Are you receiving unsolicited calls and messages?
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) protects you against unsolicited
calls and text messages to your cellphone, better known as
robocalls. Debt collectors and telemarketers must abide by strict regulations when
calling consumers. If you have been receiving these robocalls, contact
an attorney at Meyer Wilson today because you may be able to take legal action.
About The Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The TCPA became law in 1991, putting restrictions on automated calls and
prerecorded messages (for both debt collection and telemarketing purposes).
The TCPA also now regulates automated text messaging. In most circumstances,
an entity must have a person’s prior express consent in order to
make automated or prerecorded calls or text messages to a cell phone.
$500 - $1,500 Per Violation
If you have received robocalls, unsolicited text messages, or any other
unsolicited phone call from a debt collector or a telemarketer, you could
be entitled to $500 or more per violation. To learn more about your rights
under the TCPA,
