The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want

Associated with academicdegrees.net. I signed up through an email from Beyond.com -- I was using it during my job search, and the email was about furthering my education, which I thought meant grad school. I decided "what the heck" since I am applying to grad school... BIG MISTAKE: now i get like 3 calls a day from different numbers. I kept telling them in the beginning I graduated from college already (which is what they seem to focus on, NOT grad school), and they said they would take me off the list, but obviously that didn't happen. They sometimes seemed pissed, like I was wasting THEIR time, because after I'd say "I already graduated from college" they would say "Ok then we probably can't help you" and hang up... So rude.
Anyway, now I just ignore all the calls, and save any number I find out is associated with academicdegrees.net into my iPhone under the same name (in this case "spam"), and block the contact.
Here are the numbers associated with academic degrees.net that I've gotten:
51862064522 (this doesn't even seem like a US number)
I saw somewhere that these numbers are spoofed, so it looks like it is coming from a certain area code, but your phone is being tricked or something...? Which makes sense, because I got my cell phone in illinois, and I got a bunch of calls from Illinois numbers.
Yesterday was Nebraska. What could this be?
Asking for someone named Kenneth. They're evidently buying the information, but I'm not Ken and no one by that name lives here. I received a call for Ken from another number and I claimed to be him. They are trying to get people to go to an online school.
Perhaps I should not speak too loudly, but it seems to me that these bogus phone calls originate most on the west coast and in the mid-west. Then there are those from area code "202" and "Washtington, D.C." Perhaps, we should be thankful for small blessings that these boiler rooms limit themselves to certain area codes and don't use others.
I have been getting calls from this #, When I call back from a different phone # I get Academic Degree.net.
Academic Degree.net has been using three (3) different phone #'s,
1) 502-871-3596, 2) 651-829-3086, & 956-249-1707
I don't know who the caller is that is related to this phone number. I have done research online and everyone is saying that this number has been scamming people. When I said hello, they would not answer me or comment on anything.
(502) 871-3596 belongs to AcademicDegrees.net Total abusers, i have no interest with them, never heard of these scam hungry abusers.
Also received one on 12-28-2102. Have deleted several before that without recording info.
I called the number back and got a recording, Campus Corner, they are trying to get you interested in going back to school, I am sure it is a scam
