It seems as though today, scam calls are constantly happening whether they claim to be the IRS, are trying to fool you into thinking you owe thousands of dollars on a loan you don’t have, or won a free cruise to the Bahamas. While a cruise to the Bahamas would be great, the person or robot on the other side of the call is just trying to get your credit card information. Technology has become so advanced that half the time, people can’t tell whether the person calling you is really a person or a robot.
While robotic scam calls are allowed to call your home or business, there is a law protecting your cell phone from receiving these calls. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA prohibits automated messages from calling your personal cell phone. If you are subject to the harassment of automated phone calls, you are entitled to bring legal action on your own or can become part of a class action suit, which is the option many people who file choose. For each call, you may be entitled to anywhere from $500 to $1,500 if the case is successful.
If you feel as though you are being harassed by automated phone calls, you may want to contact an experienced TCPA attorney who can provide you with information about the types of class action suits that you may be eligible to participate in. This law is constantly changing as technology changes so speaking with an attorney who understands the ins and outs of what you are entitled to in this type of legal situation would be beneficial.
