Philadelphia Class Action Lawyers Investigate Unwanted Telemarketing Calls, Spam, and Text Messages
The class action lawyers at Axler Goldich are investigating mass unwanted text messages, phone calls (cell phones and landlines), and faxes sent from companies to individuals without their written express consent. This practice may violate the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The TCPA enacted in 1991 protects consumers from certain unsolicited commercial communications. The Federal Communications Commission revised its rules in 2012 mandating that telemarketers must obtain a consumer’s prior written consent before calling them and each call must have an opportunity for the consumer to opt out. The existence of an “established business relationship” does not qualify as an exemption to these rules. Violations of the TCPA may be subject to statutory penalties up to $1500 per incident.
Common TCPA Violations
- Telemarketing calls placed to a consumer’s residential or cellular telephone line without prior express written consent.
- Collection calls placed to a consumer’s cellular telephone without prior consent.
- Text messages sent to a consumer’s cellular telephone without prior express consent.
- Collection calls to a consumer’s cellular telephone after consent is revoked, either orally or in writing.
