they called and i answered. told them my youngest was 19 and asked to be taken off thier calling list. will see what happens. called at 10/07/08 3:28pm cst. and the night before after 8pm cst.
They've been calling me to bug me about books that were purchased with my stolen credit card... they expect me to pay for them since they shipped them! I don't have the books and I ain't paying!
I receive a call from this number at least once a day and when I answer, I get no reply. When I do not answer, there is no message.

I get calls from this number at least 10-12 times a day on my cell phone. Finally researched and found it was Scholastic Books. I haven't had an acct with them in yrs. since my kids are now grown. I did finally speak to someone and they were trying to collect on an acct that isn't even mine. I can only assume the person who had my cell phone number before me is who they are looking for and that was their last contact number or someone made up a number and it was mine. I have finally filed a complaint with the BBB because they will not stop calling and they insist I am the person they are loking for.
We get calls 5-6 times per day. No message is ever left, no one there when you pick up the phone. I called the 1-800-scholastic number spoke to a rep who stated this number is from their telemarketing dept. I had ordered a scholastic book several years ago thru my sons school. The rep stated my account had been paid & cancelled several years ago and I shouldn't have been called. States she will remove my # from their list. I too am on the National Do Not Call list.
Never leaves a voice mail. Don't know anyone by this name or location. I never answer it for that reason.
I receive an excessive amount of calls from this number per week. Usually several per day.
Received no less than EIGHT calls a day (one call an hour) from Scholastic. This is pure HARASSMENT! I've registered each and every phone call on the Do Not Call Registry ( https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx ) and would plead for everyone else to do the same. Plus, I am never buying anything from a company that does "business" in this manner. F--- Scholastic!
Unknown caller... no msg left of vm
They keep calling me all the time - I'm on DND list. They are calling my cell phone - driving me CRAZY!!!!!
I too have this number showing up on my caller ID AT LEAST once a day, but generally more times. They even call on Sundays! I have tried saying hello to get a person so I can tell them to stop calling, but no one is ever there. It is completely annoying and I wish it would stop! I am on the DNC registry.... I guess it doesn't matter to these people!
This number is on my caller ID 2-3 times daily.
got a call from an unavalible number this happend about 1:30pm on June 14th of 2008.I have Never been a Sclastic Book Club Member Ever this is getting annoying to have people keep calling me every hour.
If you reverse lookup this phone number on whitepages.com, it comes up Robert Spiro of Ivy Stylus, New Haven CT. I don't answer numbers I don't know, so I've never answered it. It would not surprise me that it is Scholastic b/c we have tried to get our name taken off their list many times-obviously hasn't worked!!
THIS NUMBER CALLS MY PHONE 2 OR MORE TIMES EVERY DAY NEVER LEAVES A MESSAGE. I REFUSE TO ANSWER THE CALL.
I DID THE REVERSE LOOKUP AND IT GOES TO COMPANY BY THE NAME OF IVY STYLUS.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP THIS CRAP? I'M ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST.
keeps calling and hanging up!
This number calls at least 5 times a week. I am on the DNC list and I am sick of it! I am going to the website that Rick mentioned to file a complaint. How annoying. When I pay forphone service I don't expect to be hassled 24/7.
I BUY BOOKS FROM THEM FOR MY GRANDAUGHTER. MY ACCOUNT IS IN GOOD STANDING BUT THEY AGGRAVATE ME 2 OR 3 TIMES A DAY.
This Phone number staring showing up on my Cell Phone did not answer because it will go against our mintues and it is an unknown to us out of area #. They do not leave messages and starting calling several times a day everyday. Looked up # and found it registerd to a Robert Spiro "Ivy Stylus" Company. This did not make sense as we do not know anyone by this name in CT so I researched more and found this very helpful website. I called Scholastic and the rep told me she has no idea why anyone from their company would be calling me as my accounts are all current and paid. She had no idea what I was talking about and had no record of any phone calls being made to me. She said she will put my # on a D0 NOT CALL LIST with their company. So we will see if that actually solves the problem. I am very upset and angry as this is Harrasment !! Something needs to be done about this and I will look further into what can be done. How can Scholastic can harrass this many people and expect to give good customer service!!! It is ridiculous that I will probably have to pay to have my cell phone number changed in order to stop these harrasing calls -I will be cancelling ALL my book orders through Scholastic because of this and they will be losing a valuable customer plus future customers as I will NOT recommend them to anyone !! I will not even go into how I recieved a bill for almost $200.00 from them on books I never even got in mail ........... !!
Angry customer Apr 17th, 2008
I looked up too. RobertSpiro Ivy Stylus Company Name.
These people call me every stinkin day. Sometimes twice a day. Grrrrr....
Are you aware there may some that have sufficient finance and know how to start a very expensive class action suit!!!
You have been duly advised....stop harassing calls and get into a more legitimate time passing workout!!!
Take my name and number off your call list!!!!!!!!!!
