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.

|Annoyed former donor posted about 800-733-2767|
|I am a FORMER donor to the Red Cross now, since they have gone to a telemarketing approach to asking for blood and platelet donations from me. Calls multiple times a day, on all contact numbers you've ever given them never stop. It used to be that a kind person from the donor office you would visit would call only when they could see you were eligible to donate, and if you told them you were unavailable for X amount of time, they wouldn't call. Now it is through some vendor and high pressure. I also found out that a person I knew had failed their test to stay phlebotomy certified the Red Cross ALLOWED to continue to draw blood for them! I will never trust them again. |

|ITY posted about 540-212-9422|
|Texted me from an ad I have on CL... EXACT words were:
"can you accommodate paying you with a certified check and wait till it clears your bank before pick up is scheduled?"
I responded: "No, I'm sorry but there are too many scammers out there trying to use fake money orders and such. So no, Cash only."
Go figure..... Didn't hear back. I also reported them on CL under the section that says report abuse and something about police. Yeah, I reported them to the police. SCAMMER!!!! Good thing I didn't fall for it, it's a pretty expensive item|

Verry anooying receiving calls from this number at 9:30 at night. Attempts to be put on their do not call list only result in a "That can take 30 days" response.
I would urge any company that uses them for a survey to discontinue supporting such an arrogant 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.
