Explanation of Why You’re Getting Called
Are you receiving telemarketing calls even though you are registered on the do-not-call registry? Have you told a particular telemarketer to stop calling you and yet they continue to call you despite your requests for them to stop? If so, then you should report these do-not-call complaints to make your voice heard and to help stop these rogue telemarketers.
The do-not-call registry was designed for individuals to put their name on a list so that telemarketers would know who they could and could not call. Before any telemarketer starts a telemarketing campaign, they are supposed to scrub their list with the most updated list from the do-not-call registry. This begs the question how you were still called? You may have been called either because this telemarketer simply didn’t scrub the list like he was supposed to by law, or you gave this telemarketer explicit consent to be called which overrides your registration on the do-not-call registry.
Reporting Your Do Not Call Complaints
There are two important reasons why it is critical to report your do not call complaints. First, if you are receiving unwanted calls from a telemarketer, there are likely hundred of others who are receiving these same unwanted calls. Therefore, it is important that you report this telemarketer so that my firm is notified that a particular company is violating the do not call rules. When our firm is notified about a company repeatedly violating the do not call rules, in some circumstances, we may bring a case against that telemarketer to force them to stop violating the do not call rules. A company that violates the do not call rules has also violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act which we will explain more in below. Fill out the do not call complaint form above to report an unwanted telemarketing call.
Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) was created to protect you from unsolicited calls or text messages. In fact, the TCPA provides for specific penalties against the telemarketer that you may be entitled to if you receive certain types of calls. Our firm focuses on analyzing the reports that you report to us and informing you of whether or not you may have a TCPA claim against a particular company or telemarketer. For instance, if you receive an unwanted autodialed or pre-recorded call to your cell phone, you may be entitled to $500 per call according to the TCPA 47 USC 227.* If you receive an unsolicited text message from a company without your consent (or multiple text messages), you also may be entitled to $500 per text message according to the TCPA.* As a TCPA lawyer, I specifically focus on helping people like you stop the telemarketing calls and to analyze whether or not you have a valid claim under the TCPA to file a complaint against the company to recover money for each of the unwanted calls or text messages you received. If you are receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls or text messages, fill out our form above to file a report with us. If we think we can help you, we’ll be in touch with you as soon as possible.
*Disclaimer: Please check in with us about the specific facts of you receiving unwanted calls so we can better help you analyze whether you may be entitled to the $500 per call according to the TCPA since this can be a tricky area of law to determine whether you have a valid claim. We do not get paid for our services unless you get paid, so there is no risk to work with us.
