I work for Fedloan servicing and we want to help before the money. When we call you have been delinquent for quite some time and are risking Default. At default level we cant help you any more. If you are delinquent we can help you with like a million options. Pick up the phone and let us help.

This number has called me relentlessly. On my caller ID it says Penna Comnwlth. The let the phone ring twice and then hang up or if they get the answering machine, they leave no message. I finally had enough and called AES. The person I spoke with checked the number and said that AES was not affiliated with this number. I read other sites after googling this number and it seems that it's a scam. If these are real debt collectors they would have all of your contact info including current address so do not give them any personal info. I also contacted the BBB and they advised me to not give any personal info either. Hope this helps and I hope these scum bags are found!

They are student loan collections - AES - American Education. They call me 8 times a day hysterical they call back to back two calls within 2 minutes. I pay every month but always tell them has be 15th or 30th - then when have payment planned they still call. They are pathetic. Annoying but they call they have to give some one a job I guess. There should be a limit to how many times these people/collectors too call people. Like calling 8 to 10 times a day is going to get their payment that much faster. LOL

I live in a college town so I know they are looking for somebody, but it's not me. I only graduated from high school. I am 61yrs. old and don't owe any student loan.
 Apr 19th, 2012
They called before 7am, answered and no one was on the other line. They called back again just after 7am, I just let the voice mail get it but they did not leave a message. Way to early to be calling someone and not either answering or leaving a message.
 Mar 07th, 2012
They want money. My kid is behind on student loans and I am cosigner.
 Oct 31st, 2011
I am getting 8-10 calls a day!!!!!!!!!! The caller does not identify himself or leave a message! How can I find out who these people are and what they want? This is harrassment and I am ready to take legal action
 Oct 05th, 2011
Still getting the number on my caller id but another phone number, still using the P.H.E.A.A. letters. Looked up the area code it is in Harrisburg, Pa. Getting tired of the calls and letters being send to my residence using my mother's name. They are sick and annoying.
 Jan 30th, 2011
Asking for my mother, she never finish school in 1936, lived to be 92. Passed away 2 years ago and now
asking for her on the phone. the nerve. sick.
 Jan 12th, 2011
This number called on my cell phone. Came up "No Name". I'm at work so was busy and didn't pick up. I recognize area code of 717 - being in PA.
Must not have been important either, as no one bothered to leave a message.

Keep calling, said "hello" like it someone I know. Just got out of the hospital and need the rest. I am 60 yrs. from reading the other comments it is about a student loan, I graduated 38 yrs ago!!!!!

This "company", which identifies itself in a recording as American Education Services, calls one of our family cell phones CONSTANTLY. We, of course, are being charged minutes for these calls. They have called twice already in the last hour. I have just reported them to once again. There is a recorded message talking about information we requested ... which we never have requested. No way to actually talk to a human being. The cell phone number they are calling is a private line that has NEVER been entered into any online forms, requests for information, etc. We have no idea how they even got the number in the first place.
 Jan 19th, 2010
I have a remaining loan with these creeps for over ten years, not once if I ever have been late that included harassing phone calls in ten years. I have been late before yes, with no harassing phone calls mind you until the next bill was due I’d pay it. These creeps now call within the first hours of the next business day if your due date was on the 25th, on the 26th they will begin calling you up to eight times a day!!
 Jan 09th, 2010
I wish the calls would STOP.....if this is someone calling about a student loan.....WE HAVE NEVER FILED FOR ANY AND DON'T NEED ANY!!!!!

This number calls the Business number of the company I work for looking for some Pedro guy and i thought i was being nice letting them know that they were calling a business and not some person's home phone. Apparently that wasnt good enough for them as they keep doing.
 Mar 20th, 2009
I thought this was just somebody I knew but kept missing and didn't have their number in my cell phone yet. But clearly it's nobody I know. I took out a school loan recently, might it have anything to do with that?
 Jan 20th, 2009
I am recieving calls about a person I don't know haven't heard of and I work at night.I have called the 800-233-0557 number and I have spoken to the representatives to be taken off the phone call list several times.I called today and asked to be taken off the list again. I was informed that the phone number was up dated oct.29,2008 but that there isn't a notation that the the person called from my number.There is no one in my house to answer the phone or to make calls. I told them to stop calling me so that I can get some sleep and work to stay current with my own bills!!!
 Nov 25th, 2008
Looking for another guy with the same name. Took out a student loan and disappeared on them. So they are calling every David Smith in the book.
 Nov 24th, 2008
Please stop calling me. My son is back in college.
 Oct 07th, 2008
It is AES Amerinca Educational Services. They service student loans. They have call me for various reasons: to inform me my student loan will be on repayment in 6 months, and the month before the first payment was due. A few months into repayment to see if I was happy with the terms of the loan. The called me every few months to check up (to see if the due date is ok with me, to see if I want to consolidate, etc). Finally I told them to leave me alone but they still call so now I ignore the number.
 Aug 20th, 2008
No voice message was left. Unsure who it was or what they wanted.

