Unwanted Phone Calls
Have you received an unwanted live or recorded advertisement on your cellular phone (known as a "robo call")?
The federal government prohibits businesses from making live or prerecorded phone call advertisements to cellular phones. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), 47 USC §227, provides a statutory fine for unsolicited phone call advertisements ranging from $500 - $1,500 per violation.
Unsolicited phone call advertisements are also known as "robocalls," "unwanted calls", "nuisance calls" and "phone spam".
These advertisements are harassing and can cost the victim:
- Cellular phone plan minutes and
- Overcharges through their cellular phone providers.
Congress recognized this harassing practice and provides citizens a private right of action to bring a lawsuit to stop these activities.
