Compensation for Telephone, Fax and Text Messages

The TCPA offers certain damages in situations where a person has been harassed by unsolicited telephone calls, faxes, or text messages from telemarketers. There are plenty of ways a telemarketer can violate the statute. For each violation, the recipient of the telephone call, fax or text message is entitled to a minimum of $500.00.

$500 - $1,500 / call or text

Compensation for Spam Texts, Robocalls and Robotext

If you received text message spam or robocalls to your cell phone, you may be entitled to up to $1,500 for each robocall and robotext you received. It’s illegal for companies to make auto-dialed, pre-recorded calls or to send junk text messages to your cell phone unless you have given them your consent.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush as an amendment to the Communications Act of 1934.

The law places restrictions on the ways in which companies are allowed to solicit consumers via telephone and other communication devices.

The TCPA established the following requirements:

  • Solicitors cannot make calls to residences before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m., local time.
  • Solicitors must keep a "do-not-call" (DNC) list of consumers who requested not to be contacted; the DNC request must be honored for 5 years.
  • Solicitors cannot contact anyone who is listed in the National Do Not Call Registry.
  • Solicitors must give their name, the name of the entity they are calling on behalf of, and a contact number or address.
  • Solicitations to residences that use a computer-generated voice or a recording are prohibited.
  • Any call made using an autodialer or a computer-generated or prerecorded voice to any service for which the recipient is charged for the call is prohibited.
  • Calls made using an autodialer that engage two or more lines of a business are prohibited.
  • Unsolicited faxes are prohibited.
  • Following a violation of the TCPA, the victim may (1) sue for up to $500 per violation, (2) seek an injunction, or (3) both.
  • Following a willful violation of the TCPA, the victim may sue for up to $1,500 per violation.

If you have experienced a violation of any of these restrictions on telemarketing, you may be entitled to a minimum of $500 for each violation. Get a FREE case review today!

National Do Not Call Registry

After passing the TCPA in 1991, Congress delegated the do-not-call rules to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and recommended that a single national database be established for those who wish to avoid solicitation.

The FCC did not follow up on the suggestion, however, and instead required that each company maintain its own do-not-call database. This strategy proved to be ineffective due to the fact that the burden fell on the consumers to make a do-not-call request for each telemarketer that contacted them.

In 2003, the Federal Trade Commision (FTC) created the National Do Not Call Registry and established regulations that prevented telemarketers from making unsolicited calls to those in the registry. The telemarketing industry attempted to challenge the FTC in court, but Congress quickly ratified the Do Not Call Registry under the Do-Not-Call Implementation Act.

Common Violations

Violations of the TCPA most commonly involve robocalls, autodialers, and other forms of automated technology which are heavily restricted by the law.

Autodialers do not require any human input to dial phone numbers, allowing companies to make thousands of calls on a regular basis and oversaturate the communications space with excessive advertising. Whenever you pick up the phone and immediately hear a pre-recorded message on the other end, that call was almost certainly generated by an autodialer.

Robocalls made to anyone who has not provided prior written consent to receive such messages constitute a violation of the TCPA. At the beginning of the message, robocallers must provide the identity of the entities they represent as well as their phone number or address. Failure to do so constitutes a violation of the TCPA and exposes the company to possible litigation.

Telemarketers must always provide an option for recipients to opt out of the solicitations. The TCPA requires this option be provided at the beginning of a call, and when leaving a voicemail, telemarketers have to provide call-back numbers that allow consumers to add their phone numbers to a do-not-call list.

Finally, telemarketers cannot legally continue to contact you after being told that they have the wrong number. If they continue to solicit you, they are in violation of the TCPA.

Notable TCPA Lawsuits

Caribbean Cruise Line: $76 million (Sep. 2016) The cruise line allegedly cloaked its telemarketing calls as nonprofit surveys when making unsolicited calls to as many as 900,000 mobile and landline phone numbers. If an individual answered one of these calls, an automated voice would greet them and initiate a political survey. The calls enticed the recipient by informing them that their participation could make them eligible for a “free cruise” to the Bahamas. Due in part to the enormous volume of unsolicited calls made by the cruise line and the other implicated companies, this case constitutes the largest settlement ever made in a TCPA lawsuit. The defendants agreed to pay $76 million.

Capital One: $75.5 million (Aug. 2014)
US Coachways: $49.9 million (Nov. 2016)
AT&T Mobility: $45 million (Oct. 2014)
HSBC: $40 million (Sep. 2014)

We want to expose telemarketers and debt collectors who are guilty of violating the law while helping their victims pursue the compensation they deserve.

With a goal of cultivating a community that opposes illegal methods of solicitation, our number database catalogues the phone numbers that belong to telemarketers or debt collectors who have harassed contributors. If an offender’s phone number cannot be found, a contributor can always add to the list and allow others to comment on whether or not they have received the same calls.

We offer all visitors and contributors who want to put an end to the unwanted calls and seek potential compensation a free case review. After filling out the form, an attorney who specializes in anti-telemarketing litigation will be in touch to evaluate the details of the case.
