Am I blacklisted because I called Goldman Sachs?

I'm a junior in highschool who's looking for information regarding investment banking. So I had a great idea and decided to call Goldman Sachs and ask about target schools and if they had any internship opportunities for highschoolers. I sounded nervous on the phone because I was nervous. I didn't give my name. 

Can I get blacklisted for doing this?

Yeah. Give up on your dreams of ever working in high finance. It's over for you.

listen to me and read this post carefully

unplug your phone and internet. make sure you have an alibi for the time period you were on the phone. change your name ASAP and move to a different city for the next few weeks to be sure. while there, get a haircut and change your appearance.

wait a few weeks for this to die down. if and ONLY IF this dies down in the next few weeks you can make a trip to your nearest GS office to do some recon work undercover. make sure you are dressed in a suit and tie, and print off some fake business cards. pretend you are on the phone on your way into the building, hang up just as you reach the reception and ask them if they remember a call from any intern. at this point you should feel like an absolute fool, but it was worth it and hopefully teaches you a lesson about how no one gives a shit or will remember your call (ever).
