This number has been calling me for the past couple weeks everyday. They've called twice in a couple minutes this morning and ruining my sleep. Thank God you can just block calls. Here's another to the list!

This number calls everyday looking for a Mary. I am tired of the calls as my number is a business line. When I try to explain I am not Mary and ask to be removed from the call list they hang up on me. I have called it back and autostatement says non-working number. How is this possible?

January 24th, 2013 hmt90a TX

These people called me twice today. Some education consultants, I guess

They have called two times today, no message left and I did not answer.

November 16th, 2012 Theresa Wilson NV

These people are rude and pushy. I never requested any information from them and when I tried to return their call to tell them to please remove my number as I have gotten 15 calls from them this week. There phone number gives me a "this number is no longer in service" DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE. Anyone who refuses to tell you the name of the organization they are working for and is rude and can use a disconnected number to call from.... that cannot be very legit

November 12th, 2012 Bob Saget TX

This phone number is spoofed!!! He identified himself as working for Education Connection. When I told him he was calling my 1. he was calling my cell phone 2. That I wanted off the call back list and 3. That I was on the DNC list and was going to file a report with the FTC, he said it wasn't his job to remove phone numers from the call list, laughed at me and hung up.

June 18th, 2012 Anon ON Canada

Left a voice mail that was incoherent. Most likely fraudsters looking for information or trying perpetrate a financial scam.

They called me twice and after finally reaching someone, they said they were from a company called education connection for education focus and they help connect you to schools for what you're trying to get education on. It comes from online signups.

December 6th, 2011 CBJ GA

They called me, and when I answered they hung up....I called back to see who it was and they answered
Thank you for calling Education Focus"...and then I hung up - haha!

Collections wanting someone else what happen to don't call.We were put on this along time ago.

August 5th, 2010 Nate MN

Got several calls. Ignored them. They always left a voicemail about some account. I finally called them about it. I told them I was getting calls every day and wanted to know who was calling. They said, "Fairview". I asked, "Fairview what?". They said "Fairview Clinic or Fairview Hospital". I told them I have never been to a Fairview clinic or hospital. She asked for my number and they looked it up. It was for somebody else. I hope that I receive no more calls as she said she would remove my name from their list.

I called this number back on my cell and my land line and both times I got a recording that stated the number had been disconnected (from my cell) and the call could not be completed as dialed or the number has been disconnected (my land line) I called back immediately once my phone stopped ringing and yet it's disconnected? How is that possible? A call comes in from the number, you call back immediately, and it's disconnected? I'm at a loss as to how this works.

January 28th, 2010 Rich NJ

Indian guy called saying I signed up at some website for getting assistance with college (money). I asked him what site did I apply at, or what school he couldn't tell me. Meanwhile he had a major attitude with me and kept repetating the same thing as if he was reading it. I finally asked him what company was he working for he said educationconnection.com. He said something before it but when I asked him to repeat it he said education connection. This is the second time he's called me and both times I gave him crap because all the caller ID on my cell phone shows is "1002", they don't leave voicemails. I'm thinking its a scam of some sort because never in my life have I heard anyone named "Garry" with a thick Indian accent and I went to school in Rutgers-Newark, a pretty diverse campus.

Lots of folks are saying this a mass calling campaign from this Education Connection company. They have a website where you can enter you telephone number on a do not call list but from what I'm reading it doesn't work that well or quickly. Looks like we have to suffer through the calls.

This number keeps calling my cell phone, numerous times an hour on a daily basis, they do not leave a message. My cell phone number is on the national do not call list, this is totally boring, it's been going on for over a week. I do not have a cell phone with me at all times for these people to abuse it by constantly calling. I do not know what they want, nor do I care. I just want them to stop calling me.

I picked up the phone just to see who it was and some indian man asks, " may i speak to the owner of this phone" and I hung up. I really need to know who they are so i can complain and maybe prank them... my phone only gives me the numbers "1002". PLEASE HELP!!

