It would be nice if it weren’t necessary but you live and you learn. At the least I used my company contacts so they’ll lose all contact as I leave the org.
I’d blocked the marketers number so he used my name and org name to dial the switchboard and get forwarded to me.
I have the utmost respect for him trying that hard, and the product is actually good... if they tried less they’d have my custom.
