    We've all had to deal with the same thing. Your phone rings 24/7 and shows no sign of stopping, but if ever you should pick up, all you hear is the incessant yabbering of a telemarketer or nothing at all. You're infuriated by the anonymous calls jamming your phone line. Is there some way of finding out who is on the other end? Do you pick up or leave it ringing? Who is calling?

    1. LB reported number 2029217300 as Tara Lunsford (agent id 2451)

      I recieved the same exact phone call. I called my student loan company and they recommended I call Navient. So I called them and they said there is not such lawsuit. So it is definetely a scam. They asked for my birth date and user name right away. I wouldn't give it to them.

    3. Mike Spears has been reported with number 8888527330 as Cost trap

      Exact same person and message as others reported above. A complete scam as student loan forgiveness if you research it is only for very specific people in certain lines of work as well as affected by natural disaster making school closure ect. Do not fall for ANY scams regarding student loan forgiveness unless directly from government and through their website and number.
