If you’ve received unsolicited calls, texts, or faxes, you may have a claim for damages under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). The TCPA requires that creditors, telemarketers, and other companies have written permission to call your landline or cellphone using an automated service, or to send you a fax. The same rules apply to text messages.
When corporations don’t follow the law, it’s an invasion of your privacy and can result in extra charges on your phone bill. Further, nonstop calls from banks or other creditors can overwhelm already stressed consumers trying to pay their mortgages or credit card bills.
You can bring a claim against corporations for these violations of federal law. Contact the attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® for a free, confidential consultation and to learn more about your legal rights and options. Click here to chat with one of our online representatives.
