    A guy answered saying he was a consumer firm and wanted me to answer some questions. When i told him politely to remove my number and name from his contact list he said no you need to answer the questions it will only take a minute. So i started shouting at him and he said dont shout at me and i said well don't tell me NO.
    then less that 5 mins later got a call from a woman this time told he the same thing but she just put the phone down.
    i have just received another one that is 3 calls in less than 10 minutes. What i asked for my number to be removed he just went silent for then eventually put the phone down
