Harrassing calls on a loan that is not mine

Someone used me as a reference on a loan they made.  They stopped paying on the loan and now the loan company calls me everyday.  I have given them the person's phone number to call and asked them to stop calling me.  I have no business transactions with this company at all.  What steps can I take to stop these calls?

Ask them to show you any valid proof that you actually either co-signed the loan or guaranteed the repayment of the pother person’s loan. Absent any such documents, you are under no legal obligation to cause that loan be repaid.
