Telemarketing & Robocall Lawyers
At one time or another you have probably received a call or two from a telemarketer and you may even have put your number on the “Do Not Call” Registry but you kept receiving these calls thinking there was nothing else you could do but tell them not to call again. Well, according to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, there may be something else you can do. You may be able to file a lawsuit against these companies. If you have received these calls and want to know whether or not you may be eligible for compensation, you should speak to a telemarketing lawyer with the Higgins Firm. We will review your claim and see if you may be able to get compensation for these annoying calls you have been experiencing.How can the Telephone Consumer Protection Act help me?
This act places restrictions on the types of calls that telemarketers can and cannot make to consumers. It means that telemarketers cannot use automated calling systems and previously recorded voice messages to call people on their home phones, cell phones, and to send text messages or faxes without getting their consent first. It also means that telemarketers are not allowed to call people who have registered on the “Do Not Call” list.Does this apply to Debt Collection Calls?
The answer is yes. Even if a business is trying to call you to collect on a debt you may owe, they still have to follow the Telephone Consumer Protection Act's regulations. There are also other laws that only allow debt collectors to call at certain times. They are also not allowed to make threats or using harassment to collect on debts. Debt collectors are not allowed to tell you that you owe an amount that is more than what you actually owe and they cannot charge you illegal interest or other fees because of your debts. If they do not follow the rules in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act as well as other state and federal laws, you may file a lawsuit and may be entitled to compensation for these violations.What should I do if I am receiving Unwanted Calls?
If you feel that you or someone you love has been a victim of harassing and unwanted telemarketing or robocalls then you should:
- Get a copy of your phone records or save any phone calls and make a note of any calls that you received from a telemarketer.
- Record telemarketing calls that you receive and make sure to include the date, time, identity of the caller and information about what the call was about.
- Make sure to keep any messages you receive.
- If you have put your name on the “Do not call” Registry or requested that a telemarketer not call you, keep any of this communication.
