How To Sue Telemarketers
As lovely as it sounds to receive a fat check for all the annoying and illegal telemarketing calls you’ve endured over the weeks, months, or years, the task itself can seem a little daunting. Unfortunately, there are a few things you have to do. Fortunately, they aren’t too complicated. Here’s a quick breakdown of the steps required to sue telemarketers:
- Is it legal? The first step you need to take is to check and make sure the calls or texts you’re receiving are illegal. Once you are certain that these consistent calls or texts are in violation of the TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act), you can move on to step two.
- Get on the list. Make sure you are on the National Do Not Call Registry. It takes 31 days for list updates to process, but being on the list can serve as concrete proof that you are legally refusing to be harassed by telemarketers.
- Keep tabs. Write down the phone number(s) you’re getting calls from. Save text messages and voicemails. Request your personal phone records to be sent to you. Whatever you can do to prove the actions of the telemarketing companies is incredibly important.
- Lawyer up. Once you’ve gotten on the National Do Not Call List and began keeping records of any illegal calls you’re still receiving, it’s time to let the experts take over your case. Get in contact with a lawyer and begin the process of actually suing the telemarketers. You will have to provide your records and be available for meetings, but they will handle the legal process of moving forward with your case.
