Stop Telemarketing Calls with KilltheCalls.com
Welcome to KillTheCalls.com. This site was launched in 2007 as a resource for consumers who were fed up with the aggravating calls they received from telemarketers, debt collectors and political recordings. Our intent is to help you with the the information you need to try and stop these calls once and for all.
We have recently launched a place for consumers to post their own telemarketing horror stories, complaints and other pertinent information about these callers. Since doing so, we have been overwelmed by how many responses we have recieved. It seams no matter what we try, unwanted callers are still reaching everyone, almost everyday. Below you can see the latest phone numbers to be commented on.

|Someone from this number called my mother's phone. She doesn't answer calls where she doesn't know the number calling in, and the didn't leave a message. I'm puzzled about the type of call, and just who made the call. I should add that all of us, and all the phones (both land-line and cell) are on the do not call list.|

|Received two calls from this number today. First was at 08:00 am, they didn't leave a message. The second call was at 08:37 am. I answered and a woman with a thick accent stated that she was calling for Genpac (GenPact?) attempting to collect a debt on behalf of Old Navy. She claimed she could "buy me six months of time" on my account, and started naming off payment amounts spread over six months. I told her no thank you and to never call me again. She continued talking at me so I disconnected the call.

|They are trying to solicit college tuition to someone I don't even know. Mary someone. I am already on the federal do not call list and have told them so 12-15 times since last August. I have never had any business with them, and have asked repeatedly for their do not call paperwork to no avail. I have tried to find out about them but it is gonna cost some money. I have talked to the Security of State in Colorado where the number is from and they tell me they will send me the info. We will see. I have contacted a private detective friend of mine to see what info he can gather, guess I will have to pay him as well at least the money will go to my friend instead of a stranger. BUT I assure you I am continuing with a small claims filing no matter how much it costs me. I have had it. I have even tried to let my daughter talk to them and they still keep calling, even tho we keep telling them we are on the do not call list. It is at all times of the day and night. as late as 9pm here I guess it is only 8pm there. And all through the day when we are in business meetings.|

The History on Kill The Calls
As of January 2010 the KilltheCalls.com website is under new ownership. The new owners remain committed to helping consumers stop telemarketers just as the previous ownership did.Here is some information provided by the previous ownership and some of the history behind KilltheCalls.com:
When KilltheCalls.com was first built it was done so as a direct result to a post made on our other website (YouStoleMyTime.com). Within the post labeled "Revenge of the Telemarketers" we described an incident wherein we had gotten so tired of one of the egregious telemarketers who would not leave me alone that we sued them and received a court judgment against that firm.
Subsequently, somebody at said firm decided to sign us up for tons of spam (including some rather unpleasant porn) and referred me to all sorts of mortgage lead generating websites so we were inundated with even MORE telemarketing phone calls.
Why We Started Suing Telemarketers
A few years ago, we became supremely sick of the massive number of telephone calls we would receive from telemarketers. Our standard response was to curse them and hang up on them. As we all know, such tactics do not work. Those companies that are attempting to sell you a new garage door, a mortgage refinance, a new furnace or who knows what else are persistent. They will keep calling until they make a sale. As we all do, in frustration we looked on the internet for information. we learned that one can actually sue telemarketers. Unfortunately, many of the websites we found will only give a little bit of information and then ask you to buy some sort of e-book or purchase a subscription to their website. That being the case, we delved into the law and figured it out ourselves.
This website was created to provide said information and to do such without charging users as do many of the sites out there that discuss the particulars of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
We have adding some basic tools to the site, such as spreadsheets for logging telemarketing calls, sample scripts to go through when receiving telemarketing calls, a state by state (and in some cases, county level data) listing of applicable laws and small claims court information, etc.
We deeply appreciate everything the previous ownership has done for this site and remain committed to helping consumers with the fight to stop the telemarketing calls.
The information provided on KilltheCalls.com is intended for informational purposes only, please read our legal notice here.
The KilltheCalls.com website is now under new ownership. The new owners remain dedicated to stopping telemarketers and all their dirty tricks. In the coming months you will likely see a number of changes come to this site we thank you for your patience and understanding as we release these changes.
