Do you realize that they have multiple representatives and multiple phone lines? They probably have at least 24 phone lines coming in to their call center. You calling every 30 seconds allows 23 other people to call at the same time. You're doing nothing but wasting your time. You might end up getting in trouble for phone harassment though. Best thing to do is block their number.

LOL. I bet you put that rep into a terminal coma. Do you know that a company to whom you owe money will send you legitimate notices for a while, then take a tax write-off on the debt and sell it to these agencies for pennies on the dollar? So say on a $1,000 debt they sell to Agency for $100. Agency pays them the hundred. Company declares $900 loss to IRS. That offsets company's profits. Then Agency begins calling Mr. Smith who owed the company the original $1,000.  Here's the fun part. Mr. Smith has no money, is on public assistance, can't pay the debt so the Agency keeps calling and keeps adding interest to the debt. Interest piles up month by month. They intimidate Mr. Smith so that he finally takes his food money, what he usually uses to buy a little treat here and there for himself, over and above the few dollars a month he gets from public assistance, and begins to make payments. Agency rakes in the money, Mr. Smith goes hungry, is terrified of Agency because they threaten lawsuit. Etc.. So Mr. Smith is paying on and on because of the continuing debt build up caused by interest charges and the Agency ends up collecting over the $1,000 debt. Get the picture everyone? In addition, there is a statute of limitations on debts owed under company contracts. Look up your state. Some states discharge a debt after 3 or 4 years. Some as much as 8 years. What does this mean? If Mr. Smith ran up the $1,000 in the  year 2008, and lives in a 4 year state, he doesn't owe anything now! The Agency cannot legally collect from him.  The debt has been discharged. But the Agency is still taking his food money from him and giving him no peace of mind.

I received a call today @ 1:26pm. I answered an automated voice said "Please hold while we get a representative" I held 2 minutes later I hear "If you like to make a call please hang up and dial the number again" Now I'm angry so I pick up the phone and dial *67 1 800 640 9072. I hear "Hello my name is Eileen Chavez, how may I help you" I told her what had just transpired. She tells me she's looking for A****, I tell her "Oh, I'm listed in the phone book as A ******* so is my niece's Alisha and Anitra, my cousins Andrew, Aaron and my Uncle Albert.  She told me she was looking for A****, I said "AND" she asked me if I knew him, I said Yes, she says can you give me a phone number for him, I said "I don't give out phone numbers, PERIOD" She asked me if I would give him a message.  I told her "I don't deliver messages either" She then had the audacity to say that my son had given them my phone number to be contacted. "I politely told her that she was LYING" My son and anyone in my family if my Father asked them for my phone number not to give it to him, if I wanted him to have it I would have gave it to him (of course that's a pun my Dad passed in 1995) So then the young lady kept saying I could give a message, I asked her if someone called her house and hung up then she called them back would she deliver the message, she says if it were my son yes she would.  How do I know you're really his mother, I told her that I was in labor for 2 days and nights over 48 years ago giving birth to him and I know he's my son.  She now wants to know why I'm giving her a hard time to just give my son the message to call them. I asked her how much were THEY going to pay me, I'm retired for 10 years on a fixed income.  She even had to laugh, so then I told her take my number off your list, don't call my house ever again. She repeats this is the number my son gave to them."  I did what we seniors do best I became aggravating and told her "Well honey, since I am retired and I need to keep my mind active, I'll talk to you until you hang up the phone.  asked her when was her birthday so I could tell her about her sun sign, she said she didnt believe in astrology, I asked her if she believed in "Cause and Effect, You Reap What You Sow, or What Goes Around Comes Around" she said yes. I told her it's 12 signs of the zodiac just like there were 12 disciples. I told her I was a Sagittarian and the only way she was going to get the last word was hang up the phone because I never shut up. I used to be called "Motor Mouth"  Ms Chavez hung up the phone. hehehe.. I called the number back and the young man who answered said his name was Nick Blunt, How may I help you. I told him that Eileen Chavaz had hung up on me. He said I don't know why she would do that. He then said hang on my other phone is ringing.  He put me on hold, and I listened to elevator music for about 4 minutes.  I got another call so I hung up. DO NOT MESS WITH SENIOR CITIZENS

GIVE THEM THE PHONE NUMBER THEY CALLED AND HANG UP. THIS WILL TIE UP THEIR PHONE LINES AND YOU BECOME AS OBNOXIUOS TO THEM AS THEY ARE TO YOU. AFTER ABOUT 30 CALLS THEY WILL AT FIRST LAUGH YOU OFF, THEN AS THE CALLS CONTINUE THEY WILL GET MADE AND THREATEN TO CALL THE POLICE, AT THAT TIME YOU TELL THEM YOU WILL HOLD WHILE THEY CALL THE POLICE. THEY WON'T CALL ANYONE. FINALLY THEY WILL START ANSWERING BY SAYING THEY ARE THE SUPERVISOR.

