The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) limits unsolicited prerecorded telemarketing calls to be made to your home telephone and also prohibits all autodialed, prerecorded calls or text messages to your cell phone.
Unless written consent is provided, under the TCPA, sales callers may not:
1) call before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.,
2) call if you have chosen to opt out of calls from that specific caller or if you have added your name to the Do Not Call List,
3) send unsolicited fax messages to your home or office, and
4) refuse to provide their name, the name of the person or organization on whose behalf they are calling, and contact information for that person or organization.
If you received any of the illegal calls stated above, you may be able to bring a suit against the caller in violation of the TCPA.
If you have received such calls remember to: keep records of phone calls and voicemails from the caller, keep a a written record of the date and times of the calls, the caller’s identity and a summary of any conversation you had. Also, keep a copy of any letters you may have sent to callers revoking consent for them to make automated calls.
