WhyTheyCalled.com was created to help consumers discover more information about calls they received. Telemarketers, debt collectors, and scammers are becoming more prevalent in our society and we want to make people aware that we are not helpless to their relentless calling. Searching for your unknown number will help you learn about the offender, their intentions, and show other user’s comments about the number. We encourage you to comment under the number that has called you to help spread the word about these offenders.

There are certain laws all telemarketers and debt collectors must follow. Many are constantly breaking these laws to get money and information from you. If you have discovered that the number calling you is a known offender, you may report the number by filing with the Federal Trade Commission.
