Stop Spam Texts and Robocalls

We've all received robocalls or spam texts on our mobile phones. Did you know these calls are illegal? These calls and texts constitute a violation of your private space. They rob of you of your time and divert your attention and focus from work, play, and family. Under the rules and stipulations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), passed in 1991 and presided over by Federal Communications Commission (FCC), you have the right to be personally compensated at a rate of $500 to $1500 per call. In cases in which unsolicited calls have been widespread, class action suits may be filed. These suits are becoming increasingly prevalent, with many garnering million dollar settlements.

So what kinds of calls can we take action on? In the absence of emergency circumstances or a provision of prior express consent on your part, companies are prohibited from contacting you with “robocalls” at any time. These are calls that use an autodialer—or an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS)—to send out messages utilizing a pre-recorded voice. In many cases, autodialed calls featuring human voices may be in violation of the TCPA as well.

Companies are further prohibited from contacting you in any form before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. While people need to register their landlines for “do not call”, unless the party calling you has express consent they may not call your cell phone from an autodialer. It should be noted that spam texts—or messages sent out through small messaging services (SMS)—are covered under the TCPA as well, and considered calls to cell phones.
