Associated with I signed up through an email from -- 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 into my iPhone under the same name (in this case "spam"), and block the contact.

Here are the numbers associated with academic that I've gotten:

518-620-64522 (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.

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 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.
