OK, just received a 3rd call from another degree type company asking for Joey (no Joey in our household and we've had our # for 10 years). So, this #, 410-774-8401, and 877-231-7454 are all the same unethical company.

they called from this number afterward: 888-271-7667 They hung up on the answering machine both times, and called at 9 am on Saturday morning (thanks a lot!)

 Aug 08th, 2009
I am getting all kinds of calls from 202-870-5013, 201-257-4829, 410-774-8401, and unknown.

No messages are left and I refuse to answer the calls. Whoever you are "STOP CALLING ME" or I will report you to the Attorney General's office in your area as well as your carrier companies.

I am in the process of tracing these numbers down with the phone company and AG's office.

Those of you who suspect this call from Facebook, take your phone number and address OFF of Facebook.....OR, keep it there, but only ADD/FRIEND people you REALLY know. Yes, that means, no adding the magic banana, that cool band with the guy that has piercings and wears all

As far as the 11 year old daughter receiving these messages, I'd suspect she filled in a survey or other "form" for school/college information, or perhaps even something about "scholarships" - these surveys then sold her details to these schools, who attempt to get in touch with you and get you on the "rich track" for your studies...

I recently got an influx of these calls after my ex-roommate went through career change and was "confused" on what to do next, he saw some survey online, filled it in, and have been flooded ever since..

Karen had it right with me "soliciting for school. did not fill out anything for school. Then they wanted to sell a security system." - told them to take me off the list as this # is on federal do not call
 Jul 17th, 2009
soliciting for school. did not fill out anything for school. Then they wanted to sell a security system.
 Jul 15th, 2009
This thing dials my cell phone nonstop. I called it back adn reached a recording stating" you are recieving this call because you ro someone in your household has in interest in further education" We never gave this number out and its on the do not call list. Tried to leave a msg but it said the mailbox is full. Sounds like a scam to me.
 Jul 10th, 2009
I also suspect Facebook app since I just created a new acct with them.. or a job/career site I recently logged onto. I checked all the inqiries as "NO" that I DID NOT want any info about returning to school, so I don't know what the deal is there. I really think that it goes back to the "old school" mailing lists that are made up of your info plugged into certain sites. Even though they say that your info is safe-guarded, unfortunately, there are people out there that can get these lists and attempt to get you to buy something...anything to make a buck. The people who are making the calls are probably told that we have given permission to be called and are probably just trying to do their job. I used to work in telecommunications where I had to cold-call people and it was hard when people were mad about me calling. I was just trying to do my job and wasn't aware..I left that job and never went back! I will just report the calls that I keep getting randomly and pray they stop. God Bless!

Re: 443-390-1400: Have had sudden spike in unwanted calls that result in hang-ups. These originate from various numbers/nodes, but according to reports online for reverse look-up information, they are from the same source. I picked up the phone tonight and played along. I finally asked politely to be removed from their calling list because my number is registered as a "do not call" number. The line went dead in mid-sentence. Voice sounded like a bad connection. Indian or Pakistani would be my guess as to ethnicity of caller. Have seen numerous reports from other people that confirm this information. I will post the various other numbers here, and separately: REMEMBER: Do your part and report these vermin at:

I received a call from this number today at 3:31pm. I answered and a fellow on the other end identified himself as "Nathan." He said he was calling in response to a form I filled out online regarding online college courses, which I never filled out or requested. I promtly informed him that No, I did NOT request this information and hung up!

I did a search on this number and found that this is just another number for CI Institute - this number coming from Denver, CO.

Another number associated with CI Institute that I has called me is 410-774-8401 from Crofton, MD. This number called me yesterday, but I did not answer that call.

Also, according to this website (WhoCalledUs) there is a third number associated with CI Institute (and/or AIG) and that number is 866-722-6698.

I recieved a call from this phone number this afternoon at 4:59 pm. I do not answer numbers I do not recognize, so I did not answer the call. No message was left. I tried looking up this number on reverse look up and all I could find out (without paying for additional information) was that this number belongs to CI Institute out of Crofton, MD. I could not readily find any information on CI Institute by doing a Google or Yahoo search. I DID try to call the number back out of curiosity and got a busy signal.

 Jun 29th, 2009
Called twice today already. After reading the posts below, I think I'll try calling them and tell them to stop calling me. Hope it works!
 Jun 29th, 2009
I spoofed my caller ID and called back the 410-774-8401 AS 410-774-8401 and they picked-up.

Called twice - when I answered they said they were calling as I had registered and had interest in taking college courses online, (of which I knew nothing about and had not registered) - He then offered my a free home security system just for answering some questions - after saying - this probably won't work he finally gave up
 May 21st, 2009

Called me twice today and did not leave a message. I called back and they said they are a career institute. Pressed one to speak with a REP and got someone. I asked them to take me off their call list which the lady said they were able to do. We'll see.
 May 07th, 2009
called me two times I called back to see what it was...Something about attending college in which I graduated already....

