156K spam text-sending firm to ICO: It wasn't us, Commissioner

All it needs is one victim to gp along with the call. When they then receive a follow up from the product company - then the link is confirmed.

The product company could insist the victim consented by going along with the cold call in the first place - but that seems like self-incrimination.
