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.

|Male Caller was unsure of my company name. Red Flag right there.
He wanted to know if I used QuickBooks for my business.
I said NICELY "I am not interested, please remove me from your calling lists"
He RUDELY AND LOUDLY reply before hanging up was "No, I will call you Every Day!"
I tried to call them back to complain to a manager and phone line remains busy.
Reports on web show Data Com, Novatel, QuickBooks, and people trying to gain access to remote hack computers.
Callcenter.com shows over 312 complaints filed and reports that this guys threat to call everyday is for real (He did it to others multiple times a day for months)
I filed complaint with FCC but this number has complaints all the way back to 2011. I doubt they will do anything.
The caller ID shows only as San Antonio TX
I think With KilltheCalls info I am going to make this a new business and donate 1/2 proceeds to a charity. I like that you did that.|
|Doc posted about 719-225-8676|
|Solicitor Eric from ATX Global called me from 719-225-8676. I asked him to remove my phone number from his database. He said "there is not a DO NOT CALL list for businesses" I asked him if he keeps track of the businesses he calls and he said yes. I asked him again to remove my phone number from his database. He said you only get one call from me. I said, "I don't want any calls from you" and he got emotional and said "YOU AREN'T GOING TO OUTSMART ME.!!!!!!" He then said he won't call again and I told him he should make sure not to. Eric is an a** h*** and I would never do business with him or ATX Global. |

|Harrassing me trying to say I won a pkg from publishers clearing house. Called many times, will not stop|
|CiCi posted about 866-953-7906|
|These people call DAILY and sometimes two/three times a day. I'm on the Federal Do Not Call List, but that is apparently only for law-abiding telemarketers as scammers pay it no heed.
I've reported it several times to the FCC, but again, nothing is done about it.
This problem has been going on since January!
I have the exact same problem as another commenter: "Robocall left on my machine: "Hi this is Linda. We would like to discuss solutions regarding an important business matter with CapitalOne. Please call us back today at 1-866-953-7906 to discuss it further. Again the number is 1-866-953-7906. Thank you." Contacted capitalone and they said if 866-953-7906 isn't on their website contact pages, then it's not a capitalone number. Couldn't find 866-953-7906 on capitalone.com so this is a scam call. I think this scam works on you believing you've been called by the real capitalone (and you have not), you call 866-953-7906 back (and you should not), they ask you for an account number to look up what the important business matter is all about, then they ask you for personal info to verify that you are the legit owner of the account number you just gave them. Don't fall for it or the scammers will steal your money and possibly your ID."
DO NOT CALL THESE PEOPLE BACK, THEY ARE SCAMMERS!

|me posted about 408-920-5508|
|Very rude caller. Was interested in a job so was asking questions. Was told very sharply was I interested in the job. When told yes they told time needed. When told not all days and times worked they hung up. No wonder you have to call to different states. Nobody in your own state wants anything to do with you. Find a new line of work guy if you are unhappy answering simple questions about a job. |

|These people called one of our clients, and wanted them to return call, regarding their bank account numbers....I told the client NOT to give out any information to this phone number..|

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.