Haven't you gotten the message when I don't answer???????????
they are annoying they call about 7 times a day and im about to lose my mind and were on the dnc
HERE IS SCHOLASTIC'S PHONE NUMBER. CALL TO BE REMOVED FROM THEIR CALLING LIST: 1-800-353-3140
. PRESS OPTION 4.
Never answer, but get at least 2 calls a day. Read comments below!! Per others, this is Scholastic calling to solicit books. I used to be a member but am no longer signed up for their programs. I will definitely pick up next time to ask them to remove me from their list!
repetitive calls on a daily basis, number registered to Robert Spiro owner of Ivy Stylus, New Haven CT
Scholastic - thanking me for being "a customer". I am suspicious this might have been generated due to ordering books from an order blank that came home from my grandson's school? Offered to send me a "free" book. Yah, right..........
I have gotten 16 calls in 3 days from this number if it calls again I'm going to report it to the phone company.
This number showed up on my cell. On whitepages.com it comes back to a Robert Spiro in New Haven CT with a company listing of Ivy Stylus.
This is Scholastics books
I get calls from these people daily, sometime twice a day. I read one entry and it makes sense. I ended my daughters Girl's Club membershp through Scholastic maybe two months ago. Now, they call me constantly. If they want to entice me to start the membership up again, they are sure going about it in the wrong way.
They call my home phone number daily.
I've been on the DNC registry for a while and still seem to get calls all of
the time. If I wanted the product I would go to them.
Just stop calling!!!!!
The caller represents the company Scholastic
Their kid's books are pitched to be fantastic
So hurry to voice an order that's bombastic
For your credit or debit card number plastic
Else the'll bug you until you become elastic
And give into a purchase amount that's drastic
Such people will cause ulsers that are gastric
This is Scholastic. They call every month without fail to sell me stuff, even after I've requested to be taken off their calling list.
Called my cell phone repeatedly for about two weeks. Just about every time, there was no response after I picked up. One time, I did speak to someone, but the call was dropped. When I finally was able to speak to someone, I told them I wasn't interested in what they were selling, I didn't know how they got my number, and to stop calling. It's been about three or four days since then and they haven't called back yet.
Thank you! I cancelled a subscription with Scholastic a while ago, so it was probably a marketing call.
I called back and this number definitely belongs to Scholastic. They call every day, sometimes even three times a day, do not leave messages and hang up whenever the answering machine picks up. On the caller id the information comes out as "Connecticut Call".
they keep calling and calling and no says anything I calling my lawyer.
We've been receiving calls from this number about 5 times a day. It's good we have caller ID so we have option not to answer the call when we see the caller ID.
Scholastic collecting for book orders.
Calls constantly, never leaves message.
I'm not certain as to why this company keeps calling my home. It may be attempting to contact my ex-girlfriend who I believe was buying books for her daughter when we were still together. They never leave a message and I'm not inclined to answer. They call at least once a day and it's starting to irritate me.
John Barry Nov 11th, 2007
Receive call every days with two rings tone then hang up.
These are easy to fix, if you know the company calling. Just call the company, and tell them you want to be placed on the DNC List. Additionally, you should ask for their DNC policy. Have them send it to you, since that takes up their time. Lastly, make them tell you who gave them your number. They know how they got it, and they'll give the information to you if you know how to ask for it. I know it is a hassle, and in a perfect world these things would be fixed for us. Until then, follow the suggestions, and you'll see results.
I get calls 3-5 times a day from this number, at all hours. I answer every time and every time there is nobody there.
9/24/07 8:42am; unknown name, no message.
I too have had countless calls from this co, and it is a computer generated call, with no one there when answered. I am going to call scholastic at 800-724-6527
and also file complaint with DNC registry
I recently purchased Dr. Suess books from "Scholastic Inc.", But they were paid in FULL ON TIME. WHY ARE YOU CALLING 5X A DAY????!!!!
daily calls from this number, and never anyone there when i pick up. it's Scholastic, tho - and I'm sick of them
Calls almost every night and hangs up once answered. No one is there in the evening when I call back. I did reach them during the day and they said they would put me on their Do Not Call List. We'll see what happens. I want to know how they get away this!!!
They call at about the same time EVERY NIGHT. No one answers.
no message, hung up before I could get the call - ON MY CELL PHONE no less!
This number continously calls. I finally got irritated enough to waste my time and call them back. It's an answering call center for Scholastic, selling kids books. I have had no business with them. Chic who answered said it must be a telemarketer calling us. Duh. I told her I was turning them into Do Not Call Registry, and have.
8/30/07 3:43pm unknown name, no message left.
Getting daily calls from this number for a couple of weeks now. I answer and there's no one there. An online search shows this number is linked to Scholastic Books. I have tried to contact them, but can't reach a person to talk to about this.
We get a minimum of 3 calls a day from this number.
idiots keep calling. They need to get into a more reputable occupation. Say.... prostitution, or something.
Started calling this week, 2 to 3 times per day. Comes up as 'Unavailable' on Caller ID.
i called them back pressed 2 for acount status and requested to be removed. well see what happens. they were calling 4-5 times a week.
