Target Robocall Lawsuits
Did you receive an unsolicited call or text message from Target? You may be entitled to compensation. Meyer Wilson is currently investigating claims against the retail store over automated and prerecorded messages sent to people's cellphones and residences. These robocalls are potential Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) violations that could warrant $500 to $1,500 per violation.
In order for a solicitor or telemarketer to call you legally, they must have your express written consent. Without it, their calls violate the TCPA.
What does the TCPA protect against?
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.
Previously, there were some exemptions to the express written consent rule. For example, it was not previously a TCPA violation for a businesses to call someone with whom they had an "established business relationship" with. Now, the established business relationship no longer applies. Unless a company has a person's express written consent, they cannot make this type of call.
Meyer Wilson represents people who have received unsolicited calls or texts and fights for their rights under the TCPA. The TCPA provides for damages of $500 up to $1,500 per violation, so if you have received or are receiving unsolicited robocalls or texts, contact Meyer Wilson today for more information.
