While not all unwanted telemarketing calls are illegal, many of the practices that companies use to conduct the calls or texts violate federal law. For instance, robocalls are (for the most part) against the law. It is not legal for a company to attempt to sell you something over the phone with a recorded message unless you have given them your express, written consent.
Despite knowing that it is unlawful to make robocalls, many companies continue the practice. They are a cheap way to reach a large number of people from anywhere in the world. Many robocalls are part of a scheme to defraud you out of money. Unfortunately, telemarketers continue to use these deceptive call tactics because they are rarely held liable for their actions.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal law that protects consumers from unsolicited calls and texts.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (47 U.S.C. § 227) restricts the use of:
The TCPA applies to both texts and telephone calls. If you receive unwanted and unsolicited text messages, phone calls, or voicemails, you should retain a copy of the messages and contact our office. At Levin Law, P.A. we investigate and litigate TCPA violations. All case evaluations are free and without obligation to retain our services.
The best way to stop unwanted calls and texts is by helping to hold telemarketers accountable for their wrongdoing. Robocalls and other unethical practices continue because there are few consequences for these companies if consumers choose not to come forward. Filing a lawsuit or other legal action against telemarketing companies can help stop spam calls and texts.
If you continue to receive robocalls and texts, contact our office to determine whether you can pursue a legal claim. Call managing partner Brian Levin at (305) 402-9050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your rights. All spam call case evaluations are free and confidential.
Most cases are handled on a contingency-fee basis, meaning clients are not responsible for Levin Law attorney’s fees unless money is recovered on their behalf.
