I'm just a high school student looking for college scholarships! Not scams! I get calls from this number and about four others every day just because I filled out a scholarship application! This needs to stop! They won't answer when I do pick up. The number is "out of service" when I call back, and there is no way to unsubscribe!

Received a call from this number at 6:30 PM 11/16/2011. Asian sounding woman wanted to speak to me about my VISA card ending in a four-digit number that didn't match my card. Woman stated she was calling from USAA and offered me a $100 gift certificate. I advised her I wasn't interested, I was on the "do not call list" and not to call me again. I suspect the caller was a fraudster trying to get my correct credit card number and personal information.

I just recv'd a call from someone stating to be "College Finders". When i stated that i am already in college and didn't need their services the woman said "Alright" and hung up on me...before i could ask her to take me off her call  listing. I searched for the company online...thinking maybe I could find a website and remove MYSELF from the list, but it lists Anthem, Capella, and Kaplan colleges listed on the left hand side, and the screen asks for your zip code. There is nothing else to click on. (http://collegefinders.us/)

Prank Call
They have started in with a new number now (347-697-1454), so the game begins again!  Anyone who did not see my last post, here it is again with some creative ideas on how to deal with these idiots:

"OK, first off, everyone CALM DOWN and don?t freak out about these guys.  No matter what they say or what they threaten, they CAN?T do anything to you.  I know every one of us has tried filing reports with law enforcement, FTC, FBI, ic3, etc.  It doesn?t seem to work, because these guys aren?t even in the USA.  So take a deep breath, relax and don?t let them ruffle your feathers.

Now, I started getting these calls about a year ago.  I have personally used all of the tactics below, and they do stop calling me for about 6 months?so the way I figure it, a little time out of my day to give them back a taste of their own medicine is worth it for 6 months of peace and quiet.  Keep in mind, as well, every minute you spend screwing with them on the phone is a minute they are NOT able to scam someone else.  (And the only way they will ever stop is if nobody pays them any money ever again!)  And now for the fun part?how to screw with them back.  I will start with the easiest and move up the line with the more time consuming:

If you have no time to mess with them:
a.    Just don?t pick up the line.  Let it go to voicemail and delete the message.
b.    Pick up the line and immediately hang up.  Keep doing it until they stop.
c.    Pick up the line and use an air horn or police whistle blown straight into the mouthpiece of the phone.  (I personally like the canned airhorn the best.)
d.    If they call while you are driving, turn the radio up as loud as possible and answer the line on speakerphone.  Don?t say anything, just let them listen to the blasting music.  Heavy metal music works best, but I personally have a CD with Star Spangled Banner on it, so I play that as loud as I can.  Just leave the line open with the music blasting until they hang up.

If you have a little more time to mess with them:
a.    Ask if they are related to the deceased (insert your name here as the ?deceased?) or just a family friend, because ?the viewing of the body if for family only, but the memorial service is open to everyone.?  Ask if they would like directions to the funeral.
b.    Simply tell them that you have read all about their scam on the internet & seen it on the news on TV, so you aren?t paying anything.  Don?t listen to any response, just hang up on them after saying this.
c.    Use this one only if you are willing to be as crude as they are:  Using the name they gave you (i.e., ?Officer Mike Taylor? was the last one I got), say, ?Is the this THE Officer Mike Taylor I read about on the internet?  Is it true what the posts online say, that you have such a small d**k that even camels won?t have sex with you??  Then hang up on them.
d.    (For this one, I must first apologize to PETA and all vegans, but it highly offends the scammers because they consider cows to be divine beings.)  Tell them you don?t have time to speak with them, because you work at a slaughter house and you have over 100 cattle you need to ?kill off? before the end off the day.  Then hang up on them.
e.    Are you good with theatrics?  Then try this one?it was actually highly effective for me:  Put on your deepest, scariest, growliest voice and just whisper into the phone over and over, ?I command the demons to come for you, I command the demons to come for you, I command the demons to come for you??.  Just keep whispering it over and over until they hang up.  I think this one worked well because they are quite superstitious.
f.    If you know a foreign language, answer the phone in it and just keep talking in unintelligible phrases.  The more obscure the language, the better.  Don?t know a foreign language?  Pig Latin seems to work just as effectively.
g.    Ask if they are calling from the convenience store, and can they give you last night?s winning lottery numbers, because you are sure you have won.  For any response they give to it, just keep yelling over and over, ?I won! I won!?
h.    When you answer the phone, ask them where your pizza is and tell them because they didn?t get it to you in the ?30 minutes?, you?re not paying for it.  Hang up.
i.    Tell them you are at work right now, but to call you back on your ?home? phone, and give them this number: 202-835-0778.  (This is the scam and fraud reporting division number at the FBI.)  Hang up.