May 12th, 2009 Bill

Was called by this # 866-904-1002. Was recorded message that it was important that I call them. I entered *67 and called the number back. A young women named Chris answered and wanted my phone # to be able to identify who I was & the reason for their call. I asked who the were and she would not tell me anything without providing my phone # and name. I refused and she got very impatient and obnoxious. I asked to speak to her supervisor and a women named DeAnna answered. I was given the same run around, though she did tell me it was a "doctors office" calling me, but would not identify the office name and cited "privacy laws". I asked her only to tell me the name of the doctors office to acertain if I did business with them, though i do not owe any one or business any money. She would not do this and I told her due to privacy laws and SCAMS I would not provide her any information. She was rude and said fine and hung up on me. I called her back and advised her I was going to report this to the police department. She hung up on me. I called the local police (near Minneapolis, MN) and report the problem, was given a case #, and they were going to check in to, and call me back with any info.

I encourage all people to call the police on this...perhaps this scam can be shut down.

January 28th, 2009 A MN

After doing some research on other sites - it's Medical Collection - Apparently they are calling to collect for Fairview Hospitals, in my case, for bills that are not even overdue! I plan to complain to the Fairview Org. Really annoying.

January 25th, 2009 LETS SUE SIMMS

If this is SIMM ASSOCIATES they are a company (if you can call them that) that buys debts from other companies, for practically nothing, then gets you to pay for it in full, and make money off of it

and then they dont send any notification to the credit bureau. On top of it, they are abusive, creepy, and manipulative.

They try to scare you, however they haven't done anything.

if you'd like to learn more check out the other numbers on this site that they are attached to. Just go to the search bar and type in SIMM ASSOCIATES, it will list 4 acounts, read the first.

Also, They work with Discover acounts, but it may not be u, it may just be a similar name, they dont care, they just want ur money,

Ignore them, and tell them to stop calling and take u off their list, they have to under the new laws.

January 9th, 2009 Jamie TX

They have called 15 times and hung up every time. When I tried to call back the number even using *67 it says that the number is wrong and to check the number and try again! How can a non-existant number call me 15 times?????

January 8th, 2009 erd NJ

3 rings and hangs up, no ID

January 7th, 2009 M WI

Called from what sounded like a call center (noise in background). Woman claimed she was with "education division." I asked her "where?" and where was she affiliated, was this a school. She said "this is the number you put down when you applied." I said I didn't apply anywhere and she hung up. Basically, unwanted spam call.

January 6th, 2009 Rachel KY

okay this is just annoying as crap, this number has called my cell like 20 times in the last hour, i get a pre recorded message saying that this is marketing call from education...something...i thought it said the education center, but its not, i called the education center, and they looked into it. it wasnt them, anyway the recorded message says this is a marketing call and if i had any questions to call 201-257-4210, which is the number that is continuously calling me, but when i do call it, nothing happens, no ringing or anything for about 3 mins, then a buzy sound....im pissed and dont know what else to do to stop them calling

Ive delt with this thing before a few months ago another number started calling me saying my car insurance was about to run out and this was RIGHT after I got my new car so there's no way that could of been real. But I changed my number and now its hqppening again but I'm not sure what these people want I havnt been able to answer it yet...

October 21st, 2008 Ruby AZ

We started to receive the calls today. We received 4 so far and we answer on the last call. When we answered no one seemed to be on the line and then they seemed to hang up. Have no clue what they want.

October 9th, 2008 Jen NY

I guess there's a company in New Jersey making calls to unsuspecting people trying to sell them crap because it's a 201 number. Someone must be pressuring these freaking turds to make quota.

October 1st, 2008 Mich W. NJ

I just had a voicemail message from this company. It was cut off in the beginning. I called the number back for their "important message". Becuase they were so buys, I was prompted to leave a message with my name and number or stay on the line. I waited and the woman answered "Account Management". I asked her what company she was with and she rudely repeated the company name. I replied that I understood her, I needed to know what is the company whose account she is managing. Again, very rudely I get- Account Management. My patience is lost and I said, "Look, you called me and left a message. What do you want?" She tells me it would be easier if I gave her my name and mumber and she could look it up why she could that way. I told her "no, I have no known business with her company and I owe no bills so I would prefer not to do that." She said fine and hung up. I don't know what they are trying to sell or push but with that attitude they aren't going to get anything over on anyone.

