These people are harrrassing the elderly and should be 9AND WILL BE) prosecuted and thrown in prison.
Calls 12 times a day- everytime I answer there is no one on the line. Isn't this harrassment? How do they continue to get away with it? Because people aren't filing complaints. Go to www.donotcall.gov and click on File A Complaint.
THESE IDIOTS CALL TEN MINUTES APART AND NEVER SAY ANYTHING AND THEN
HANG UP, STATIC ON LINE, CALL EVERY DAY INCLUDING SATURDAY. DON'T
KNOW THE, NEVER HAD A LOAN, NEVER CO SIGNED JUST SCAMMERS OF THE WORST
KIND LOOKING TO STEAL MONEY FROM THE PUBLIC.
THE FBI NEES TO TAKE OVER AND PUT AN END TO THIS, AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
IS BROKE, AND COLLECT SOME MONEY FROM THEM AND CLOSE THEM DOWN.
They call 3-4 times a day, I don't pick up. Once left a message to call them about a student loan. NEVER have had one.
I want to register a complaint on a company that continually calls me after I have asked them to stop calling. The person they are looking for does not live at my number. When I call the company to speak with a supervisor to get my name and number removed I get spoken to very rudely and hung up on. The Company is Student Assistance at 765-283-3498
My ex-husband's current wife took out a school loan and is deliquent. How in the heck they got my number is beyond me since I have been remarried for quite some time now. Not to mention I was wife no. 1 and the deliquent payer is wife no. 3... I've asked them several times to take me off their calling list since I am not related to the deliquent bill payer. This week they called three times since the deliquent bill payer decided to change their home phone because they got sick of the calls and apparently are still deliquent. Today I'm sending off a Cease and Desist letter ---Certified to both the deliquent payer and her collector. If no results then get ready for court.

I got hip I look . don't pick up. they just keep trying. but' I am trier of them .some one should go to there door?
I had problems paying my loans last summer and understandably got calls from them. I finally got situation fixed and under control 12/2008. Since then they call every other week saying that I'm delinquent on my loan (not true since december). I've had them call my lender, lender says, "He is current". They still call. I have them check on my lender's website, "oh, you are current." They still call. God knows how to get off their dialer. It's getting beyond annoying, each caller treats me like I am lying. They always say, "I'll do a status checck and we'll get you off our dialer". Total BS.
my phone caller id also said 800-635-3743
first message says this is an important telephone call and it may be recorded. This is a collector for federal funded student loans. The company name is "Student assistance corporation" the use scare tactics and intimidation to get people to pay their student loans. The problem in my case is that I have never taken out a student loan and each time they call after a ten minute conversation I am able to convince them of their error. Tonight was the third call from them and each time I was told that my number was being removed their list but the calls continue. Speak to Gary operator number 391 and he is suppose to help and get my number removed but he does not sound like he knows what he is doing so good luck!
when I answer the phone, the was no voice or response to my Hi, when I let it go to the Answering Machine there is no Message left
Student Assistance Corp. Once a human being called, the wrong-number problem was quickly and pleasantly resolved. I later learned that the person they were looking for used to live in another apartment here and didn't pay her rent, either.
At 10:15 AM on a Tuesday, a call to their 866-905-8941
number was answered promptly.
They keep calling me for my son's student loans that he took out. I tell them he doesn't live here and to please quit calling, and they never do. They call each day, at least two times. I think this should be unlawful. It is totally riduculous that I have to put up with such crap.
It seems you cannot email or call in to SallieMae without having an account and i was unable to create an account for whatever reason. I was ultimately able to talk to a Sallie Mae customer rep by pretending to apply for a loan. This guy was at least civil and polite (unlike the USA Group rep that hung up on me). But this rep took 10 minutes searching their data bases only to tell me that my phone number isn't in them. SO why did i get a call from the above number again today, this time announcing themselves as SallieMae and prompting me PAY? Someone typed a number into an auto-dialer or 3 or 10 a year ago and now it calls me every day for the rest of my life. I am thinking changing my number is the only option i have.
You can't stop them. After all it's less work for them to leave your number in the auto dialer than to remove it. And if you don't actually owe them any money or know who it is they are looking for, you have no chance of getting their attention. They will not believe the truth when told it or if they do, they simply don't care. I called USA Group (another Sallie Mae collection agency) and explained that i am almost 60, have never had a loan and have live alone at this address with the same phone # for over 10 years. The conversation ended with the representative for USA Group say "You can't sue the government" and then she hung up.. and calls have continued. This has been going on for many many months now, possibly over a year with multiple collection agencies each sometimes calling me several times a day (but at least once every day).
Thanks for the head up everybody...definitely Sallie Mae affiliated...
its sallie mae for past due student loans

