Hi - I am trying to get a singe value from a web service in a json format. My code looks like this

      function accountLookup() {
                    type: "GET",
                    url: "http://testserver/customerinformation.asmx/TestJSON",
                    data: " get_param: 'Name' ",
                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                    dataType: "json",
                    success: function (data) {
                       alert('Good:' + data)
                    error: function (msg) {
                        alert('Error:' + msg)


And the web service output looks like this (.net)...
-<string>[{"Name":"Ajay Singh","Company":"Birlasoft Ltd.","Address":"LosAngeles California","Phone":"1204675","Country":"US"},{"Name":"Ajay Singh","Company":"Birlasoft Ltd.","Address":"D-195 Sector Noida","Phone":"1204675","Country":"India"}]</string>

Then I run it I get:
Error: [object].[object]

Any suggestions?
