|Call continuously on phone and work. Will not say who they are looking for or provide any information. Automated messages. When I call the number back, it disconnects. Text messages "want to connect with you" and leave voice messages wanting to verify address.|

|This guy is a very smooth talker, said he needed to set up delivery of a medical alert system which has been paid for. We have never thought of getting such a device. I think he was fishing for a credit card # name, address, etc. I listened but did not pickup. When I called the # there was silence then a busy signal.|

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.