I have gotten 5 calls today from this number. I called it back and it says "Thank you for calling continuing educations. You may not recognize our number. Press one to be added to our do not call list. Press Two to speak to our education specialist about classes on line." I just wish they would stop calling me. I don't need or want to continue my education.

September 29th, 2008 Buffy AZ

These people keep calling and don't leave a message. Normally, I ignore calls from numbers I don't recognize, but I finally decided to answer.

The guy on the other end was polite, and had a east-Indian accent. To my surprise, he asked for me by name (I'm guessing they bought it from some other unscrupulous e-merchant). He claimed that they were "following up" on a request which I had supposedly made for info on "educational opportunites". He said that they were some kind of non-profit group. I can't remember the name.

He said that I had made this request via e-mail. When I denied that I had, they cited the address the request supposedly came from, which was my.name@some_fictitious_domain.com. So, it was clearly some kind of scam.

They've called back a few times since, but I just ignore them.

September 25th, 2008 John OH

they asked for my wife. said it was education decision. i asked if they were a non profit organization. i was told there is no charge for their service. i responded that you are not answering my question. the lady then hung up. i will report them to the FTC. reporting to do not call is a waste of time. they do nothing.

June 12th, 2008 Amie CA

Answered and they said "Congratulations" I have won a $1000 online shopping spree and 2 years of 3 free magazines of your choice. You only have to pay by Credit Card over the phone for a weekly subscription of $3.59 for 3 YEARS.... just another magazine scam to get your Credit card number

June 10th, 2008 Paul NV

They called me like 5 times today on my cell. I almost never get calls on my cell. I just signed up for the do not call list few days ago. I called them back and pressed 1 to be added to the do not call for them.

May 14th, 2008 Tammy TN

I called this number back and it had some sort of answering service that was all messed up. All I could make out was "Thank you for calling..............to be placed......press one......press two". I have missed everyone of their calls for the past 2 wks. I finally got to the phone when they called and I got hung up on. They call me anywhere between 5-7 times a day and all hours of the day and night. I had a call from them at 100pm last night and I am getting tired of them waking my kids up and bothering me!!!

May 2nd, 2008 Bethany TX

I just received another call from this number at 20:39 tonight. I finally was able to answer it. A male asked for me by first name only. When I asked for them to stop calling this number..he then asks again if this is Bethany. When I said "just stop calling this number" he said "you filled out an application and asked us to call." I said "I do not care what you say. You guys are calling here 3-6 times a day all hours of the day and you just woke me up. Stop calling my number." He said "I highly doubt we are calling that much". I then yelled "this is a cell phone. I have proof." and he disconnected. Lets see what happens with that haha

May 1st, 2008 Bethany TX

I too have been receiving these calls several times a day for at least a week. If anyone has been registered on the national do not call list at www.donotcall.gov for over 31 days you can go to this site and file a complaint thru them. If you do not know if you are registered there is a link to verify that or not. Hope this helps !!!!

They have called many times, I have yet to be here when they do. I *67 and called back got the same message"press 1 to be taken off our call list, press 2 to speak to a specialist" I have spoken to these people before and asked them to remove me.. time to have to be mean if they take me off hold. haha!

March 19th, 2008 Heather OH

They called my house, since I didn't recognize the number, I didn't answer. Of course they hung up on my machine. I called the number back using *67. A recording answered, told me to press 1 to be added to their do not call list and press 2 to speak to the education advisor. I pressed 2 to see what would happen and it hung up on me.

February 21st, 2008 Terri WI

It's an online education number. I called back with *67 in front of the number and got some recording telling me to state my name and phone number if I wanted to be placed on the do not call list--yeah, right, or to call a different number if I was interested in online education.

They have been calling me several times a day for 2 weeks. Call it back and it says to push 1 for this and 2 for that,all about setting up payment for something.

July 30th, 2007 GP

These people called on a Sunday?? I called back during non-business hours and was told that I reached the Account Management Department??

July 12th, 2007 BA MN

This is phone spam from Account Services and they refuse to remove me from their calling list. They call several x/week. For revenge, use auto redial to repeatedly call back but don't say a word-drives them nuts. Suggest you first type *67, enter 2-3 pauses, then 1-866-904-1002. *67 blocks your caller ID for this call.