Just called the 800-353-3140
number which is customer service and had my number put on the DNC list after months of harrassment several times a day. Hope it works...also went to the fair trade commission site and logged a complaint.
I just got my cell phone last week and only gave the number to my immediate family and one friend. This number on the cid says Connecticut.
This is Scholastic.
Have been having the same problem as everyone else. Took advice from another person on this list and called: 1-800-353-3140
Talked to a rep and was promised that my number would be removed within 24 to 48 hours. Hope so!
The rep. told me that scholastic "outsources their phone numbers to several different sales offices and each sales office has their own donotcall list". They should still be accountable for calling those who have told them not to. Another tricky tactic I guess.
They called me again today at 9:00am. I answered. It took them a few seconds to talk to me. She started by saying her first and last name and that she is a scholastic rep. She started to offer me products. I stopped her and asked to be placed on their co. donotcall list. She said she did it right now. We'll see.
This co. sent me things I did not order (declined offer when they called me to offer encylclopedias), made it imposs. to return using their promise of "postage paid return", returned at my own expense, then they called me to get payment for the item!!!!Told them not to call,now they call 3 times a day.
now getting 3 calls a day from this number.never leave a message. already told Scholastic a few months ago not to call me any more. Go to www.donotcall.gov, read "Who May or May Not Call" , then file a complaint. I do every time they call. Nasty company!
I have been getting phone calls from this number like 7-8 times a day at all hours...it is getting out of control!!!! I swear this is why I didn't have a land line for like 5 years...
Get numerous calls a day (its usually unknown or out of area)and they are calling my cell phone too I don't even know how they got my cell phone number ! They usually dont respond when I answer. I also am on the National DNC and my state DNC.
Over the past 2 weeks, I've recieved 237 calls from this #.
I was on vacation during this time.
I have digital phone and it keeps track of all incoming calls.
I have never had any dealings with Scholastic Inc. and never intend to.
Since I returned home from vacation, They have called 49 more times. I have only been home for 4 DAYS !
I turned off the ringer on my phone after they called at 2:37am.
Now I am forced to screen all my calls through the CID Television Display.
This Company is going to be sued for HARRASSMENT SOON and a Class Action LAW SUIT is in order !!!
Lawers have been notified !!! BBB is aware !!! and WE WILL GET OUR PEACE !!! or at least A PEICE OF THEM !!!
TO SCHOLASTIC:STOP CALLING OR YOU WILL START PAYING !!!
ALL WHO READ THIS, TAKE HEED>>>>> BOYCOT SCHOLASTIC INC in ANY WAY YOU CAN !!!
After several times, I could not resist. I answered the call. Took about 10 seconds before I had a live person. They wanted to sell me a set of Disney activity books - the first one would be free. Asked them to put me on the no-call list. So far, so good.
I've been receiving multiple calls from this number for four days now. I answer the phone and there is only dead space....what's up with that?
They have been calling daily for a month. It is starting to drive me batty!
# calls three times a day and no one speaks when you pick-up the phone. Extremely annoying!
calls daily never leaving a message, sometimes calls multiple times a day
Scholastic Book Club has been calling 3 or 4 or 5 times a day, as early as 7am and as late as 9pm. I called this date to have my name removed. They were pretty persistent, but did remove my number from their list.
They are calling me every day. They try at night, next day they try in the morning.
They call ALL day LONG!
When we answer, no one is there!!!
This number came up on my caller ID at 8:45 a.m. on a Saturday morning, "UNKNOWN NAME". Can you believe that they are calling at this time of the morning?!?!?
I answered they just hung up!
I've been receiving calls from this number EVERY DAY for almost two months now... two or three times per day! Very annoying!!!
Recieve 2 calls every day for past 3 weeks. They leave no messages.
Call came in at 8:30am and since I am retired I do not get up early. Before I could get to the phone they had hung up. Caller ID just said "Out of are and phone number"
From everyones comments I find it was Scholastic Inc. Now I am on the DNC list, and I certainly do not have any small children, why are they calling me??
Thanks to everyone for letting me know who called!
They have called several times, but I don't answer calls from people I don't know or it shows unknown.
We belong to their club, but if they keep this up
I'll probably block the number from coming through.
This number Keeps calling as under "unknown name" never leaves a massage. Silver Spring MD
Every single day.... They don't even answer
Not sure who or why they are calling
Same here. The fuckers call at least 3 times a day. Hang up calls.
They call 2-3 times a day...don't leave a message or say anything.. they just hangup... very annoying...
They call us at least 3 times a day. EVERY DAY.
I get hang up call from them constantly. Saw here that it was Scholastic, we have bought books from them in the past but never received calls before. Spoke to an agent (Theresa) # 292 who said it was a Computer problem and that she would take our number off. Hopefully this will be the end of it.
Called 3 times within a half hour. Only let the phone ring 3 times and I couldn't get there in time. We are on DNC registry and have been for a long time. Comes thu as
Are they spying on us?
Did they call me because I am a Dem?
Or are they simple telemarketer?
Arturo Ragagni May 28th, 2007
I get a call from this number at least once a day and no body talks.
