A Grand Valley man is out more than one hundred dollars and he says he was scammed.

Ronald Derfler bought an extended warranty plan for his Ford Explorer, but once he paid one hundred and fifty dollars, he found out that the warranty wasn't what he thought it was. So he asked for his money back. That was months ago and he still hasn't gotten a penny back.

Derfler says, "One hundred dollars may not be a lot to some people, but it means a hell of a lot to me. I keep trying to call the company, but they don't answer or they just say that the check is in the mail."

Officials say one of the best ways to protect yourself from scams is to check the business out on the better business bureau website ( Also, it's recommended to only buy warranties through the manufacturer.
