Lol if you spent $10k on business coaching and only have CDs to show for it, you're just a plain slacker... don't feel bad, at least 80% of the population falls in this category, from my personal experience though I think it's closer to 98%.  hmmm kinda of makes you think about the 99% / 1% thing right?

Don't get sucked in by these Rich Dad people. It will cost you 10 thousand dollars or more and all you'll have to show for it is a bunch of stupid CD's.

They called me several times, then finally I just called them right back and politely asked them to remove me from their list.  He promptly did with no hassle.Note: Initially it was a "your call can be monitored" girl who sounded like a real person, but then went straight to a person after that.

I just got a call from that number (1st time) a few minutes ago and found this thread via google search... If it's r.d.p.d. then yeah it would make sense bec i had registered to attend one of their seminars a few months ago but forgot & missed it.  I too, don't care to receive any phone calls from them. I cant do it right now but I plan to try and call the number back and see if I can speak to an actual person and have them remove me from their calling list -or- put me on their DO NOT CALL LIST.

I got the call tonight and I felt in the mood to harass them for 4 minutes and 33 seconds. I informed them I was recording the entire conversation on my cell phone for legal protection. I rarely receive telemarketing calls now. It is a company called "Protocall" or "Prontocall" (or something similar) out on Montreal. When asked for a Canadian Business Registration Number  (BN Number), they were unable to provide it saying they don't have such a number (lies). I reminded them the call was being recorded for security purposes on my end and asked if they are aware of laws with Revenue Canada in Canada with regards to company registration and they did not know. I told them I will be replaying the recorded conversation for Revenue Canada as "a company operating in Canada possibly without a BN number and failing to provide this number when requested." Just something to make them think "who is this guy?". They work on "behalf of Canada Trust insurance." Key word "on behalf," NOT "for." Contact Canada Trust at 1-888-298-3608 to further inquire about their customer database and what third parties they give the information to. Also request to be removed from all their datalists, and if they tell you that you will only be removed for 3 years, demand that your information be removed permanently. They hate having to do this but they can. They won't tell you this.While speaking to them, I was on Google confirming information. I got the customer service number for Canada Trust, and then I asked them how the information was received since I do not disclose my information to third parties. I was told it came from CitiBank. Contact Citibank at 1-800-387-1616 and do the same as you did with Canada Trust (no TRUST obviously). I have a recording from 4 months ago from Citibank where I informed them my information is never to be supplied to a third party, and they said it would not be. Should be interesting when I call Citibank tomorrow and play that conversation back at them and see what they say since it is a violation of what they had agreed to with me. Anyhow, the guy on the phone was getting very annoyed with me for asking so many specific questions (because it takes away from his commissions and incentives for "selling" these "promotional offers" to customers). I used to work in the telecommunications industry in Australia so I know how these companies operate and yes, they are evil. Worst thing you can do is hang up, because they just log you as a "call back." You need to be specific in how you speak to them when asking questions. TAKE control of the conversation and don't allow them to cut in. You do not have to be a "polite Canadian." They are not trained to deal with these sorts of circumstances or customers (like me).Feel free to give them a hard time, but present them with difficult questions and always demand to speak to their supervisor as these phone-drones often don't have a brain or the knowledge to give the correct answers. You can also request the contact number of their "VP of Marketing and Sales" because these telemarketing companies all have one. Yes, this does work, and the VPs hate nothing more than a customer contacting them directly.NEVER SAY ANYTHING THAT RESEMBLES A "YES" OR "YAH" OR "OKAY" because they use anything that sounds like you are agreeing to them to hold you to whatever they are selling. Yes, this is another insiders' trick of the telemarketing industry.Hope this helps. We need to fight back as consumers to shut down these companies. I love having worked in the industry just long enough to learn all their trade secrets and then quit and use them against them.

The number 514-227-8723 (Quebec) called me today I don't answer any number I don't know, no time for that. It may be City Bank or not the main point is that all Credit Card companies and department stories give our phone number and details out to many marketing places so they can phone us and sell us stuff. They all act like they care about your personal information and fraud yet they will give you up for a few dollars and give your information out like it was candy. They need to stop giving out our personal information without written approval from us instead of the other way around where by we have to opt out, I didn't opt in so I should not have to opt out.Regards

This is not a scam ~ it is a call from an inmate, being directed to you from an outside company, probaby Correctional Billing Services. If you listen closely, you can hear the person state their name when you answer, before you accept the call. If you know no one in jail (or think you'd never know anyone that would end up there), then it is probably an inmate trying to call someone and they accidently transposed a number or is simply dialing a number that was previously owned by someone else. If you get the call and don't want to accept it, simply ignore it, it's as easy as that.

