Are you receiving automated calls, texts, or prerecorded messages to your cell phone from a bank, business or debt collector? Have you told them to stop the calls, but the automated calls to your cell phone continue? Do the calls seem to happen constantly?
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal statute that prohibits these entities from contacting your cell phone through automated calls, texts, or prerecorded messages without your prior express written consent. These unwanted calls, texts, or prerecorded messages are also known as “automated calls” or “robo calls,” and many instances may be made to your cell phone numerous times a week, and sometimes even multiple times a day.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act makes these activities illegal (1) if you never gave your express consent to receive the automated calls, texts, or prerecorded messages, or (2) after you have expressly revoked your prior consent. Under the Telephone Consumer Practices Act, you may be entitled to recover between $500 to $1,500 for each unauthorized automated contact made to your cell phone if you have not given consent to be called, or after you have told them to stop the calls.
If you think you may have a claim under the Telephone Consumer Practices Act, please do not hesitate to contact Sadlowski & Besse L.C.C. to discuss your options.