My wife owes money but these calls are scary! First you hear static followed by a girl saying "Don't hurt me! Don't hurt me!" WTF right? They call me MON thru FRI between 8PM and 9PM. This is getting really old and quite frankly it's starting to piss me off!
no one there and then it hangs up. Calls constantly
they call at least once a day. if it's important student loan from sallie mae they should leave a message. not sure why they would be calling me, i don't have any outstanding balances etc. i'm up to date with my payments for my student loan. this phone call is annoying to have it call me once a day. and no message. how do you block numbers on your phone???
Ok im wondering why they are calling my house asking for my sister, then asking for my mom lol are u serious? What does my mom have to do with it, if my sister is the one that took out the loans for grad school.
They call several times a day. I never answer, and they never leave a message. I think they're fishing for someone I don't know that has the same uncommon last name.
Called and then dead air...few times a day almost everyday
I think it was from the student loans.
LM is right. i'm behind. my fault.it's good to know whoo these folks are now.i just wish they didn't have ALL of my phone numbers.i guess paying them would solve my issue thouh.:)
not picking up the phone doesn't work....they keep calling.maybe we should all answer and explain our situation.i don't know...just a thought.good luck everybody.
Hey Janice, I took my own advice as soon as I figured out who they were. Which was before I left my "advise". I paid up. I guess these people collect for things other than student loans. So my "advise" still stands. When I called them back, they answered immediatly. Sorry you're having trouble.
Its crazy. If u owe someone money and they want it u would think they would actually talk when u answer the phone. Total silence or recording says please hold and after 10 mins disconnects. That doesnt sound like a way to get paid. Thank people.
Or and LM I don't have student loans with anyone thank you very much but apparently you do so take your advise!!!
They are a company that tries to buy/or loan money to you by taking over your students loans you can look them up at www.usafunds.com
It's a collector for Sallie Mae. Pay your bills people. C'mon, you know you owe it. Stop playing stupid and pay up already.
no one responed when phone is answered
no message repeated calls, I never answer
I get calls from this number several times a day and they don't leave a message...extremely annoying!!
This call comes in from time to time and there is never any one on the other end. It's nothing short of harrassment.
to get rid of these calls put there # on your FAX machine it will keep calling there # all day 24/7 because its a voice line and the FAX cant get a answer.This works great to tie up there lines.
Call every day 3 times a day even a 9pm How do I make them stop
I have received same call...eg; Indiana...I didn't pick it up and found I'm not the only one by looking on line.

I googled this name "Plaza Associates" and found this:
Plaza Associates, Jefferson Capital Systems, First North American National Bank, RJM Unlawful, Fraudulent Collection Practices New York New York
How to get back at this 765-283-3498. Send them a blank fax page. they will keep getting a fax tone forever till there voice phone learns to speak fax.
Called and then dead air...
calls calls calls even though loan is being repaid.
They evidently scour credit reports for names that are 'close' to the one they are hunting for and hope to get a hit from an address or phone numbers listed on the reports. Harasment and unlawful if you tell them they are not living there or have never lived there. Most likely you have a recycled number and at one time it was theirs, or their parents. I started getting calls on my cell phone almost imeadiatly after it went in to sevice. They stopped when I called Sallie Mae directly (after researching) and confirmed they were calling a wrong number. Without giving them any personal info I told them they could verify with my cell phone provider to get a document that the number was just reissued to another user.
i get 3-4 calls a day from this number with dead air all the time, i even tried picking up on 1st ring. as some mentioned about student loans, i don't even have any student loans or outstanding bills.
Call is related to student loans. If they can't leave a message, I won't return the call. They call me 4+ times a day, 7 days a week. Sorry about their luck for not requesting a callback...
Unknown name and no message left. If they can't leave a message I won't talk to them.
Call all the time. I never answer.
They were looking for a Michael Williams. When I asked to have my number removed, they asked for my complete name. I traced this annoying call to USA Funds JIM TROUT [JTROUT@salliemae.com].
They keep calling my business asking for someone who doesn't and never has worked here.
Ikeep getting calls from this number with the same results as others. Has been going on for 2 weeks. How can I stop it?
Probably Student Assistance Corp...Sallie Mae...they never leave a message, but Sallie Mae sure does!
They are harassing me at least 5 times a day. They are calling me because my roomate owes money. I still can't figure out how they got my # or how they know who my roomate lives with. Really disturbing.
Called business # @ 7:04pm, over 2 hrs after office closes. No message. Repeated calls. Guess nobody speaks English to understand the voicemail message!
BILL COLLECTOR FOR SURE AND IT IS ACCTUALLY THE STUDENT ASSISTANCE CORPERATION WHOM TAKES ACCOUNTS FROM SALLIE MAE
THIS IS A BILL COLLECTOR POSSIBLY RELATED TO PLAZA ASSOCIATES
Just a "please hold" then nothing but hold music. Hung up after 5 minutes.
Strange call from Indiana. Sat on hold for 20 minutes waiting for someone to pick up. They got my cellphone, they're begging for a lawsuit if they do it again. -.-;
