It is illegal for markerters/debt collectors to call you with an autodialer unless you give them permission.
Calls made with auto dialers often are met with static air for a number of seconds after you pick up your cell phone and are typically accompanied with an audible click when answered. In order for a debt collector or telemarketer to maintain a volume operation, they must make thousands of telephone calls each day – so, if you are getting calls from a debt collector or telemarketer on your cellular telephone, there is a very good chance that they are violating the TCPA.
In accordance with the TCPA, consumers are entitled to collect damages ranging from $500 to $1,500 for each unlawful call, fax, or text message.
Remember to always save your voicemails, unsolicited text messages and junk faxes and send them to me for review.
Examples of common TCPA violations include:
Unless a consumer has previously given express written consent, it is generally a violation of the TCPA for a business to engage in any of the following conduct:
- Debt collector and/or telemarketing calls made to your cellular telephone, which were initiated by the use of an auto dialer.
- Debt collector and/or telemarketing calls made to your cellular telephone, which were initiated by an artificial voice or a prerecorded message.
- Sending unwanted fax messages, which solicit or promote a business (i.e. junk faxes).
- Sending unwanted business advertisements via text messages to your cellular telephone.
