This # and a few others all started after I was online trying to get info on Phoenix and Kaplin university online programs. They are relentless. I get about a dozen calls a day that I don't answer. I figured if I ignored them they will stop. But after reading complaints about these phone #'s calling, it sounds like they never stop.
The next time they call I am going to tell them to **** OFF and hang up. I'll see if that works. If it does I will let u all know.
they keep calling me do not leave message do not know them or what they want
I was lead from a legitimate site to a site asking if I was interesting in going back to school. I should of known better and just X'd out of it. Not shortly after, I have been getting these calls non stop. I did answer one time, and they hung up. So from that point on, I just ignore the calls. But its so annoying I just want to scream. Be very careful who you give your number out to.
I don't answer these type of calls and I always say if they really need to talk to me, they will leave a message and they don't, so i will not answer them
I keep getting calls from this number. I don't know who is this.
Give your phone number online to any website that ask and these people will call you about anything form debts to online schools to free grants. They will not stop calling because their a third party calling per your request. Fraud is legal until someone can put them behind bars.
It is American Intercontimental UInoiversity,
(AIU) an unacredited "univeristy" that charges $35,000 per year to pursue their worthless degress which will NOT lead to employment.
keeps ringing our phone and hanging up.

Again these people call every day for the past month I never answer but they dont quit.
After looking at my caller id and seeing this # a million times, with no message left I decided to answer. She claims she was calling from the University of Phoenix. I did not call back to see if it's authentic. But I don't understand why they just can simply leave a message and let you call them back at their leisure! It's just common sense, common courtesy, and professionalism.
these people are really getting on my nerves I too try to tell them to stop but its no use
These people have been calling me since last week wanting to talk to a person I don't know. They keep calling my cell phone even after I told them I did not know the person. I don't know what they want. They are even calling on Sunday

It could be some kind of school or university. I just signed up to win a 10k scholarship and have gotten a lot of calls/hangups from different numbers. When I typed in their phone numbers they were all online schools. So it is probably not a coincidence

After I have mentioned that I am NOT interested they continue to call!! They call back to back to back even when I pick up to hang up and it seems as if they are doing it on purpose. If I am NOT answering the phone why dont they go to the next caller instead of blowing me the hell up!!!
constant calls some kind of online school junk
Let's give them some of their own!! Couldn't take anymore and started picking up and giving them a hard time. (If you wait, someone will respond and start talking.) It's always either Colorado Technical University Online or American Intercontinental University Online. I asked why they were calling me -- they said I'd requested soemone call me with information about their programs (NOT) or I filled out some sort of survey (NOT). Told them I was reporting them to the FTC and that they should stop calling me. The calls continue. Did a Google search. These are both outfits owned by the same for-profit education company, Career Education Corp (NASDAQ: CECO.O). The company has been the subject of various SEC, DOJ and state Attorney General investigations for a laundry list of shyster activities over the years (See NY Times article from July 24, 2005, "The School That Skipped Ethics Class"). They are located in Hoffman Estates, IL -- 847 area code. The President and CEO is Gary McCullough and, according to their SEC filings, he makes $3.5 million a year. Their General Counsel is Jeffrey Ayers. I say we should ALL start calling and leaving messages for Messrs. McCullough and Ayers on their corporate office number, 847-781-3600. I intend to just thank them for the pleasure their company has provided me and my family with the over 400 calls we have received from their fine institutions of higher learning. After awhile, maybe I'll just start leaving no message at all -- just like they do. If everyone does it just once, it will totally tie up their corporate lines and their business -- which would be a wonderful thing.
they call all day. in the morning, and late in the evening. it is 8:50 right now and they called and never leave a msg. this is becoming a pain.
I have been receving about ten calls per day from this number. Same story as the others, never a message and always a hang up. I finally got fed up since the call were coming to my cell phone and bothering me. I started researching yesterday and came across this webiste.
I took "Annoyed's" advice and called them directly at 1-888-379-5888. It is, in fact, American Intercontinental University. I immediately began the conversation and told the service person that I had been receiving relentless calls from 847-783-8966 on a daily basis. I then asked if they were in any way connected to the 847 area code. The worker told me that the unversity's corporate offices are in the 847 area code.
From there I told the worker that I wanted my number removed from their list. He asked if I had signed up for any info or enrolled at AIU in the past and I said no. He said he would forward my name and number to the corporate office. I told him that he did not need my name and that my number was enough. I quoted my phone number and for good measure, once more stated that I wanted to be taken off the list. The worker asked again if I wanted to give me name and I replied no.
I thanked him for the help and hung up.
Today was the first day of no calls in almost a month! I encourage everyone to call the 888 number and do exactly as I did. If they try to get you to give your name, politely refuse and give only your number and state that you want to be removed from the list.
Thank you "Annoyed" for finding that number, your help is greatly appreciated!
This number has called numerous times in the past few days without leaving any sort of message, getting really annoying
Called 24 in the past day or two. When I say hello I get no answer and when I don't pick-up the caller never leaves a voicemail. I wish this caller would stop calling. I don't know how to block the call or I would have done so already. The calls start a 8am.
I wrote the name of the university wrong. The name is AMERICAN INTERCONTINENTAL UNIVERSITY. I called the phone number in their web page and the 1-847 and the calls stopped... 3 days no more calls... Yes!!!
Some man left a message and told me that if I keep calling I'm going to have a problem.I did call him at all.
I've been receiving calls from this phone number at all tiems. I got tired and did some research and calls. These are my findings... AIU stands for American International University... They have a web page. Their phone number free of charge is 1-888-379-5888. I call them back and talk to them is funny how the people on the 1-847 say, BOB Wonder left our phone number as contact number. Yeah and they only look at the their phone screen... aha, and be able to answer like: o yeah we are looking for Bob....sure....
Yeah, it's an online university scam. Never leaves a message, but an actual person gets on the line after a couple moments when you do answer. And yes, I've told them to stop but they keep calling. In fact, I've talked to 2 people in the last 10 minutes.

