Called at 4:33 PM 12/11/08. Left no msg. Caller ID'd as "Florida."

Googled it and found this and many other reports/complaints about the "automobile warranty about to expire" scam attempts.

I've gotten at least 25 calls from at least 13 different numbers, almost all of which caller ID as "Florida" since December of 2007.

Here are the numbers (in order of use):

850-433-1850
850-638-9224
305-672-6663
321-504-7429
321-729-9349
386-738-4001
863-467-8918
772-978-0477
1 305-362-5314
1 305-408-6643
1 850-230-8870
1 850-626-1361
1 407 251-6572

A new number shows up about each month. They're "spoofing" caller ID, and and the phone numbers. They're also obviously changing to "new" numbers to avoid detection & countermeasures. Such as "Blocked Caller" lists.

I'm sharing this info with my Maryland Attorney General's Office and a major local TV outlet (WBAL-TV 11, Baltimore). As a result of a WBAL-TV investigative report on these "Florida" phone scammers, the OAG has promised an aggressive investigation to find and prosecute them ... and - to coordinate efforts with other states's AG's.

So - FILE FORMAL COMPLAINTS WITH YOUR RESPECTIVE STATES'S ATTORNEYS GENERAL OFFICES and share this information with them.

I was on an important call and chose not to interrupt. (thank God) They didn't leave any message on my voice mail, and what I find most disturbing is that when you try to return the call, you get a message saying 'This number has been disconnected or is out of service.' That was a mere 40 min after the call came in to me.

I resent these kinds of intrusion and that resentment is fueled all the more because I have signed up on the 'do not call' list.

This seems to be one of those scams where they try to get your credit card number. He wouldn't give the name of his company or the location.

10/21/08 @ 1:03 pm PDT. "Miami, FL" was all the caller ID showed. I hung up after hearing an automated female voice say "Don't be alarmed!" and something about "interest rate". After searching and seeing others annoyed by this same number, I'd like to sue. My number is unlisted and I've been on the Do Not Call list for years (renewed in FEB 2008).

Obviously a telemarketer considering I don't have any credit cards LOL. I let the answering machine take care of it for me.

Recorded message about "your credit card and potential problems". Pressed one to talk to a person. When I informed her we were on the "do not call" registry she hung up.
