The Telephone Consumer Protection Act, also known as the TCPA, is a law meant to protect consumers from harassing telemarketing phone calls. These telemarketing phone calls are prohibited from debt collection companies, credit card companies, and other consumer debt companies. Without your consent as a consumer, these companies are not allowed to keep calling. Consent must either be in written form, or given in the firm of providing your phone number to a creditor.
The Do Not Call list is a tool provided on behalf of regulations by the Federal Communications Commission, and companies must respect the fact that you are on it. As a result, you cannot be reached for 5 years after your inclusion to the list. However, some companies persistently intrude on countless peoples’ lives by continuing their irksome and bothersome behavior.
If you receive any of the following, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Chicago consumer attorneys:
- Text messages from an automatic telephone dialing system
- Pre-recorded phone calls from an automatic telephone dialing system
- Non-emergency calls
- Faxes from a debt collector
Thanks to the TCPA, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the offending company in case of any of the above. If the company knowingly and continuously violated these regulations, your compensation will be adjusted.
