Reporting Telemarketing Abuse
Chicago Consumer Law Attorney
Constant, unwanted telemarketing calls can be annoying. While consumers do have the option of joining the national Do Not Call list, many telemarketers will still place calls anyway and may continue to do so even after the person they call asks them to stop. If you are receiving annoying telemarketing calls, involve a Chicago consumer lawyer at Atlas Consumer Law. We can assist you by investigating the spammers and potentially helping you collect compensation.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) was passed by Congress in 1991 and specifically prohibits any calls using an automatic dialing system. The act also applies to unsolicited text messages. Individuals or businesses that place illegal robocalls or robotexts can be held liable for between $500 and $1,500 in damages per unsolicited call or text message.
Calling customers is one of the cheapest and fastest ways to advertise. Although predictive dialers, auto-dialers, and robocalls made without your consent are illegal under the TCPA, many companies continue to use them because consumers do not take any action against these unlawful practices. Asking the spammer to take you off of their call list is generally not very effective, so in order to effectively report abuse, please contact Atlas Consumer Law.
