They may be illegal, too!
Several class action lawsuits have been brought by consumers who are being harassed by debt collectors representing companies that they have never done business with and do not owe any money to. Even if you do owe the debt, it is a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, (TCPA) for those companies to contact you on your cell phone using a robo-dialing system or prerecorded voice without your prior express consent.
Here is a NBC News story covering one of our class action lawsuits in which T-Mobile was harassing our client in violation of the TCPA.
Another common TCPA violation is text spam. Thousands of unsolicited text message advertisements have been sent over the years to consumers who either didn’t sign up to receive them or opted out of receiving future texts resulting in many class action lawsuits.
If a company is found to have violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, you may be entitled to compensation. Please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman a call today at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