Here's the deal...It's a legit service being used properly by those detained for whatever reason and abused by others hence all the confusion.  Its an '866' toll free number similar to 1800 numbers owned a company that sells its 'phone services' to jails/prisons nationwide.  People incarcerated for whatever reason that can generally only make collect 'outgoing' calls to inform others of their situation, make arrangements for bail, etc. If the facility a person is detained in subscribes to the 'service' and a detainee makes an 'outgoing' call, honestly or otherwise, people called receive the recorded message mentioned.  Prices are astronomical, taking advantage of those locked up.  Generally if its a legit purpose, the honest caller will call back "when they can" or reach out to someone else.  This post doesn't tell you what to do when you receive the call, just what's going on around it...Use common sense and best judgement when deciding.

Did it ever occur to you, that maybe... just maybe in some crazy scheme to turn a profit, phone companies re-use phone numbers??  Do you think it's possible your number may not be a virgin?  Your phone number has probably had many different owners.  Especially with all the pre-paid "throw away" phones sold now that are so popular with criminals and drug dealers, you're a fool to think otherwise.I've been in jail many times and I have friends in jail right now.... many jails are using this type of for-profit company to handle inmate calls these days.  These companies are better equipped than many small county jails to handle the monitoring, staffing, recording and storing of these calls (which, by the way people, these conversations can be used against you and the inmate!! don't say nothing! they keep recordings of every call made for years, all jails and prisons do).  This company services jails and prisons all over the country, not from one particular county or city.  It is legit.  It could be argued they scam a guy out of $9.99 for a 50 cent call, but that is capitalism for you at it's best; the demand is high, the jails are full and they can charge as much as they want because families will pay it.

Yes, exactly. I was getting called by this number repeatedly. Sometimes ten times in an evening. . I listened very carefully and heard the name "Robyn".

I knew it was a mistake because I had JUST GOTTEN THE NEW CELL NUMBER AND HAD NOT GIVEN IT TO ANYONE YET. So, don't pick it up.

just an fyi to ALL of you...the number and/or the calls are not, i repeat NOT a scam.  I garuntee, SOMEONE from a jail SOMEWHERE is trying to call YOUR NUMBER.  If you are 100% certain you know nobody in jail, dont accept the call.  If there is a chance you MIGHT know someone in jail, accept the call if you want to talk to them, if you dont...then dont accept or accept one time and tell them not to call you from jail.  OR maybe your phone number USED TO BE SOMEONE ELSE'S PHONE NUMBER.  Or the inmate got numbers transposed...But rest assured, as someone that receives these calls due to counciling inmates, this number is VALID.  It is not always accurate concerning where the call is coming from but it is ALWAYS someone in a jail facility that is trying to talk to someone.

It's not a scam.  At least it's not a scam in the sen that you've described.  It's actually a call originating from an inmate who is trying to reach you by calling collect from a Texas state jail.  I received a call from this number yesterday, and sure enough it was someone who I knew who was recently arrested and was being kept in the Brazoria County Jail.  The scam is the amount of money you will be charged should you choose to accept the call.

It is not a scam, it is a call placed by an inmate in a correctional institute. If you go to your state's department of corrections site they should have a web page citing what call company they use. Yes, you will be charged if you accept the call. Yes you can go figure out which company your state (or the state the inmate is calling from) is using and ask them to block your phone number. It is your right to have your phone number blocked and the company will willingly do it. Mississippi's MDOC website says that they use Global Tel inc. which consists of 3 different companies working in different states to allow people in: Jail, prison, or a prison work system to call their loved ones. You can set up an account for about 25-50 dollars so that your loved one or friend can call you through that system, but they have to be processed and you need to know what facility they are in. If they are in jail (for DUI, driving w/o a license, under-aged drunkenness ext.) you'll have to wait for them to call you back as (at least in MS) you won't be able to figure out which jail they are in.My boyfriend is in jail waiting for his court hearing, everyone makes mistakes, and many of you have broken the law (you just haven't gotten caught or got off w/o time). To some this seems like a scam, but for those who know and love people who are in prison, being able to talk with them is a blessing. I'd  rather hearing my loved ones voice than using the money to go to a movie

