I don't know much about your telephone company there but here in US, I can put a block on a phone number for a person I don't want to keep calling me. Ask your phone company if you can do this. If not, do you have caller ID? If so and you know it's them, just ignore them, maybe they will get the hint.

First try to check your number? See that you cant find it anywere online or in a phonebook. Their is also a big possibilty that they get your number of 'thirds'. When you fill in your information on a form ( a shop by example) than their is sometimes in small lines an agreement that they can sell your information to 'thirds'. Be carefull at giving information to shops. i hope this was helpfull, Sorry for my bad Englisch

Get a whistle and blow it in their ear. They won't call back.