A guy name Kumar keeps calling. I've told him many times its a private cell phone that he keeps calling, but a day or so later, he calls back. It's like posted above, it's an IT firm called Photon Infotech that gets telephone numbers off of old Web domain registrations, and calls them looking for IT work. Aside from what they are doing being illegal, they seem to be too stupid to realize that people's phone numbers change quite a bit. In my case, apparently they are too dumb to recognize (by the prefix) that its a cell phone number. Lord only knows how many people have had this number before me. Anyway, even if I were looking to hire IT people, do they really think I'd hire some idiot who can't speak English, using illegally obtained phone numbers, and does not take the number off the cold-call list even when repeatedly told its a wrong number. Photon Infotech is clearly not run by geniuses.http://www.photoninfotech.com/

I have done that in the past IT WORKS.  I used redial said I am not the person they wanted then hung up.I did this for one hour and ten minutes. Not only does it work but there is a little satisfaction of getting these people back.

Do you realize that they have multiple representatives and multiple phone lines? They probably have at least 24 phone lines coming in to their call center. You calling every 30 seconds allows 23 other people to call at the same time. You're doing nothing but wasting your time. You might end up getting in trouble for phone harassment though. Best thing to do is block their number.

I save the collection agency numbers under the name 'bad' 'bad2' or 'junk'.  Then, when I see the caller id as 'bad', etc. I just put the phone back in my pocket and ignore the call.  Takes about 2-3 weeks before they give up, but it's only seconds of my time per day.

LOL. I bet you put that rep into a terminal coma. Do you know that a company to whom you owe money will send you legitimate notices for a while, then take a tax write-off on the debt and sell it to these agencies for pennies on the dollar? So say on a $1,000 debt they sell to Agency for $100. Agency pays them the hundred. Company declares $900 loss to IRS. That offsets company's profits. Then Agency begins calling Mr. Smith who owed the company the original $1,000.  Here's the fun part. Mr. Smith has no money, is on public assistance, can't pay the debt so the Agency keeps calling and keeps adding interest to the debt. Interest piles up month by month. They intimidate Mr. Smith so that he finally takes his food money, what he usually uses to buy a little treat here and there for himself, over and above the few dollars a month he gets from public assistance, and begins to make payments. Agency rakes in the money, Mr. Smith goes hungry, is terrified of Agency because they threaten lawsuit. Etc.. So Mr. Smith is paying on and on because of the continuing debt build up caused by interest charges and the Agency ends up collecting over the $1,000 debt. Get the picture everyone? In addition, there is a statute of limitations on debts owed under company contracts. Look up your state. Some states discharge a debt after 3 or 4 years. Some as much as 8 years. What does this mean? If Mr. Smith ran up the $1,000 in the  year 2008, and lives in a 4 year state, he doesn't owe anything now! The Agency cannot legally collect from him.  The debt has been discharged. But the Agency is still taking his food money from him and giving him no peace of mind.

I received a call today @ 1:26pm. I answered an automated voice said "Please hold while we get a representative" I held 2 minutes later I hear "If you like to make a call please hang up and dial the number again" Now I'm angry so I pick up the phone and dial *67 1 800 640 9072. I hear "Hello my name is Eileen Chavez, how may I help you" I told her what had just transpired. She tells me she's looking for A****, I tell her "Oh, I'm listed in the phone book as A ******* so is my niece's Alisha and Anitra, my cousins Andrew, Aaron and my Uncle Albert.  She told me she was looking for A****, I said "AND" she asked me if I knew him, I said Yes, she says can you give me a phone number for him, I said "I don't give out phone numbers, PERIOD" She asked me if I would give him a message.  I told her "I don't deliver messages either" She then had the audacity to say that my son had given them my phone number to be contacted. "I politely told her that she was LYING" My son and anyone in my family if my Father asked them for my phone number not to give it to him, if I wanted him to have it I would have gave it to him (of course that's a pun my Dad passed in 1995) So then the young lady kept saying I could give a message, I asked her if someone called her house and hung up then she called them back would she deliver the message, she says if it were my son yes she would.  How do I know you're really his mother, I told her that I was in labor for 2 days and nights over 48 years ago giving birth to him and I know he's my son.  She now wants to know why I'm giving her a hard time to just give my son the message to call them. I asked her how much were THEY going to pay me, I'm retired for 10 years on a fixed income.  She even had to laugh, so then I told her take my number off your list, don't call my house ever again. She repeats this is the number my son gave to them."  I did what we seniors do best I became aggravating and told her "Well honey, since I am retired and I need to keep my mind active, I'll talk to you until you hang up the phone.  asked her when was her birthday so I could tell her about her sun sign, she said she didnt believe in astrology, I asked her if she believed in "Cause and Effect, You Reap What You Sow, or What Goes Around Comes Around" she said yes. I told her it's 12 signs of the zodiac just like there were 12 disciples. I told her I was a Sagittarian and the only way she was going to get the last word was hang up the phone because I never shut up. I used to be called "Motor Mouth"  Ms Chavez hung up the phone. hehehe.. I called the number back and the young man who answered said his name was Nick Blunt, How may I help you. I told him that Eileen Chavaz had hung up on me. He said I don't know why she would do that. He then said hang on my other phone is ringing.  He put me on hold, and I listened to elevator music for about 4 minutes.  I got another call so I hung up. DO NOT MESS WITH SENIOR CITIZENS

IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT STOPPING CALLED FROM THESE AGENCIES WHEN THEY ARE CALLING THE WRONG HOUSE, THIS IS WHAT YOU DO.SET ASIDE ABOUT 3 HOURS OF YOUR TIME AND CALL THEM BACK EVERY MINUTE STATE TO THEM THAT THEY HAVE THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER. GIVE THEM THE PHONE NUMBER THEY CALLED AND HANG UP. THIS WILL TIE UP THEIR PHONE LINES AND YOU BECOME AS OBNOXIUOS TO THEM AS THEY ARE TO YOU. AFTER ABOUT 30 CALLS THEY WILL AT FIRST LAUGH YOU OFF, THEN AS THE CALLS CONTINUE THEY WILL GET MADE AND THREATEN TO CALL THE POLICE, AT THAT TIME YOU TELL THEM YOU WILL HOLD WHILE THEY CALL THE POLICE. THEY WON'T CALL ANYONE. FINALLY THEY WILL START ANSWERING BY SAYING THEY ARE THE SUPERVISOR. TELL THEM AGAIN THEY HAVE THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER AND TAKE YOUR NUMBER OFF THEIR CALLING LIST. i HAVE USE THIS TACTIC 3 TIME SO FAR AND NEVER GET ANOTHER CALL. WELL, UNTIL THEY GIVE YOUR NUMBER TO ANOTHER COLLECTION AGENCY.GOOD LUCK AND DONT GIVE UP AND IF POSSIBLE GET OTHERS TO CALL THEM

I keep getting phone calls from this number as well, however I know PHEAA is a valid student loan service as both my husband & I have student loans through them. My problem is this...I'm still in school so I have no idea why they'd be calling me on my private phone. They never leave messages & I swear they hire people you came understand & it must be a requirement for them to be rude with no compassion.

I received a suspicious voicemail message from 800-852-1181, went online and saw your post, and also found the website "myfedloan.org  after a search for "Fed Loan Servicing".If PHEAA is a client of yours as you say, do your client a big favor and tell them to improve their website and their computerized phone voicemail messages.  Their phone message sounds like a total scam.  There is nothing immediately apparent from their website to assure people who have been called as "references" that the call is legitimate.  Their voicemail message should refer people to their website for more information, and should refer to a webpage that contains a callback number and further details of legitimacy.For now it still sounds like a scammer is trying to steal personal information by pretending to be some servicer of federal loans.

I think there is an employee at that agency trying to commit fraud. And I also think that the PHEAA should be by now requesting an investigation of that phone number clearing their name while helping a lot of people avoid be scammed

Here's synchronicity for you:I came home from an out-of-town trip today to find a message on my machine from 800-852-1181 (which is a toll-free version of the same line at 717-720-1580).  The caller mentioned that a person applying for a loan had given my wife as a reference.  I don't recognize the name of the borrower, but I haven't yet asked my wife if she knows who it is.The strange part of all of this is that the reason I was out of town was because I happened to be visiting a client of mine who uses my company's products and services:  PHEAA.  PHEAA (The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) serves Pennsylvania students, but they also have two other subsidiaries that service loans around the country:  AES and FedLoan.  They are all the same corporate enitity (it has about 11,000 employees) and they are an absolutley legitimate business, and an agency of the Pennsylvania state government.  The FedLoan division services some direct loans, but they also service loans on behalf of many lenders, including most of the large national banking institutions, other state and federal loan agencies and other lenders.  You might take out a student loan with Bank of America, for example, who has in turn contracted FedLoan to service it.The bottom line is this:  While the advice above about being circumspect with the information you share over the phone is very sound, in this particular case I know with confidence that FedLoan is a real company, and it is resonable to assume that they are gathering information for legitimate purposes.

They keep calling me too.  Thing is, both federal student loans I have out are serviced by two other legit companies, and I called those companies to confirm that they indeed have my loans.  Also, this company only knows my name and phone number, and they keep calling for more info. The two legit comapnies that have my loan had all the info they needed to begin with and sent me a letter that stated such.  They didn't keep calling telling me that they wanted more info. Just food for though.
