Stop Robocalls

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) has been around since 1991. The TCPA restricts telephone solicitations and the use of automated telephone equipment. Specifically, the TCPA limits the use of automatic dialing systems, prerecorded voice messages, and unsolicited text messages. Today, consumers receive more robocalls and unsolicited text messages than ever. Technology is the reason. Companies use autodialers to send out thousands of phone calls and text messages every minute for an incredibly low cost.

  • What is a Robocall? If you pick up the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, that’s a robocall. Similarly, if someone leaves you a prerecorded message, that’s a robocall, too. If the recording is a sales message, and you haven’t given your written permission to get calls from the company on the other end, then the call is illegal. Period.
  • Robocalls to Cellphones: Robocalls made to a cellphone are usually illegal unless you give consent to receive the call by giving the number as contact information. It is not necessary that you be charged for the call. The prohibition extends to telemarketing and collection calls.
  • You May be Entitled to Money: Get $500.00-$1,500.00 for illegal robocalls, text messages, and faxes.

    I wanted to find out if a collector mails you a letter and does not have the full mini-maranda is that a violation? The only thing they have in the letter is “this is a communication from a debt collector. This is an attempt to collect a debt. No other info, in tthe letter. Is that a violation in my letter? I have several letters that states the same thing!

    I am getting lots of unwanted RoboCalls from the following #803 810 0126 The above number called me 4 times this morning. And RoboCalls from 864 438 0646 walmart for prescription drugs. I do not get any medicine from wal mart. I have contacted wal mart several times in person and have told them they keep calling me by mistake and they continue to call me with a robot that says (Your medicine is ready for pickup). I made it clear they are calling the wrong number and they continue to robocall me monthly like clockwork.

    I am looking for ways to stop Navient from harassing me. I was given money by salliemae many years back when I really didnt need it for college… I was told that I could use the money for college expenses so I did, so I got some money from them and while I was in my undergraduate the money kept accruing interest… interest which I didnt understand at all… just like many young people out there, before I graduated I started to receive persistent calls from them asking me to pay … but then one day I called them back and told them I was in school and they should stop the harrassement .. they stopped briefly and then it continued through out my last years in undergraduate…. I graduated in 2008 and looked for work but I could not have found a job to make a living so i went back to get a master degree!

    I’m having problems with Central Credit Services. They bought my old loan from Navient Solutions (otherwise known as Sallie Mae). The loan is showing on my credit report as CLOSED. I just want them to step off, and I will follow some of the steps on the Central Credit Services page on your website!

    Hello. I am possibly in need of a lawyer to assist with an automobile body shop refusing to work on my car. They refuse to finish the work and won’t relinquish my car back to me although my insurance company is ready to pay the damages. Also, I believe that they did damage to my car in an attempt to charge the insurance company more money. Where is the lawyer at that I will be talking to? I would prefer to work with a local attorney!

    After receiving hundreds of robocalls over the past 6 months, maybe 3-5/day, I was even leery leaving my phone number on your site. I have an Iphone and am able to block them but still have all of the numbers as well as the ones that my youmail app catches. I am TIRED of getting these, as I use my phone for work and some clients have out of state numbers. I cannot even answer now and have to screen all calls, making me miss important ones.