I changed my contact phone number to my cell phone. I did this months ago yet I'm still receiving calls over the previous number that was listed. In the contact info, it shows that my information is up to date. Why and how the hell are they still doing that? Really, really annoying and bothersome.
 Apr 27th, 2008
Pennsylvia Higher Education Assistance Agency, could be for student loans that are delinquent.
 Apr 18th, 2008
I'm l-o-n-g since out of college, and I didn't have any student loans, so I knew they weren't calling for me. They actually called in reference to someone else. Wrong number maybe?
 Apr 10th, 2008
Called 2x and did not leave a message.
 Mar 20th, 2008
call them back you get a fast busy.

For those harassing phone calls, file a complaint with Verizon. If it has been changed to a different provider, find out who the new provider is and file a complaint with them.

717-720-1500 claims to be from AES. P.H.E.A.A. showed on the caller ID. PHEAA is Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency and they have a 1-800 number. I doubt that Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency called since the initials of that organization do not require periods after each one. Area code 717 includes Harrisburg & Gettysburg, PA. Googled all information from caller ID.

They just called me 9pm at night and said nothing. I call back and it hangs up. So annoying, this should be agaisnt the law. I have no account with them.
 Mar 05th, 2008
Called my mom's cell around 6pm, randomly. She answered, they hung up. They called again later around 9pm. She didn't answer, they didn't leave a message. Odd.
 Feb 29th, 2008
They called me to update my address it was already updated. But it is AES a student loan company.
 Feb 28th, 2008
found this listing about AES associated w/ this number. i don't have any accounts with them.
 Feb 23rd, 2008
I was just on the phone and got another call from this number but I didn't answer it because I figured it was the wrong number, I have a student loan, but I don't need to start making payments until December...I have no idea what these people want, but I'm not answering if they call back to hassle me and waste my minutes.
 Feb 20th, 2008
Took over the phone from a previous employee
 Feb 16th, 2008
they will call to tell you - you are over due for payment every month, even if you have paid on time. They harass people constantly because they do not check their records
 Feb 13th, 2008
Called and said told my wife that they were AES and wanted to talk to me about a ?business transaction", but wouldn't say what is was. She said I wasn't here. They hung up. However, from the notes below it appears that this number 717-720-1500 may be a phishing number. DO NOT GIVE THESE FOLKS ANY INFO.

If you need to talke to the American Education Service arm of the PHEA then call THEIR NUMBER 800-233-0557. They should be ABLE TO TELL YOU OR VERIFY YOUR LOAN INFO.
 Jan 31st, 2008
The person who called couldn't even pronounce my daughters name correctly.
I told them she doesn't live here anymore and to stop calling. They call about 5 times
a day and I don't answer. The number I get is 717-720-1500. I consider this harassment!

 Jan 17th, 2008
They called my cell phone and I couldn't answer cuz I was transporting my 9 month old home... well they never left any message... so I decided to Google the number to see who it is.. and from what I gather, it is AES... I do have loans, but none are in default.. they are in good standing... so I wonder what is up?????
 Jan 16th, 2008
I have provided my number online as I am job searching. This is where it may have been picked up. Food for thought!

Got this number on Dec 21,07 12:29pm and Dec 20,07 12:54 and few other times in the days before. Both times no answer once i picked up, they also hung up on me also. So now not having anything to do and on vacation, I called them back and started to bug them. 1st call was to yell at someone for calling and hanging up on them. 2nd call was to find out why I'm being called. Giving them only and ONLY by phone number they talked to me and answered my questions before blasting then on the phone
Just an FYI to anyone that is being called by these people. Like I was my brother used me as a referance to something....luck be it that he is in the military. This may help you like it helped me with a debt before i joined.

Called AES to check on this. This is NOT aes. DO NOT GIVE YOUR INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE. Don't even answer the phone. They are scammers and they will steal your identity.
 Dec 19th, 2007
I keep getting a call from this number, but I never answer and it doesn't leave a message. My AES loans are paid up and I'm leery that this number is actually AES. This is a very good candidate for an identity thief.
 Dec 19th, 2007
I got a phone call from these people, I never even went to college and my child is not even of school age- she's only 14 months old for Heaven's sake!

