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.

|Tom Allen posted about 602-761-1492|
|This jerk has called literally hundreds of times and we try to be nice to all solicitors the first time and tell them we are not interested and PLEASE take us off of your call list. This guys is rude - tries to guilt you or otherwise scam you into purchasing a software that you can buy on line for half of what he is selling it for. If you hang up on him he calls right back and hangs up on you or waits a few minutes gets back in to the operator and tells them he is just trying to earn a living. If he is not happy with any of your rejections he calls back after hours and hangs up as many as ten times in a row straight to my voice mail Beyond belief |

|They call up to three times a day on my business phone line. I have requested to be on a do not call list and not interested in their refinancing offers.|
|Hoda Besheir posted about 301-232-132|
|This company has been harassing me for 5 years trying to sell me a phone service. They got my phone number firstly through an illegal way by offering a friend of mine a special offer if she recommended others. She gave them my number without my permission. One of their reps embarrassed me in their first call to me and took my credit number. Few months later (which was in 2012) when my subscription ended I submitted an application to stop calling me but they never did. Now they keep calling me from numbers in US. I keep blocking these numbers but numbers never end. Their other numbers are: 818-532-9820 & 917-828-8520|

|These are the dreaded "Hi, this is Julie from Rewards Redemption and because you visited one of our websites you may qualify for a $100 gift card" recording.
I have asked them 35 times now for them to remove me from their list yet they keep calling. I have some of the calls recorded where they actually say that if I answered one of their calls then that puts me back on their list!
They call from 470-298-3254, 857-444-0768 and many other numbers.
In the recording they say that they cannot stop the automated robocaller. The full company name is Energize Marketing, 2035 Calumet St. Clearwater FL 33765|
|Linda posted about 800-773-2767|
|These telemarketers for the Red Cross, get money for every person who says yes to donating. I block the calls now. I will go in and donate when I can. It takes me a good 3 weeks to build up my iron to do it, and I know they desperately need the blood, but the telemarketers are a real turn off.|

|This company calls me daily to refinance my home stating they are with a veterans home loan organization and want to see if I would like to lower my interest rate. I have asked them multiple times to remove me from their call list, at which time they hang up on me- and they continue to call me daily|

|Bud posted about 800-733-2767|
|I was heading into the bathroom just after noon today and did not take a phone with me with the thought that no one is going to call at noon on Sunday. However, as soon as I was in the bathroom the office phone rang, so I walked back into the kitchen to see who was calling. The call was ignored when "Toll Free Call" showed on the Caller ID.
We've had numerous calls from the Red Cross recently (I had no idea that's who this was until reading the comments here), and I've been put off by the constant harassment.|
|Marge posted about 610-844-312|
|This number keeps calling us from Allentown, we have requested several times to the caller to stop calling us and to remove us from their calling list. If they call us again I will personally ask for their supervisor and I do whatever it takes to keep this company from calling us again. It is a scam do not trust this company

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.
