Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) was enacted to protect consumers from harassing phone calls and text messages by telemarketers, debt collectors, and other unwanted businesses.  Unwanted phone calls made by a company’s automatic dialing system are more than just an annoyance—this type of harassment is an illegal violation of your privacy. Fortunately, if you are receiving harassing phone calls, you may be entitled to statutory damages of up to $500 per call or $1,500 per call if it’s found that the caller knowingly and willfully violated the TCPA.

If you are receiving these type of unwanted phone calls, we suggest that you protect your rights by taking the following action: (1) register your number on the Federal Trade Commisssion’s do not call registry; (2) clearly tell the unwanted caller to stop calling your telephone and to remove your number from their call list; and (3) take our Free, Confidential Eligibility Test to see if you may be entitled to receive compensation for being harassed, or if you would prefer to speak with one of our licensed attorneys, please give us a call toll free at (844) 466-7326.

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted to protect consumers from harassing debt collection practices by debt collectors.  Debt collectors may violate the FDCPA in many ways, including, but not limited to: calling before 8 AM or after 9 PM, threatening you with criminal prosecution, using profanity or obscene language, misrepresenting facts, failing to state that the communication is for the purposes of collecting a debt, and many other harassing or misleading activities.  Statutory damages of $1,000, actual damages, and attorney’s fees may be recovered for violations of the FDCPA.

If a debt collector is contacting you in a harassing manner, we suggest that you protect your rights by clearly instructing the debt collector to cease all communications with you, and then taking our Free, Confidential Eligibility Test to see if you may be entitled to receive compensation for being harassed, or if you would prefer to speak with one of our licensed attorneys, please give us a call toll free at (844) 466-7326.