 Nov 05th, 2007
Received a call today on my CELL PHONE. I have 2 loans BOTH of which are in good standing, next payment is not due for another 2 WEEKS. Called back 717-720-1500 and phone kept disconnecting.
Called AEI cust Service - 800-233-0557 and they have no record of having called me (???), AND my loans are both in good standing - rep gave me NO explaination. Ridiculous.

No idea who JO student loans either!

HI AES services my student loans.. they granted me a deferrment last week and they KEEP CALLING me 20 times a day. Today they actually called my 77 year old grandmother and harrassed her because they want me to repay my loans before i graduate. I want to know what kind of legal action i can take against them for this harrassment
 Sep 19th, 2007
It's AES and they call to update, on scheduled times, AND to market!!! Make sure you opt out.
 Sep 17th, 2007
This number called 2 times today. Said hold for important message. Finally hung up. Called 3rd time when I answered they hung up on me. Getting close to harrasement isn't it?
 Sep 12th, 2007
This call is from AES. They call if your address information is not up-to-date. You can update your information by logging into your account at and filling out a form.
 Sep 10th, 2007
no answer

I have had several calls from this number on my cell phone, sent to voicemail as unrecognized by me. there was a recorded message advising important matter to discuss. Looked up their number on google today and saw all your comments. I do not have any student loans with AES so this must be a scam of some sort!!
 Aug 22nd, 2007
Dunno, really annoying..i'm still in school too and they keep bugging me.
 Aug 21st, 2007
I'm pretty sure my friend used me as a reference for his loans. I'm still in school so I know it can't be me.
 Aug 16th, 2007
Keeps leaving messages asking for someone I've never heard of before. Told them once that I'm not them but they keep calling. Going to give them hell if I care to pick up the phone.
 Aug 16th, 2007
Former friend still had me listed as a reference. I called them at their main office number, 1-800-233-0557, and had them remove me.
 Aug 14th, 2007
Didn't leave meesage and I never had student loan.So I'm confused
 Aug 14th, 2007
AES calling about someone who used me as a referral and now are trying to collect. When I call the 717 720 1500 number, it doesn't connect and gives a re-order tone. Calling 720 1501 gives the help-desk, who says that's not a number they know.

I get this call a few times a day. The thing I don't understand is don't have any student loans. So, I have no clue why they are calling.
 Aug 07th, 2007
I received 2 call today @ 8.53AM and 8.59AM Eastern time. No one on phone. CallId says: Harrisburg, Pa.
 Jul 28th, 2007
I didn't answer the call. A return call to the number came up with a "fast" busy signal.
 Jul 25th, 2007
I try to answer phone and call back I have no loans or owe no outstanding debts.I wonder how to get the president of the company and return the favor of hanging up and ignoring answering them jerks!!!!!
 Jul 06th, 2007
When answer they ask for wife name stephanie. In return, ask to state there busness then they hang up.
 Jul 02nd, 2007
They asked if it was me after the recorded thing about please holding.

I said yeah in my sleepy voice (it was 8:30, i'm in grad school, do the math), and they hung up.

if this is AES i'm probably going to start pranking them when they call, because my loan payments aren't even due yet (i'm still in school)
 Jul 02nd, 2007
Hilarious. I am out to sea, and they are calling me to discuss a "very important matter". I don't have student loans with these people, I am not interested in consolidating at these rates or with them for that matter, and if they think I am going to call them back? Ha!
 Jun 30th, 2007
Just checked and my account is in good standing. I don't have any payments due for another two weeks. They didn't even leave a message, I had to check online to see who the call came from!
 Jun 29th, 2007
What the heck is a student loan company calling me for? I do NOT HAVE any outstanding student loans. Somehow, AES @ 717-720-1500 got me mixed up, most likely with my girlfriend who has defaulted on her student loan some time ago. I wish they'd get their act together and call the correct #. My girlfriend has her own cell # & I'd appreciate it if they'd quit calling mine!!
 Jun 29th, 2007
I work for AES, its an automated service that is automatically done when your account becomes delq. it may be possible that our system wasn't updated when we called. and for those of you who received a msg and don't have loans its because someone has your num on their acct. call us and request to have your num invalidated so we stop calling you.

hope this answers some questions!
 Jun 23rd, 2007
This is harassment. My account is in in good standing with AES yet they keep auto dialing my cell phone, then putting me on hold while I wait for a rep to get to my call. I called AES. They said that my cell number was not associated with my student loan account and they were not sure how it ended up being dialed. Likely story. They said they were removing my number and I should not get any more calls. Call them call at 800-233-0557 and give them a talking to. This is inexcusable.