When my husband called me from jail last year and I accepted the call it said there would be a charge of $9.99 to accept, for a maximum of 15 minutes. After the call I then received a text message asking if I wanted to subscribe to a $9.99 monthly service to be able to receive future calls, otherwise I would no longer be able to receive future calls to my cell number. Since I knew my husband was getting out the next day I text back "no", after which he could no longer call my cell, but if it was a case where someone you knew was going to be there for awhile it would be worth signing up for the service as opposed to paying $9.99 for each individual call even if your provider DOES allow more than one call without having to sign up for the service... I don't know how long it takes before you can accept a call from the jail again- a month? 6 months? A year?-- but yesterday my husband turned himself in for missing his court date last week, and I noticed that while i was waiting to bail him out he called me, so even tho I didn't answer I know that obviously my phone can receive calls from the jail again. It just seems like if you don't accept to pay for the monthly the first time it shouldn't just block your number for some unknown period of time after that, it should offer you the chance to sign up for the service the next time someone calls, cause who knows what could happen where that person gets arrested again, or someone else does, and you can't even receive their call because you declined to sign up for the monthly service the first time :-(.... This WAS over a year ago when this happened, so maybe they have changed things-- and he was able to call me yesterday so obviously after some period of time you can accept calls again, and different providers will have their own policies of course, but for the most part if someone calls you from the jail and you expect to hear from them again anytime soon after that, you would probably want to sign up for the monthly service.

I am sorry you had a bad experience and feel this is a scam. I to recieved these same calls for over a week so I investigated online and found out it is not a scam. My son is incarcerated and he was the one calling. I contacted "Correctional Billing Services" and prepaid for what is a basically a phone card. My son can only call my number unless I list another one on my account. Of course since it is my dime he will only be contacting me! He simply picks up the phone and dials my number and we are connected. No operators, going to his facility to purchase phone cards, or mailing money orders. In essence this is a wonderful service for people with loved ones incarcerated. Please be mindful and remember that not everyone in jail is a bad person. Some are even innocent. Alot of people make mistakes as well. I love my son and he made a bad choice and is serving his time. He is a good boy who just turned 21 and has no priors. He was gainfully employed, owned a home & car, went to college, paid taxes, voted, had no kids,etc. He simply chose the wrong friends who were not interested in achieving anything he has in his 21years and wound up in the wrong place at the wrong time. This service helps people like my family stay united. You see, my son is not the only one doing time.......his family is also serving time until his release.

Hey dude.

You are absolutely right! People speak when they don't know better... but it's ok everyone has to learn.  There are two different type of people that will use this number... 1. Good people that made a mistake and are now paying for that mistake, they do not know the tricks of the trade on how to utilize the process on how to contact a loved one once they are in jail. They have been given this number to call because the person they are trying to contact will not accept collect calls. Once you set up your phone to accept calls from a correctional facility you will not have to use this service. 2. For the people that are getting burned by someone that is in jail....Maybe these people KNOW the trick of the trade and are calling either random numbers or the old number to someone they once knew. Like it was said before, if you don't know them... don't accept the call. It's that SIMPLE... be smart and learn something before you comment. It makes you as smart as you look :) To btk...

You need to know that people who see the inside of a jail are not only inmates! N E way, I have friends and family that have been incarcerated and the only phones available are set up through an outside billing source. Actually, their first phone call is FREE but, alot of people don't know this since they are too distraught to think at the moment. All you have to do is listen for the name of the caller, don't accept the call, then check your local jail or go online and use inmate locator service for any state you think this individual is in. People, get educated on stuff before you post misleading or ignorant information! As a matter of fact, nobody's opinion of what I have just said will bother me; especially if it's negative. I speak from experience and by the way, did I mention, I got a call today. My child, poor gal, is in trouble once again. Pray for us. :)

This is NOT a scam. This number is from an inmate trying to call you from jail or prison. My boyfriend, who had never had any legal issues or done any jail time prior to this, called me from this number because he was taken to jail for driving without insurance and the car was towed, which is Texas law. He was calling me to let me know what was going on because he never came back from work and I was getting really worried. I was extremely shocked to receive a call from an inmate, because no one I know gets into trouble like that, but apparently it happens because the inmate turned out to be my boyfriend. I would advise you to answer the call, because it could be a friend or a loved one trying to let you know what is going on and that they are in trouble. Yes they do charge $9.99 to accept the call, which the recording tells you UP FRONT and gives YOU the option to either accept the call or hang up, just like a collect call.

