Continuous Phone Calls RE: College Information
« on: June 04, 2009, 07:09:27 pm »
I've repeatedly gotten this phone call from a company regarding college information.

I do not recall filling out a survey regarding this, however it may have come up as a topic within a survey.

On the first call, I let them explain what they were about, and then I told them I wasn't interested.

5 phone calls later today, I had to yell at them to remove my number, that I've told them repeatedly that I had heard what they had to offer and that I wasn't interested. Two phone calls were 5 minutes apart, and from the same call tech.

Has anyone else had this issue? The incoming number is a 417 number...

In my experience all 417 numbers are tele-marketers.  I know i've been getting calls from a 417 number ever since June 1st.  They call at least 5 times a day but I know they're a scam company so I don't bother picking up.  Google their number and you might find forums which might offer you some advice or an alternate number to call to get the calls to end.

I would say I'm already 'enrolled' in another 'college.'

The calls stop.

After you complete the college offers, they call you all the time!!....I only would complete them if you are 100% serious.  Good Luck!
