Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Blankenship Law Firm represents consumers in lawsuits
for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The TCPA was
passed in response to consumer complaints about the growing number of
unsolicited telemarketing calls and the increasing use of autodialers and
robo-callers. Under the TCPA, consumers have the right to sue for violations of
the law involving the “do not call list,” autodialers, faxes, calls
to cellular phones, and artificial or prerecorded messages.
Unless you have given written consent, an advertiser,
creditor, or debt collector may not:
Make solicitations before 8 am or after 9 pm.
Use an automatic dialing system or “autodialer”
Make calls using prerecorded messages or
Send unsolicited faxes.
A violation of this statue can in an award of $500 or
more per unsolicited call or fax. If you are tired of unsolicited phone calls
or faxes, call us today at (205) 328-3358. We can help.
