Consumers who receive telemarketing calls, pre-recorded and/or automated calls to their cellphones or home landlines, may file a lawsuit against the telemarketer or debt collector for the violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
A consumer can recover:
- Potentially up to $500 for each violation of the Do Not Call Registry
- Potentially up to $500 per phone call that violates the TCPA
- Potentially up to $1,500 per phone call if the consumer can show that the TCPA was violated knowingly and willfully.
Consumers who are receiving calls in violation of the TCPA can take a few steps to document the violations. First, be sure to document all calls or texts you have received from telemarketers. Secondly, be sure to save all voicemails you received, also. This documentation can help an attorney determine if you have a sufficient claim under the TCPA or not.