I have been called by this number 3Xdaily for 3 days. They are always asking for Monica. How do I get rid of them?
They call me at least 2-3 times a day, and it has continued for at least a month. (AIU)
Filled out a form for information, now they keep calling, and won't talk when I answer. I can not tell them not to call if they don't answer I want them to stop.
call all the time - don't have a clue who they are & I'm on the do not call list!
Calls all day everyday when I answer the phone noone says anything I called the number back to get my number removed from there list I get put on hold and noone ever comes back to the line.
Calls every few minutes. Sick of it.
calls at least 15-20 times a day. when you pick up no one answers. they never leave a message. even calling me on Sunday's at 8am. absolutley ridiculous. I've asked them to stop calling, take me off their list etc etc but am still getting the frickin calls!!!
i dont want this number calling me again if they do i will have a lawyer contact them for harassment
Some online education place. They call 10 times a day, even when no one answers. I've hung up on them and asked them not to call me. I've told them I did not sign up for any info. They still call me.
I applied for info on a Criminology course with Kaplin University. I recieved a call and spoke with a rep. on friday. It is now sat. and starting at 8am began recieving these calls. what a joke. and a poor example of what this university has to offer.
call allllll the time
they have been calling me for the last 2 months about two to three times a day. Thwy say they are from AIU but wont stop calling even after being told no
They call me at least 6 times a day beginning at 8 am and never leave a message. I've called back but can never get a person on the phone.
These jerks call everyday at least 15 times a day. They never leave a message and if I pick up they hang up? What a bunch of loosers. I think it is a computer programm that does the calling but then transfers the line to a operater when you pick up. I have tried calling back or waiting for the operator to talk with them to learn more information but I get nowhere. Their program is broken, I hope the keep wasting all their money on this dumb program and go broke, then at least they will stop calling me.
Call everyday starting at 8am and never leave a message, sometimes twice and this is my cell phone.
Calls me two/three times a day everyday. If I could find the exact location & person in the northwestern suburbs of chicago area, I'd shove their phone up their...You know where. Make them stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So much for national do not call list.
Will not stop calling, no message
This name calls me over 20 times a day. I am really sick of them. The sad thing about it is, they will not leave a message. Please put a stop to them.
I get over 50 calls a month from all sorts of scammers and or telemarketers. About 6 months ago I bought a 'Privacy Call Center' from 'http://www.digitone.com/' and it's incredible. You can list all your friends and loved ones numbers and even a specific area code and prefix's to allow, and they will ring and pass thru unobstructed. All others will be asked to enter an extension number of the party they want to speak to, and then will be disconnected. It catches every single unwanted call. I've had months of peace and quiet. Our number ends in a 0001 and it's obviously a big hit with these bottom feeders. I don't work for digitone and this is strictly an unsolicited testimonial. Good luck! *National DO NOT CALL list -

This harassed me many times a day.
this number calls my phone practically on an hourly basis and when i call i get no one
....this number called me today **I didn't answer** ~guess if it was that important that they would have left a message~ I googled it and this is the website I found and someone said something about it being a college inquiry. I believe that is what it is..I have been looking at colleges and the callers are really annoying and will stop at nothing to get your business!!
This number is constantly calling my house. Early morning & late at night I come home one day and they were on my Caller ID five times. Something should be done. They are really annoying. I am on a DO NOT CALL list and the government should fine them for harassment.
its a college inquiry..i calld them back and they took my name off tha list
I hate this number it constantly calls me and it is really starting to tick me off. Who the hell is it?
I receive a call from this # a couple times a day every few days in the past couple weeks. Before that it was a few times a day every day.
Whomever this is has completely disregarded my screamed instructions never to call again. They call every day, and on weekend nights.
I get calls from this number but they never say anything or leave any message. It's kinda annoying.
I would like to if any of you haveplaced your cell phones on the Do Not Call list. Telemarketers are free to cll cell phone numbers now. If you have not done so, it may help. I just started receiving phone calls from this number today (03.10.08), and I immediately GOOGLED the number to see what it was.
I just received a missed call from this number as well and they didn't leave a message... just a heads up that cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketers and you will be charged for these calls.
Nuts...started calling my cell a few weeks ago - they call every day. Never leave a message. Area code is Northern Chicago suburbs, Illinois.
someplace called AIU. (atlantic international university)
Yeah, I just got a call from this number. I live in Canada and I think the area code is in the states somewhere...
I didn't answer but they call often, probably trying to get people to sign up for online classes. I took one course online thru devry so it could be them or another college.
847-783-8966 keeps calling my cell phone. I never answer, they never leave mesasges. Very annoying.
846-783-8966 calls me about 10 times a day. My boyfriend finally got annoyed with it and answered it, and when he asked them what they were calling about they said that it was a private matter and couldn't talk to anyone about it but me...very strange, because if it was that imporant they could leave a message, or call my home number. I still don't answer it
Every morning around 9, even on weekends. I never answer my phone when I don't recognize the number, and they never left a message.Did anyone else who is receiving this call ever give their number to someone who was offering a work-at-home job off of craigslist or something? Because I did a few months ago, and once I found out it was a scam I had already given them my number.
They always call. I just wanna know who it is that is calling me.
been calling everyday,no message
This number calls my cell phone at all hours of the day, I have picked it up twice trying to find out who it is, but there is never any answer when I pick up. I have just started ignoring it.
