I called them back and said to stop calling and they still do sometimes. I'm not interested and told them neither is my family. I'm calling them back again
Is it like a real person or a machine?
Annoying telemarketers that won't stop calling, ever! Block that number!
I have also been receiving calls from this number even though I have not requested information from them at any time.I have asked them to stop calling.
i have got lots of calls from this number and i have answered it every time telling them to please stop calling but they still call.just pleade stop calling!!!
sick of telemarketers
That is a load of crap. The ONLY people who have my cell number are people I actually know and have actually spoken the number to. I haven't applied for a job or requested info about education in about 12 years, have had my cell number for about 6 years yet got a call from this school (number) the other day. My number is also on the DO NOT CALL list. It's just another telemarketing scam who doesn't respect the laws!! If you are told to take a number off your list, the law says you have to stop calling it, PERIOD! The law the does not state I have to tell you calmly!
I got called for 4 days straight until I told them I found a school. This happened when I was looking for a job on other websites such as Retailgigs.com and SimplyHired (i think?). I always make sure to NOT check the box that says I want to look at colleges. Yet, they don't care! I still get calls
I received a call from a lady saying that I requested information over the weekend, which is false and she kept on asking me what course I would like to take. I had to disconnect the call since she would not tell me where she got my information from. I am also on the no call list.
It is an online University, South University, I contacted them through Education Connection. I filled the form out stating that I was available at 8pm & that I am a full time employee. Too bad no one paid attention. I will give them points for leaving a message with a contact name.
Does your list get updated for the "no call" list? Why is the toll free call back number listed as being in India?
I keep getting calls from South University who got my number after I was pushed to consider finishing college by a third party applicant screener. Now not only am I looking for a new job but these morons keep calling. The number they give to call back 888-444-3407 is based in India. It must be a scam, I'm just glad I stopped them prior to filling out the tuition reimbursement info.
Yes it's southern university regardless if you tell then ur not interested they will keep you on there call roster, basically anytime you request information from an ad site all colleges get ur information so if you do one that u like and there's 6 others they get it too, I have graduated and in my masters program and still get calls from them. Ridiculous that's what I say.....
If you keep getting call from numbers u do not know, tell them that this call will cost $1000. But do it at the beginning of the call. they will not call u again. it works! and its legal.
That is an extremely rude remark. If you cannot understand why people are upset after being called all day you should find a different job. I am in the service industry and the customer IS ALWAYS right. Being the people your college calls repeatedly..... If somebody does request to be removed from your list and you put thier name back into your database I would consider that harrassment. I am one of those people you call. Oddly enough, I did not apply for a job online nor did I apply for college. Hmmmmm...... So tell me again how you got my number and why you are calling me?
I fell into it. Polite doesn't pay. NO F N THANK YOU WHATEVER UNIVERSITY!! Maybe they should teach ethics. Leave me alone
I have unlimited minutes, so I just answer and set the phone down. I'm sure they work off commission or incentive, so I let them talk to air.
To the South U. rep here that explained how this works, thanks. However, why would you think its good business practice to immediately bombard a potential customer's phone for weeks on end.
I am now attending an online university, but not South, or American because of their harrassing phone recruitment.
They keep calling me and never leave a message. I already have a degree from a REAL university so I have no use for them. They are worse than collections! Honestly, sitting with a friend for lunch, she received one call from a credit card company and I received three from this "South University"!
Keep calling my cell phone. very annoying and costly.
i called them back and talked to a very polite man, he removed my name from their calling list, we'll see if it works!!
South University Rep
I am a rep at South University online, and what happens, is if your applying for a job and the application asks if you are interested in furthering your education, they assume you mean right now, so once you hit submit, your information gets sent out to many colleges, not just South University. Also, if you request any information through 3rd party websites about college or directly on South University website, you are requesting to be called. We have a database of names and numbers we call all day long from people who are interested, if it's a mistake and your not interested, all you have to tell us is, I am not interested and please take me off your list (calmly), if you yell at us and get mad at us for doing our job, i noticed some reps will just put you back into the database so you will be called again just because you were rude.
Your best bet is to just let us know nicely your not interested and the calls will stop.
yea i had told them i found a school and they keep calling me even on saturdays... lame
It is South but it is a College based out of Georgia. I am going to school for Law and this school is not just able to transfer but also barr apporved. Once i answered it was helpful, I only get called now when I ask them to email or call.
This number 4803271300 is getting annoying. They called me once a day for about a month then stopped calling. Yesterday they called again and today twice and it is barely 10AM here. Anyway to get them to stop calling and soon.
missed the call
it's south university, You must have signed up for info at some point. I did and they call me alot. I guess I could just answer and ask them to stop calling. lol
I kept getting calls from them about a year ago and told them I had found a school. They are now calling me again.
This started as a response that I qualified for a GRANT. 24 hours after I politely told a woman that I preferred mail, not phone calls. Now I don't even think it is legit whatsoever and it is bordering on harassment. 5 calls in 24 hours? How are you supposed to sign up for classes without information. I feel like a w***e whose number got passed around from being written on a bathroom wall. I told them to stop calling but they don't care.
I originally requested information from these people, and now I am no longer interested and have told several different reps to STOP CALLING ME and they continue to do so using up all my pre-paid cell phone minutes. Please STOP CALLING ME!
I signed up to receive information from South University about 2 years ago thinking that I would receive info through the mail, yet all I've gotten is numerous, annoying phone calls and a few emails begging me to come to their school. I've told them serveral times that I am no longer intersted in their school but they keep calling. I don't even answer their calls anymore and I've noticed in recent months that they call from different numbers within the same area code but never leave a message. Like another poster said, I almost feel like I'm being harassed. I actually had a rep get angry with me because I told them that I was not interested in attending their school ( and I was not rude about it). I have never received this many phone calls from any place of business. I wish there was a way I could get my name taken off their list
I've NEVER heard of the place (if it is South University) until I researched recently to see who the "Missed Call" numbers were on my cell phone. I also NEVER requested any info from them. My cell phone number has been on the Do Not Call list since December 2009 and I've had the same number since 2003.
