In the last 36 hours, I have been called 4 times by some company that wants to set up a repayment schedule for a defaulted student loan.

I do not have a defaulted student loan. My student loans are paid.

They ask me if the last four numbers of my social are XXXX to which I reply no. They then say the will "make a note of it" and take me off their list.

I was polite the first time someone called. The next person called about an hour later and my patience slipped. I thought it was resolved, though. The next day, a third person called and my patience was in short supply. He again reassured me that he would "make a note of it."

I got another call but ignored it and they left a message. It was the FIRST person who called. Again.

I figure I'll just continue to ignore them. But, is that the right thing to do? My name is pretty common and obviously, the SSN is incorrect. Thoughts?