This "is" a scam! And an old one at that. Although "you" have a friend who is an inmate, there are others like me who don't. The phone companies have warned about this scam for many years. I learned about this scam over 20 years ago when someone called my home and gave my brother's name. He actually sounded like my brother and gave his name. It wasn't him because he walked through the door. By that time I had already accepted the call and the person disconnected. Later, I had a lot of charges on my phone that I had to have the phone company remove. This is a trick used by the inmate. They use the opportunity to commit crimes or call their friends and family and you get charged.Read this LA County news article: The scheme involves inmates placing phone calls from inside prison and then convincing whoever picks up the phone to dial a number with a special call forwarding prefix. That prefix will then forward all incoming calls made to the victim’s phone to the scammer’s phone including collect calls made by inmates who want to avoid the charges.Deputy Robert Bacey says the scams helps circumvent the jail house phone system’s automatic greeting.“When an inmate in the Los Angeles County system calls you, there is a pre-recorded message that says, ‘An inmate from the LA County Sheriff’s department is trying to contact you via a collect call, are you willing to accept those charges?’”, says Bacey.Officials say anyone who has been a victim of the scheme should contact their service provider, or opt-out of the call forwarding by dialing another prefix.(©2010 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc.

You are correct, Correctional Billing.     Someone calling from county jail or state prison.    Usually the inmate figures out how to get a one time to that number free call for about 45 seconds asking the person to set up an account with correctional billing so they can talk for about 15 minutes at a charge usually around $2.70  ro $3.00.    I understand the fear of a scam but if they will think for a minutes who might have gotten arrested after a few days most people figure it out.   The inmate of the county or the jail has to have money to purchase stamps to write so someone was reaching out to ask to tell a family member or get help.I have had an account with correctional billing and you pay an amount of your choosing and then when they have made the number of calls to use of the money they have to wait until you put some more money on.  It is sorta like a prepaid phone.I hope this clarfies.   The 9.99 amount must be in a state where the jail or prison is getting a big kickback.   I wished I did not know this information but I do due to family members so I would say just beaware that it may be a call from a relative needing you.  It is confusing because you are expecting it to be like a local area code and a familiar number from your local area but it is a 1-866 number.  You can google Correctionalbillingservices.com and contact them regarding the phone call you received they should be able to tell you what facility called your number.

I've been getting daily calls from this number. No voicemails. I was only able to catch two of those calls. One was yesterday. When I answered, a man asked for me by name, and said he was calling from CASH FOR BUSINESS. I explained that I was at work and I asked if there was a number I could call him back at, later. He said he'd call me today at 1pm, instead. I got the call at 12:40pm and no one was on the other line. Literally, there wasn't anyone there. Then I got no phone call at 1pm. Like everyone else, every time I call, I get the Verizon recording, saying the number is disconnected.

AES is probably the most unprofessional company I have ever dealt with.  I pay my son's student loans and they tried to start collecting before he even finished school.  They actually called him three times in his dorm room saying he had to start repaying the loans because he was no longer in school.  It apparently meant nothing that the number they were calling was his dorm room.We then applied for forebearance.  When my son faxed the paperwork he kept the receipt showing that the fax had gone through, but AES adamantly claimed they never received it.We have two different loans with them, but only one account number.  I mailed two checks, in separate envelopes, with separate invoices, but they applied both checks to the same loan, making us delinquent on the 2nd loan.  Of course they applied the payments to the smaller loan so the late fee on the bigger loan was larger.  I fought this for three months before giving up and paying the extra money to make the loan current.  During this fiasco my son engaged in a verbal battle with one of their representatives and beat him up so bad he finally admitted, off the record, that it is company policy at AES to never admit they are wrong.  If we applied that practice at my business we probably would no longer be in business.

