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.

(didn't leave message) 850-638-9224
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.

Call to my cell phone. I did not answer (figured it was one of these scam ones... looks like I was right).
Thanks to people posting these, its easy to quickly google a number before answering and finding feedback like this.
Received call on my cell phone when I called back, the message stated that the number was disconnected.
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
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
Talked with a person who wanted my credit card numbers and the 800 number on the back. Said they would lower my rate. 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.
no message and when call back, get message that # is disconnected - wish I could catch it live
when you try to call back, it says the number is out of service. im on a national do not call registry and reported them that way.
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 called this number back and it said it was disconnected
Left a recorded message on my answering machine regarding my high interest rates. I think the Stupid DO NOT CALL list is a damn scam if they don't do anything about this garbage, I get these callls twice a week, it's ridiculous!
Automated message about hight credit card rate.
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.
pressed 1 and I told the man that answered to take me off their list and he hung up on me..................how rude :)
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...
automated message, "no problem w/credit card, urgent that I call to ck on lower interest rates."
I get a call around 3 or 4 times a week. ANNOYING needless to say I didn't call
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!!!!
Caller offered to fix credit card problems--we don't have any.
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.
Saw the call coming in to my cell phone. didn't answer it because i live in Colorado. no message left.
Called the number right back on my work phone and got operator error saying the number was disconected.
Go to the BBB and report this number and person at http://welcome.bbb.org/
I didn't answer. They left no message. I googled the number and found this site. Obviously some scam. Bad Jerry.
CALLED CELL LEFT NO MESSAGE. I DONT KNOW ANY OUT OF STATE PEOPLE AND IM ON THE DO NOT CALL LISTS

I did not answer. Googled puck.nether.net's NPA/NXX site, then plugged in the whole number and came here. Thanks! Saved me further curiosity. I was half afraid it was a crazy ex now living in FL somewhere.
Did not leave a message. i called the number back 2 hrs later and operator recorded message said the number has been disconnected.
I got a call on my cell phone from this number at 7:12pm today. they did not leave a message. When I called the number back at 9:00pm tonite, a recorded voice said the number has been disconnected. Please call 411 for further information.
called it back later and recording saying its disconnected, did reverse call and it belongs to a Jerry Goodwin in Fla.
got a call and no one there. Did some searching and found
Jerry Goodwin home
2980 Goodman Hill Rd
Chipley, FL 32428
called about high interest rate on credit cards. press 1 to connect. call the number back and its "disconnected" with a fake sounding recording. i got a similar call a few weeks back but from a different number, same concept though. filed a complaint with fcc.
Never left a message and I did'nt answer it because it was unknown.
I get the same thing. so I decided to talk to them....sicne my Youngest car is an 03 chevy, and 2 years out of warranty I know is gotta be some scam...but as soon as I gave them model and year they hung up....who knows maybe the car will get stolen...I need something more fuel efficient any how...:)
calls and never leaves a message
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.
Didn't answer call as it came in on my cell phone. When I called it back I rec'd a operator message that the number had been disconnected.
automated message about hight credit card rate.
