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.

Yes, "Jerry Goodwin" called me today. It was an obvious telemarketing message left on the answering machine. So much for being on the "DO NOT CALL" list.

Called on March 27th 2008 - recording said that my car insurance was about to expire. Obviously a scam. Reported as a DNCL violation.

i played with this out of curiosity
pressed 1

got a live "rep" on the phone who informed me that he was calling about one of my existing accounts
me - which one
him - one of your credit cards
me -which one
him - visa, mastercard, or amex.
me - so i have never done bussiness with you before? If i have never done bussiness with you in the past what gives you the right to call a number on the do not call list?
Him - click

i tried to call back but oddly the number that shows clear as day on my caller id was disconected

the caller id info read 8506389224 Jerry Goodwin

this was too odd not to be a scam

Ladies name was Stephanie Spencer said teh compnay was Financial Services and the caller ID was Jerry Goodwin Chipley FL. 850-638-9224. I asked for a callback number and was tld unless I gave them the info they wanted and got approved there was no call back number. I fear SCAM!!! watch out.

I got the same call yesterday and hit #2 to be off the list. I just made a complaint and was trying to search the company and found this site.

I agree with the rest of the comments about this call and others. The BBB nor the DO NOT CALL LIST are working. What can be done? I am really tired of these calls and would do something if I could. How do these numbers come up on our caller IDs if they are not working numbers? Can't the phone company do something? Enough is enough. Will someone please help us stop these calls.

I know what the scam is. When you press one, your phone company is billed. You are billed for this call. It is the scam.

automated call about high credit card rate. Same thing similar to what was received it sounds like from phone nbr 954-370-0846 which had ID Ft. Lauderdale. I pressed #2 when prompted to remove my number

Now these bastages are putting a person's name on the caller ID. If you have time and are not paying for minutes, please press 1 as soon as you know who they are. That requires a rep to answer the phone. Just press 1 and put the phone down a few minutes. Maybe we can get them to stop breaking the law if we waste enough of their time.

did some research on this and found the number connected to Jery Goodwin, 2980 GOODMAN HILL RD, CHIPLEY, FL 32428. Interestingly enough, there is a Jerry Goodwin at this address, however the phone number is: 850-638-8455 instead of 9224...

I didn't recognize name or number and didn't answer. This number has called several times before. This is the first time a name has been displayed. No message has ever been left.
What an annoying human being Jerry Goodwin is!

I received a call from this number and didn't answer - the caller ID said Jerry Goodwin and when I searched on the number, was directed to this site. Didn't leave a message and when I called back, the number was disconnected. Annoying.

This number showed up (Jerry Goodwin) and I didn't answer it. My answering machine picked it up and they said I had won a Carribean trip and if I wanted it to press 1 and if I wanted to be removed from their list press 8.... What a scammer!!!!

Automated message from "Account Services." Calling this number back showed it is disconnected. Telemarketing scam. Google "Account Services" and Heather and you'll get 26,000 results, including this site.

I recieved a call from this number saying my car insurance was about to expire. I asked to speak to a representative and someone asked me what the make and model of my car is, but I didn't tell them. When I explained that I didn't have any insurance under my name, I didn't hear anything and I hung up.
