, e-mails, or letters in the mail about extending the warranty on your car, it's a scam.

The letters are stamped "Final Notice: Expiring Auto Warranty."

The Better Business Bureau warns it's not actually an extended warranty, but a service contract that's often unnecessary.

27,000 people have complained nationwide.

Attorney General Greg Abbott's office is helping with the investigation.
