Do you hate getting unsolicited telemarketing calls and text messages as much as I do? Did you know it is against the law for a company to robo-dial your cell phone without your permission? There is help, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) prohibits companies from contacting consumers on their cell phones by using an “automatic telephone dialing system” or using “a prerecorded voice” without their prior consent. Furthermore, those text offers from companies are supposed to have an “opt-out” option and if they do not they may be violating the law.
If a telemarketer is found to be in violation of the TCPA, you may be entitled to compensation of up to $1,500 for each violation. Millions of dollars in TCPA class action lawsuit settlements have been awarded to consumers and the number of companies facing TCPA class action lawsuits continues to grow.
The Law Office of Todd M. Friedman has won several of these TCPA cases and has many open class action lawsuits pending at this time, Including one against T-Mobile. If you are being harassed by telemarketers and spam, call my office for a free consultation. 877-449-8898.
