Of course it's Ontario; it's the area outside Toronto (Golden Horseshoe region, Hamilton, etc).
Received a phone call from 1-800-668-9398 Claiming to be from the CIBC National Student Loan Service Centre. As I have loans through the National Loan Service Centre and the National Student Centre, I contacted both organizations. NEITHER organization were contacting me. NEITHER group has that number as one of their numbers. As far as I am concerned it is clearly a fishing scam. I am wondering if the RCMP should be notified.
I also received a message from Tricura Canada, only the number was 905-306-6257. Also having doubts, I called the National Student Loans Service Center. I was thanked for returning THEIR call. The only verification requested was my loan number, name, address and contact number. The reason for their call was to request I either upload to my existing application, mail or fax income verification for the month I was applying instead of the end of the previous month it was received for the following month's income, which is what I had originally sent. This information is required in order to process my application for repayment assistance.
905 area code is an Oshawa number
I got a call from this number last night. She said she needed to talk to me about my "student loan details" and when I asked "Which student loan?" she hung up. I trust no one who does not lead with "My name is (name) and I am calling from (company) in regards to (issue)." A***oles.
Just got a call from this number so before I answered it, I googled it. This all came up. I let the call go to voicemail. I checked the voicemail and it was a robot saying "This is important stay on the line" It said it a bunch of times then some chick came on saying Hello? Hello? Looking for Michelle? Like wtf? My OSAP is paid regularly, some months when I have extra money, I put it on my student loan so that I don't have to worry about the next months payment. So yeah. It makes no sense. I've had a hard time paying in the past and have spoken with LEGIT NSLSC to come to agreement on payments. (They took it down to 100$ a month.) This clearly isn't a company hired by Student Loans. And if it is..... well. I think once their contract is up they'll be replaced!! It seems so unlegit. I can't see them getting a penny out of anyone.
They called me today but the sound is very low.
I received a call from this number, but no voicemail.
If the caller is NSLSC and they left a voicemail, I would happily call back!
However, because no one left a message, I will not answer this number because I believe it is a SCAM.
I just got a call today.
This is the National Student Loans center (OSAP)
I just got off the phone with national student loan service centre and they said that that number was from their repayment department. There is nothing wrong with not answering the calls though, if it is important they will get ahold of you.
Just got a call from this number 730 pm bc time. It told me that was asudent loan issue and to call this number back 1866 778 0288 so I did . It is in fact a sudent loan call to tell me i had missed a payment they where very nice and understanding from what i seen no scam going on here. I just didnt give them any personal info except my name, dob, and adress and everything got squared away.
Not impressed in the slightest..
So, apparently sombody used my fathers phone, to call this number reguarding my student loan, now their calling back, yes.. i have a 15k student loan. probably about to enter repayment, But.. whatever, They should be calling MY cell phone.. NOT his. just called this # got their answering machine..
I got this call @7pm. I don't believe that student loan office will work after 6pm, although the message says it from student loan office. And it asked me to press 0 to talk to a officee. Totally it's a fishing scamper! !
I got this call on my cellphone, but I don't have a government student loan. In fact, the call wasn't even for me. It was for my girlfriend. Why they would be calling me instead of her is baffling.
905 is GTA code, ontario
Just got a call, it was OSAP asking for a call back.
if you work there what makes u think u can talk that way
Yeah, I've had National Student Loans leave me a message before, they don't leave sketchy information, or crap like that, and I just got called from that 905 number. Sorry people, I don't care what you say, but I'm Canadian, and there is NO WAY in hell a United States number will have anything to do with my student loans.
The ones that are saying it's legit are idiots and probably work for the telemarketers.
905 is not Ontario. Its the United States.
This number JUST called me. I left it to voicemail, heard it, and it was a total scam, all it said was "If you are this person, we have an important announcement to make. please stay on the line and press 0 and a representative will be with you shortly"
.. first off, they didnt confirm on "who this person is", secondly, cant stay on the line if im not even connected through the line. laaaaaame.
It will just be a waste of your time to pick it up and hang up. just dont pick it up at all. if it is important, they would leave a PROFESSIONAL message to you.
this is a call from student loan collection center...
you can call back at 18006689398
If you miss the call you can call student loans back at 1 866 30305303
no student loans
I have no student loans or debts. I graduated last year. Why would they call me?
Then send official documents in writing with proper contact information. I would never give anybody information over the phone because of all the scams out there. If this was/is a legitimate company, they should be aware of heightened sensitivities in this day and age of scammers lurking everywhere. And telephone solicitation/harassment is just wrong on any level. Not to mention the rude staff who work at this organization!
It's Student Loans. I missed the automated message, as I was outside and my very helpful 6 year old is not so good at taking messages, so I just called them back - in my case it was just to confirm my auto payments were starting next month.Call them back if you see the #; they are incredibly nice =)
Called the 1 866 number and the first thing I was asked was for my Social Insurance Number. I hung up.
You know, if this really is ONTARIO student loan, they should not be calling me.
I live in BC with an "integrated student loan" with BC/National, and I refuse to pick up a long distance number only to be charged! Student loans can call me with a toll-free or BC number!!!
Called saying they're from Ontario Student Loans. I explained I live in Alberta and went to school in Conneticut but they're still hassling me. Saying I've defaulted on $35, 000 of ontario student loans and they're going to take me to court for it.
No student loans here, my bet is on scam. Don't give them any information especially your SIN number or Provincial Student ID
Be Very Careful
I'd like to start off by saying that I do not know if this is a scam, it likely isn't, but is it ever worth taking the chance? What I really want everyone to be aware of is that pretty much anyone is capable of Caller-ID spoofing. This is similar to e-mail-ID spoofing, where someone e-mails you from what appears to be a reputable contact (like a bank) and is only someone impersonating that contact and phishing for your personal info. This is actually much easier by phone, these days many smart-phones are capable of impersonating Caller-IDs (especially when jail-broken). People can also readily acquire voice-modulators and phone technologies which will make them very tricky to identify. These people are most likely to impersonate reputable contacts like financial institutions and government agencies in order to acquire personal info. They will likely have done their research. Therefore, it's a good general rule to NEVER provide your social insurance number, credit card number, any passwords, etc. by phone, especially when you received the call and didn't place it.
If you believe there is some issue with your student loan: contact the National Student Loans Service Center directly.
If you believe that someone has succeeded or attempted to fraudulently acquire your personal information: contact the police and your credit-card company.
Dont knowe this compay, thay keep call once or twice a day. would be nice to get of the hook...
