discover sells phone numbers

For the last few days, once a day, some "unknown caller" has tried to reach me on my cell phone. I answered it tonight, and was asked if I wanted to take a survey. I said I would if they told me how they got the number... "Discover Card provided us with a list." I asked if they were aware it was a cell phone and they were spending my money as we spoke, and the guy on the other end kindly told me he'd remove me from their list ... and then hung up.

Could I have my ten cents to be reimbursed for the call?

Nah, it's not really necessary, but ANNOYING nonetheless. I believe a nastygram is in DiscoverCard's future.
