I have never in my entire life purchased a Call of Duty game because I have always been a fan of the Battlefield series. I am really struggling with which game I should pick as my first Call of Duty game. I probably won't be buying the first three games unless you guys think those would be good for a newbie like me. Do you guys have any suggestions?

In terms of multilayer it really doesn't matter; choose from Black Ops, MW3, or BOII when it's released if you don't want to bother with hackers. Cod4, MW2, and World at War have hackers but I am only familiar with the latter as it's the only one of the three I play; not many hackers there. If you want to play through the campaigns, which no one does anymore, I would at least play through the first just to see what COD was.
The Modern Warfare trilogy starting with COD4 isn't all that great story-wise, the first was fine, everything went awry in MW2 and not much made since in MW3 either. World at War, the fifth installment and precursor to Black Ops and Black Ops II, had an exceptional story and I'd recommend it. Black Ops, offered something that previous games didn't but it was a bit iffy at times. The game felt more modern than MW2, which was indistinguishable from the 90's at some times, at times but it was grounded by the atmosphere.
Edit: If you're going for MW3 or MW2 before MW, your understanding of the conflict won't really suffer if you start from MW2 or MW3. As for multiplayer, don't even bother with the first two.
I'm not human either but I work at Junes. The part-time ladies give me sweets sometimes.

I personally like Black Ops, way better game than MW3, but thats just me. I wouldn't recommend the older COD games either(WaW,COD 4). It has too many hackers online. Theres not too many on MW2, you'll find at least one from time to time, though, but i still prefer BO over it. I guess overall, I'm going to recommend Black Ops because it won't **bleep** you off as much as the other games will.
