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.

|five calls a day. no one there they just hang up. I am done. I am getting hit every day with different numbers. The fed's DNC is a big joke. |
|Susan posted about 213-514-9625|
|Phone rings, you answer, no one says anything, they then hang up. Call the number and a recording says to press any digit to be removed from the list, says will take 24 hours, they call every day over and over again, same story each time...so tired of this|
|Spuds posted about 904-410-6014|
|Received call a few minutes ago. Caller ID showed # (904) 410-6014 Florida.
A recording of a man with a heavy accent (India or elsewhere in the Middle East). The recorded voice said that this call was a second request for me to contact him at the same number that was in the caller ID. He said that legal action by the Federal Government & Treasury Department was being taken against me and I had to call to get it settled. Never in the message did he state my name, address or anything.
Wanting to let some steam off, I called the number back and a live person answered "Treasury Department", again with a heavy accent. I ripped him a new a-hole and he started right back at me.
This is a big time scam of some sorts, probably to coax people into sending them money after they try and convince you that you owe.|
|Marvin posted about 505-634-5038|

|ND posted about 408-654-7455|
|I am getting lot of annoying calls and useless emails for last few weeks. Most likely, someone used my information posted on craigslist and bombarding me with it.
One of the numbers I got calls from is (408)654-7455. Normally, I do not pick up calls from unknown numbers, but since (408) is local to where I live, I picked it up. The person on the other end started talking nonsense. I asked him his name, but he did not provide. Had to hang him and lock him forever. Going forward, I will not pick any unknown 408 numbers either.|

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.
