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):
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.
