I have currently a job that I, for the first time of my employment history, really enjoy and I will probably be staying here for some year. I got this job through an online job search website. Upon being hired, I changed the settings of that account so that possible recruiters will know that I am now not actively looking for a job.

Then one of my regular working days, a female recruiter phoned me and asking if I am willing to have a phone interview. I asked where they got my contact information, and they said that they got it from that website. I politely said that I am not looking for a job (like what is stated on my account) and politely declined her offer, but she insisted the interview. Since I'm on my break, I allow it, just to test if I can still manage to do a decent interview.

Things on the interview gets random sometimes, and the I always point out to her that I am not looking for a job. After some 15 minutes, they asked me when is the date I can start to work. Wow, just wow. That is when I became angry and tell her that I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A JOB AT THE MOMENT. Then I ended the call.

A day after, the same number called but a different caller. The caller asked for apologies his fellow recruiter done yesterday, and I said, it's alright, apology accepted, and I explained my side. And after a while he insisted if I want to work to their company and it goes on and on like the previous day.

After I blocked that number, they managed to use another number to recruit me. My coworkers are now making this as a laughing matter and even my superiors, instead of being threatened to the fact some company wants to recruit one of their [precious] employee, found me shouting to my phone, hilarious.

I found this annoying and serious to the point [ that after one week and this continues, ] I want towill report this to the authorities. This is the 4th incident.

Edit: I forgot to mention they also keep sending messages on my personal email.
