The call came in at 9:05 AM and the caller said they would transfer me to their supervisor because the warranty on my car had expired. A female came on the line and I asked her to please remove me from their list. She then said "OK" and hung up. Not 30 seconds had passed when the exact same number called once again and the exact same scenario. I told the new caller, a male "supervisor" that I had just asked someone less than a minute ago to please stop calling. He started getting rude and sad that they would "try" and I told him I would report them to the FTC and he said I could do whatever I wanted because they cannot do anything to them. He hung up the call after that.
