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.

|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" ?! |

|This number calls at lest 4 times a day. Half the time no one is there and the rest of the time you cannot understand the caller due to garbled transmission or they do not speak English well. Make them stop|
|me posted about 202-471-1078|
|PAY ATTENTION !
Look carefully at the number on your screen. If it looks like this 20 2 4711078 it is not originating from the US. Country code 20 is EGYPT. This number purposely looks identical to the 202-471-1078 to fool you. The caller will state they are from Concerned Women for America soliciting donations. Do it and you are screwed.
Note - I'm using a new smartphone and the phone number distinctly shows the difference between international calls and US calls. Your cell phone or home phone may not.|

|They keep calling and do not leave voicemails. |
|Rich posted about 310-555-9872|
|These guys selling solar panels have called me more than a dozen times over the past 3-4 weeks, despite my repeated requests/demands to get my number off their list. Since its a different caller each time, they say "Well you didn't request that from me." One person said that since their company had government CONTRACTS they were exempt. As I was explaining the lengthy issues to the caller today and their violations, she replied with "Well you know everything don't you?" Really really frustrating.|

|"Peter Johnson" called from Micromillions" trying to scam yr 81 year old father by saying he won 3.5 million dollars and a brand new Lexus. Luckily I was listening in on the other line when this scumbag wanted my Dad's drivers license and ss number. When I called him out on it, he became very belligerent. TOTAL SCAM AGAINST THE ELDERLY|
|Kitty posted about 770-205-6705|
|Telemarketer - very rude - asked for husband (our phone listing shows his name first) - didn't identify herself - when I said I was wife could I help, she mumbled call back later & hung up on me. I'm on the call block list (yeah, I know, no one pays attention to it).
Looked up company name through phone # on caller ID - listing says they're some kind of computer consultants - called the number, got "out-of-service" recording - which is what I now did to them - blocked their # on AT&T so they'll get the out-of-service msg.|

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.
