Consumer Complaint: Nelnet ( XXXX ) continues to call my mobile phone from an autodialer, despite my repeated requests to be removed from the autodialer. I have informed them that they are calling a mobile phone, and that I want to be removed from the autodialer, and to not call during my working hours ( XXXX PST ). They continue to have me on an autodialer, calling during my working hours, and lied to me today saying despite my request to not be autodialed, that they had the right to continue to do so. They have called at least 6 times since my initial request.. about once per week. When I reminded them of the TCPA regulations, they told me those weren’t real, and if my account was delinquent, they can autodial me. I informed them that they may only HAND DIAL my mobile phone number once I inform them they are calling a mobile and request to be removed, they must comply. The man continued to argue that I was incorrect. I used to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, I am quite well versed on TCPA regulations.
