notified the caller my number is on the do not call registry. caller argued she was not telemarketing, was not selling anything, and was calling to offer her services. I asked her to remove my number from the list, and she insisted she was not calling to sell me anything. I asked her to acknowledge that I asked her to remove me from the list, and she just kept arguing that she was calling to offer her services. I insisted that she acknowledge what I said, and finally she said she would take me off their list. This took almost 4 minutes.

I told them they were in violation of the "do not call list" and I was told to "knock it off" and then the gentleman hung up.