Have no idea why they are calling me, and the man was very rude.

They've called twice already today, once while I was on here reading some of the other complaints.

I've filed a complaint with the Do Not Call Registry. If more people would file complaints, maybe this company's call center will be shut down.

have got a call twice this morning from CI no msg left
 Mar 13th, 2009
Got called from 410-774-8401. My phone tells me they're from Maryland. I haven't picked up yet but it's just very strange. I think I was called by these people before and the man yelled at me. What the heck do these people want?
 Mar 10th, 2009
Advice of the day - purchase a whistle .. the next time they call it will be priceless! YOU MUST FIRST WAIT for an actual person to say "hello" - then just give em all you got with the whistle right into the receiver! When their ears stop bleeding .. they'll realize their stupidity and leave you alone! In remembrance of Paul Harvey .. "Good day!"
 Mar 10th, 2009
8 calls from the same company using different numbers in two days. These folks need a cactus dipped in turpentine, jammed up their poop chute, and set on fire...
 Mar 09th, 2009
Second phone call from this number. But something interesting I found... early this morning I got a call from another phone number 410-774-8401. When I researched this number on (find the information here:, I found a similar description given in the "comments". Both phone numbers have happened after taking one of those "surveys". Maybe this information will help the next person...
 Mar 09th, 2009
Called back and a message service said "Thank you for calling the Career Institute ..." This woman asked for Paul once before and said he had applied to go to college. I told the woman that Paul already had both a cxollege and law degree and to not call her anymore. She was very rude and then hung up.

8:15 in the friggin morning... are you kidding me? If the phone rings again from these people today, as I am sure it just might as I've been reading other people's responses, they will get an earful. Why would anyone in their right mind get a job in this kind of call center? They honestly must have IQ's measurable on a standard ruler. Who else with a normal shred of intelligence thinks that calling people blindly knowing it will irritate approximately 80% (or more) of the population is a good choice of careers?

Well, I guess they needed a place for the people who couldn't flip a burger to work.
 Mar 09th, 2009
They called three times today. Twice from the number above and again from another number 201-257-4829. I didn't answer no one left a message. And when i tried to call either number the line was busy. I have no idea why they are calling but at least i'm not the only one with this proble. O and Caller ID says CI Institute
 Mar 06th, 2009
The phone rang and it came up CI. I answered and a guy asked for my husband. I told him he wasn't here and asked him if he would like to leave a message and he replied, " Uhhh. No, there's no message to be left. Bye.". It was very odd, so I researched on the internet and found this site. The guy was rude and I don't appreciate it.
 Mar 06th, 2009
That is just plain annoying; to be called and then, once we have missed the call, for the caller not to even leave a message.
 Mar 02nd, 2009
These people have been calling my phone non stop 3 times in an hour period.
 Feb 26th, 2009
Called at 8:35am. Hung up when I answered.

Guy called and asked for my kid.How he knows her name,she is only 9 years old?

FYI here is my email

"To: ''
Cc: ''; ''

Dear Rose

We spoke when I phoned to ask you to remove my name from your list. You asked me to send you an email to request that. This is that email.

For the past 3 days I received numerous phone calls. The callers said that I had filled out an online form about further education (I did not), and that DegreeStreet had given them my personal details! I asked each caller to not call again, and they agreed, but I think it would be more efficient if we nipped this at the source, which seems to be your firm:

For your information here are the phone numbers of the callers I spoke with (plus one that was not listed at all)
866-722-6698 "AIG member company"
800-973-0379 "Education Bridge"
224-653-7000 "Colorado Technical Univ"

Thanks for pulling the plug on this."

Started calling 3 or more times per day. They are a leads generation/verification service. They get leads from internet ads that you would sign up to show interest in school/college. However, the "interest", like so many other adverts is very loose so that you will get calls even if don't remember specifically responding to a college advert. They first couple of days the calls are literally dialed by hand from more than one location so that more than one number shows on callerid. If after about 3 days, the hand dialing in unsuccessful, your number is transferred to the automated call center where their robodialer calls you daily. Basically, they just verify that you are indeed interested, then sell the sales lead on to more companies who then call you more. To get off their call list, call back any one of their numbers, and press option one to speak with someone. Just request to be taken off their call list, and they will do so.
 Jan 19th, 2009

Probably affiliated with the other scammers/telemarketers at 410-774-8401, 773-668-1618, 800-701-0155, and 813-885-7057 who have been pestering me for a week.

This number is probably connected with the same scammers calling from 410-774-8401 and 813-885-7057.

The guy's name was Brent. He said he wanted to speak to me about my college class.
