This number calls my phone a MINIMUM of 10 times per day. If you pick up to answer or choose not to answer:
1. Sometimes they hang up on you as soon as you pick up and say hello.
2. Pick up and You can hear talking in the background, but no one ever says anything after saying hello about 5 times or more, so you just have to hang up.
3. Never leave messages if you don't answer
4. Calls Start around 8:30a
5. Calls may or may not Stop around 8:30p or so.
6. Calls can range from every hour ON the hour or maybe every other hour.
Apperently this company get information from the internet if anyone fills out an inquiry or job that requires you to answer questions about furthering your education...or something of the sort.
However, I spoke to a representative and they claim that they are from an "educational institution", in which they advise others on how to further their education after undergrad studies and find colleges to attend for graduate studies. I told the rep that I am not interested and I have already found a college to attend. Also informed the rep that they call my line about a 1000 times a day, I do not wish to do business with them and take me off their calling list.

I've filed a complaint on donotcall.gov website for investigation. Hopefully, that will help stop the calls.
**FYI Do not fill out forms online to request information about furthering your studies. Just call tha damn number yourself!

ALSO: 315-207-4761 is another...May not call as often, but its probably the alternate local number for the 800 number.

I received 21 Calls on Friday 8/15/08 from this number. They called my cell phone with an autodialer. I can tell because of the 3 to 5 second delay before they answer. This is a violation of Federal law and I am going to file. A tip for everyone, at least answer the call so it will show up on your phone bill and you have a record of the calls for when YOU file a complaint.

The calls are from a company called EDUCATION ADVANCE. They got your phone number from an online survey you or someone else filled out. They have my number from someone else filling out the survey and putting my number. I now get calls from this company NUMEROUS times daily. It is a waist of breath to tell them to take your number off the list - they will continue to call. I'm still getting calls and I'm at the point where I'm about to change my number... Again. The following are various numbers they have used:

800-793-0282
800-259-7317
213-537-1432
307-215-1001
315-207-4761

Called my unlisted number today, and when I called back all I got was "please wait while your call is transferred" and then music for several minutes.

I have been receiving 2 - 3 calls a day since March 27, 2008 from getyourdegree.net at 800-259-7317. I am complaining to FCC a second time today. Let's keep the complaints flowing as frequently as their calls. These people could be fined $10,000 plus. Go to fcc.gov or call 1-888-225-5322. 4/5/2008

The owner of this number has been calling us every several hours for the last few days. Today I answered and waited to speak to a human, who told me he was calling from GetYourDegree.net. I told him we are on the Do Not Call list and I did not want to hear from them ever again.
