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.

|Foreign woman with accent knew my first name and said I was approved for a $9200 grant but I had to call the above number and give them the Grant approval ID#. What a crock. I am calling the police to report. My mother-in-law gets these phone calls all the time and I told her to stop answering the phone unless she recognizes the phone #.|
|Buddy posted about 941-743-9544|
|They have called me 9 or more times a day. They ask me if I want to buy drugs from them. They told me they would not take no for an answer. The last time I talked to them they said they were going to kill my dog if I don't give them $200. He also said that he would keep calling me for the rest of my life. I get these calls all the time but as soon as I block the numbers they have new numbers they call from. I am in desperate need of help. Why should I have to change my number and be punished because these assholes can get away with it. I am going to find a way to get them. I hate them so much. |

She gave me the 855 number and I called what appeared to be a a fake attorney with a false claim about an account I knew nothing about!
He referenced a bank credit card I didn't recognize and threatened that I would soon be in front of a judge!|

|Man with an accent said that I could receive a government grant for $9200. He said I was randomly selected, would not tell me how he got my number, but never used my name. He said I was selected because I paid my bills and taxes on time and was not convicted of any crimes.... And wouldn't say where he got information like that from. He gave me a code that I was supposed to use to claim my grant when I called the above number.|

|They keep calling and asking for "Linda" there is no Linda listed for the number they are calling and never has been. Its a company phone, it has been in my posession for over 5 years. I tell them to stop calling, but they continue to call back every two or three weeks. I actually just called them on the same number and I asked for "Linda". The man on the other end? "sure just a second" ?! |

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.
