Robo-Calls and Spam Text Messages

Robo-Calls and Spam Text Messages

If you are being pestered by robo-calls to your cell phone and/or unwanted text messages or faxes from companies trying to sell you something, there is a statute that protects you and provides you with a potential claim for money damages.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal statute, 47 U.S.C. § 227, that regulates telemarketing calls, auto-dialed calls, prerecorded calls, text messages, and unsolicited faxes. You may have a claim for $500, or more, per violation, against companies that violate this statute.

The Cory Fein Law firm has successfully sued companies under the TCPA and is interested in investigating potential violations of this statute.
