Nelnet Robocall Lawsuits
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) protects consumers from unsolicited
automated calls and text messages. Meyer Wilson is currently investigating
claims against Nelnet, the education planning and financing company, over
robocalls in violation of the TCPA. Each violation could warrant
$500 to $1,500.
The TCPA: Protection for Consumers
One of the major restrictions that the TCPA places on solicitors and telemarketers
is that they cannot call people without their
express written consent. 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.