If you are REALLY p***ed off, and have plenty of time to screw with them:

a.    Go on to Craig?s List and post an ad in the wanted section or services section  saying you are looking for a payday loan company because you need a loan.  Ask they call you right away.  List the scammer?s name and phone number as the contact information.  (This sends the scum-sucking bottom feeders off to call the other scum sucking bottom feeders?LOL)
b.    Go online and look for every free daily horoscope, free insurance quote, free mortgage lending, etc., and click on the ?have an agent contact me? link.  Type in the scammer?s name and phone number.  Viola!  Now they will get flooded with telemarketers as well.
c.    If you would like to blow off steam, and have no problem with swearing, just keep calling them over and over pretending you have Tourette?s Syndrome by just screaming obscenities in the phone until they hang up.  This works pretty good in the car, because no one else can hear you and it is a good tension reliever.
d.    Log onto these payday loan sites and enter all of the scammers? information on it.  This way they might even wind up on their own list!
e.    (Do NOT attempt this one unless you have state of the art spyware & virus protection, and even then, you still are taking a risk):  Go into your spam folder on your computer.  Find every email you can about ?you won millions of dollars? or ?the Nigerian lottery? or something to that effect.  Send it back with all of the scammers? contact information.
f.    Research for the phone numbers to both local and national TV news stations ?breaking news desk?.  Again, tell the scammer on the phone to call you at your ?work number? and give the number to the news station?s phone number.  (Hopefully, if the news stations get enough of these calls, they will start airing more stories about it, reaching more people and reduce the number of victims that fall for this.)

Again, before sending money to ANYONE, stop. Think.  Do you have any paperwork showing you owe money?  If not, ask for paperwork.  If they refuse to send it, they are scammers.  A real collection agency will always: 1. provide paperwork; 2. never yell or cuss at you; 3. never require you to pay first before receiving paperwork; 4. never identify themselves as an officer of law enforcement; 5. never threaten you with jail, arrest or physical harm.

Good luck everyone, and if you need any help or suggestions, feel free to email me at rockk9s@aol.com."

I just answered the phone at work even though the full # did not show up. They claimed to be calling from the US State Department. Claimed his name was Justin Wright. Had THICK Pakistani/Indian accent and there was a terrible echo and static on the line. I asked to confirm name, number and badge number. He claimed he could not give out badge # on a recorded line. I asked him to confirm the phone number and he provided this: (347) 342-1768. I said I would call back to confirm that it was indeed the US Justice Department and hung up. They have not called back yet. Hopefully they won't call back.

We have gotten two calls from this number, hoping to stop it before it continues any more.  Also calling to talk to daughter.  Wondering where they received our info, but they won't say.  Same woman called both times, heavy accent very hard to understand.  I wouldn't be surprised if they are not from our country as we received a call early on July 4th (a holiday in USA. I did file the complaint with National Do Not Call, hopefully someone can stop them from bugging us!

They started calling me today.  I don't know who it is; I didn't sign up for anything.  One thing I did notice is that they call every 3 hours and 3 minutes exactly.

The woman asked for my daughter who wasn't home.  I offered to take a message (she has a friend with a similar phone number).  The woman said something about talking to her about college.  I informed her my daughter wasn't old enough to be talking to anyone about college.

They have called me every three hours on the dot since 9:00 this morning. When I pick up the phone they hangup.  It's really starting to get on my nerves. The second time they called the person was breathing heavy into the phone but wouldn't respond and after a minute hung up. It sounded like a male breating.
