Man Awarded $65,000 As A Result Of Unwanted Robo-Calls

Dan Harris of Flint, Michigan was awarded $65,000 in a federal lawsuit following allegations that he received 56 unsolicited robo-calls from Alliance Data Systems in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and Michigan state law. Harris reportedly received 56 robo-calls from August 18th to October 26, 2010 regarding a debt to World Financial National Bank that was not his.

“It’s a big win for consumers and puts banks and others in the collection business on notice once again that harassing phone calls will not be tolerated,” said his attorney in a news release.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibits calls to a person’s cell phone using an automatic telephone dialing system or using a prerecorded or artificial voice message without that person’s express consent.

Harris was awarded triple damages for each call made after August 23rd; the date Harris first notified Alliance Data Systems that they had the wrong phone number and that he did not know the person who actually owed the money.

If you are receiving harassing calls from telemarketers or debt collectors you may be entitled to compensation. Please give my office, The Law Office of Todd M. Friedman a call today at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
