I am 60 yrs old...no student loans! Did not answer phone!
I got a call from this number and did not answer. They left a voicemail, identifying the caller as a NelNet rep. They were looking for someone who used to live with me (but that was LONG before she went back to college) and wanted her to contact them ASAP.
I called them back after gathering all contact information I could find on the person they were seeking and waited on hold for nearly 20 minutes to reach a representative.
Once I got a live person on the phone, the customer service was outstanding!
I explained that this person was using my phone number as a contact number for different things, most of them being for loan references (which these servicers are not checking before they loan her money).
I gave them all of the contact information I found, and asked them to remove my name and number from her account, and that I would contact them again if I got any updated information.
This just goes to prove that you really can't trust anyone, so be careful who has your numbers!
THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF NELNET IS Jeffrey R. Noordhoek. YOU CAN LOOK UP HIS HOME PHONE NUMBER IN COLORADO AND START CALLING HIM AT HOME 24 X 7. BET THAT'L STOP THEM.
a man from 855-720-8900 ,855-720-8905,also 8664978723 keeps calling my number for jeannie michealson to collect a debt I am not jeannie michealson nor do I know a jeannie michealson. please have these number check their records for jeannie michealson and remove that number it is not hers I will not call back as I do not want to be charged for for the call.
No, nelnet does not "have the wrong number in their system." It is a scam. Perhaps nelnet itself is scamming people, or the scammer is misappropriating nelnet's number fraudulently by spoofing nelnet's caller ID #.
not a student loaner
You are wrong. No student loan required to receive a call from this number. It is a super scam.
SAVE that message!!! If you have no business with Nelnet and they leave messages on your phone, you can collect lots of money. Class actions suits just starting up now. Save every message they leave and keep a call log.
Nelnet doesnt get it. We are victims of identity theft. Who would be to sign up someone for CREDIT ON THE INTERNET!! No id required to very the date of birth, address, or even the picture. IM GLAD SOMEONE TOOK THEM FOR A RIDE!! NELNET SUCKS!!!!
They are a federal student loan forgiveness company for people with disabilities. I was referred to them by my loan holder after I qualified for disability. They have been super helpful in getting my loans forgiven in a fairly short amount of time. They are also known as www.DisabilityDischarge.com and this has been a great and smooth experience for me!
They called me too. I gad paid my student loans last month to the EDD. So why is nelnet calling me for??
I looked in Netnet's email and their number is 888.486.4722. I am not sure who these people are leaving me a message to check my email, Facebook and email.
However, I did find a law firm online suing them in result of this google search.
called and left a message with a common name. told me they were wondering if i still had an item that i listed on CL. then gave local cell number
855 720 8900 Nelnet a student loan company
speed talker, hard to understand, said my name was used and they needed to verify signature for student loan/federal assistance loan? Also wanted to verify phone number and asked for updated phone number for the person they were calling about? So instead of being a foreign voice, I got an voice on fast forward? Yea---- like I'm going to return the call! LOL!
This poster is correct. This number called my house within minutes of my contacting them by telephone to put my loan in forebearance.
I recieved a call from this number but I am 17 and a senior in a public high school so I have no need for student loans yet.
This number calls at east 5x's a day and when I answer no one is there. In hang up and they call right back. This time it's as if someone is on the other line listening and won't hang up. This is very Frustrating!!!!!
I'm getting calls for a Samual King. I answered and told the lady I am NOT Samual King and that I have had this number for years. Please remove me. She said she would. So far they have not stopped calling. They are also texting me saying I have 48 Hrs (to bring my account up to date) I have gotten this for several days. So much for the 48 hour limit. They list this number 855-720-8905 as a call back or reply STOP to OptOut. I am filing a complaint with my cell carrier.
they asked about loan!!!
I have gotten several calls for months from this number. They say there are for the student loan services and are asking for what sounded like "Desha Moore". No one that I know of. When I called back a while ago to ask what exactly they wanted, i was immediately asked to enter my social security number. I hung up and now am constantly being harrassed by this number leaving messages on my machine up to 3-5 times a day. How to get rid of this? I don't know.
This number messages me with a link. I don't think so. Can't be anything legit.
I am not a student and have no debt so I wish they would not call me. I did not answer the call.
DONT B STUPID
Ignore all the praise posts validating this company. Those are posted by these scammers. Even if, at best, they are debt collectors, they are still deceptive, annoying scum.
They probably have a wrong number and if you were to tell them that, they would probably stop calling you.
This number called me last week and left a message on my answering macting that they were from a *muffled sound* Doctor's office looking for *another muffled sound.*
Criminals - lying about who they are. They are in violation of so many laws I don't know where to begin. If they had legitimate business, they wouldn't need to lie. Losers.
Apparently, these folks are a debt collection agency pursuing University of Phoenix student loans. I've gotten two messages left from them over the past 8 months - these recordings are such that they begin when my answering machine message starts so that I can only hear the last portion of the message. I have no idea who they are for and we've received nothing in the mail. No one in our home has ever attended the University of Phoenix. The last message that they left, yesterday, indicated that they would be posting 'account information' to my facebook page and emailing me an 'account summary.' Actually, I don't know if it was me or not since, as I mentioned, the identity of the person for whom they are looking was obliterated in the message by our answering machine message. These people are scam artists: They do nothing in writing via the USmail, and they threaten to post on facebook which, in this country, is illegal. The only country on this planet that allows such is New Zealand. They also send out 'shills':
http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-855-720-8905, which, for some reason, are allowed and fostered by 800notes admin. Perhaps they own stock in the company. Who knows.
It's NelNet. They called me because my friend has an over due student loan. I don't have her new number so can't help.
This was definitely a scam I got some recorded message about checking messages on facebook or something like that.
It's Nelnet - I recently submitted for student loan repayment assistance and they were calling for more information.
I keep getting phone calls from this company stating about a student loan which I know nothing about. Immediately they're asking me for my date of birth and S.S. #