I can relate to the proper paperwork being sent in.  I have been dealing with them for over a year! I was paying back my student loans but unfortunately, I am now disabled and not able to keep up the total amount each month. I have been making good faith payments while working with them on the discharge paperwork designed for people like me who would love to be working full time or even part time, but not able to do so through no fault of my own. I and my doctor filled out all the necessary paperwork and sent it in. They never received it. Sent it in again via certified mail, called a couple of weeks later and they said they never received it. I had proof they received it! Got that taken care of only to get a letter back stating there was missing and incorrect information on the paperwork.  My doctor used the same sheet they sent back and corrected and initialed the paperwork. They sent it back again saying there were more items that were not correct. I have been sent back the same paperwork five (5) times. Each time it is corrected, sent back via certified mail. After the third time, I called the company and was told that everything has to be exact. I understand this concept but could not understand and told the representative "How is it that the person who is reviewing this document cannot find all the mistakes the first time around and instead cost me a $40 co-pay each time I have to go back to the doctor and fix the "mistakes?"  There is more to this story but that is the jist of it. I really hate dealing with them!  Of course they try to use the tactic that all this will be affecting my credit. They can't hurt my credit more than it already is. Being unable to work and waiting for disability approval already shot the credit. This is also why I do everything by cash now. I know, that hurts credit too but if I want something, I will save for it rather than buy it when I don't have the money for it and hope that I will in the future.

i was in school trying to get loans from a previous school deferred and 3 times i sent proper paperwork and three times they said there was something wrong with it, and never put it through. they never returned phone calls, they were never helpful on the phone. they have different numbers for perkins and stafford loans and you constantly get the run around on the phone. they told me once i was in deferrment, it was retroactive and all of the negative credit info would be erased. that definately was a lie. i was delinquent for almost 2 semesters because thats how long it took them to actually process my paperwork. it was a ridiculous experience. i dont think they are a scam, i just think they are a***oles.

Actually, once deferrment or forbearance is granted, your loans are no longer delinquent.  However, the reports of non-payment on your credit history DO remain.  The proper thing to do, would have been to request deferrment or forbearance as soon as you realized you could not make a payment, AND before the payment is due.  If this is not done, it is considered irresponsibility, so the it hurts your credit score.  I am not passing any sort of judgement, I have done the same thing, and taken a hit on my credit score.  I am just providing based on what I was told, and what makes sense, as well.

Having dealt with AES in the past, and having to deal with them every month, I can say that they do have the worst customer service and procedures. I was told once that "we don't have managers here" when I demanded to speak to a manager regarding my account.I have reported them to the BBB, and to the PA general attorney, but the fact is this: AES is the for-profit company started by the Pennsylvania government, almost the entire board is made of senators and representatives. It doesn't matter what it does, they're protected by the government.

This is not a scam, it IS AES.  They use this number to make the call and leave a message with a different number for you to return the call.  This is a no call back number, it is just used to keep you from getting their direct phone number.Their collection info does not match the online info you will find for your a/c.  I have complained about this to no avail.  I have reported them to the State of Fla. and I am working on a report to the State of Pa.It takes them 7-10 business days to get your info updated.  They require you use THEIR form if you have to drop a class and go below the min. hours to stay on deferrement in order to get BACK ON deferrment the next term.  In the meantime they require you to make a payment because you dropped a class for a month or less time.They are unreasonable and a lot of the people are rude.  They don't let you speak and make sure they have all the info needed as they are too busy making sure they have update info on you.  I've tried emailing them and they respond with the same garbage that they tell you on the phone.They DO report you for non-payment to the credit bureau's, and once the deferrment is reinstated, they DON'T go back to the credit bureau and update the information to remove the late payments.  They just stop reporting you at that time.

What about people whom have tried to consolidate their student loans (AES-American Education Services, Direct Loans, and Sallie Mae), but are having the lack of cooperation and/or assistance to a graduate who is trying to do the right thing?  But what happens is the person who is trying to reach out (the employee and/or representative) to that particular former student, who may have been struggling so bad due (like many current and/or former students) to these awful economic conditions, but is given a guilt trip like "if you don't send money sir/ma'am or set up a payment arrangement, we will notify one of the 3 credit reporting agencies.....", what can that person do financially or physically resolve the situation? Because when a person is trying to get a job, but they get denied due to their credit, what do you do at that point? In the long it doesn't help either side. The former student doesn't get the opportunity to do the right thing by paying their student loans, and the institutions on the other side don't get any type of income coming in. The street has to work both ways.......The former student wants "peace of mind", and the institution wants to balance the books. Thanks
