Policy Bazaar - Phone Calls

I was planning to take Term Plans and I have planned to take HDFC Life Term Plan.
I knew HDFC Life details and also I knew the details of few other Life Insurance Company Term Plans like Religare,ICICI and Kotak.

I clicked Policy Bazaar.com advertisement in some website suggesting to compare term plans and this was my mistake to enter their website.It asked for contact details before revealing the information(though those information will be already available in the each Life Insurance Website itself) and when I gave my Mobile Number. The Website said, Your number is listed in "Dont Disturb Category". You need to accept and allow Policy Bazaar to call you regarding policies and there was an "Accept" Button and I did not click the button and closed the website.

Then after that I am getting hell of calls from Policy bazaar asking to buy insurance(Insurance is a Subject matter of solicitation) and how much ever times I explained I am not interested in their services. The calls continued.

Meanwhile I bought the Online Policy in HDFC Myself and I informed Policy Bazaar(This call was on the 25th day after visiting their website) that I already bought insurance from HDFC and asked them not to call. To my suprise, they asked if I bought via Policy Bazaar link(Am I a fool to not know Online Insurance and who offers the insurance and where the original link would be present?) I said I bought via Direct HDFC Life link from their website. They are then asking me to give my policy number and to give credit to Policy Bazaar and I shouted and said, No way as I bought myself.. They keep arguing and saying policy bazaar as helped me? wow great!! Its because of policy bazaar that i came to know about policy.

I shouted back saying, HDFC Life is not unknown and policy bazaar is the one who showed path and light to HDFC?
I already know HDFC Life and its plan and I cant give any credit to policy bazaar and asked them not to call again

But Still I am getting Two Calls daily. Policy Bazaar Telecallers or whoever they are acting like stupids and not understanding.I feel if they dont change their business strategy and plan, they will end up soon.

I know there are many other who had experienced this and sitting quite out there.I am writing this to create awareness among other customers.
