Unwanted Telemarketing Calls and Texts
Unwanted telemarketing calls and texts can be incredibly annoying. As may already know, it can be incredibly frustrating when:
- Telemarketers don’t identify themselves. You see missed calls from a number you don’t recognize and waste time calling back, making sure you didn’t miss something important.
- Your own precious calls and text time lead to charges and overages for you by your cell phone carrier.
If any of those problems sound familiar, and you’re experiencing any such unwanted telemarketing calls and texts, don’t worry. You’re in the right place.
What are my rights against telemarketers?
When it comes to telemarketing calls and texts, it’s important to know your rights. For example, we want you to know that:
- Once you’ve asked to be on the “Do Not Call List” for telemarketers, they are legally NOT ALLOWED to contact you.
- If you’re getting calls from someone you don’t recognize, they must have your permission to contact you.
The standard for marketing calls and contact is very high, so they almost always need consent in order to contact you.
Can I revoke my consent? What if I gave permission to telemarketers at some point?
Even if you once gave permission for marketers to contact you, you can always revoke your consent to be contacted. So, if you ask, “Please do not contact me anymore”, they are supposed to NO LONGER call you.
Can I receive money in damages for telemarketing violations?
Yes, you can receive up to $500 per call for a negligent violation and up to $1,500 for an intentional violation. With some legal help, you can make sure you get the money you deserve.
