Telephone Consumer Protection Act Violations

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which was enacted in 1991, was designed to regulate telemarketers who disturb individuals with robocalls, automated messages, and telephone solicitations. This act is enforced by the Federal Communications Commission and has been created to safeguard consumers from bothersome telemarketing strategies unless a consumer has expressed prior consent. However, telemarketers continue to be unphased by these legal limitations, and some blatantly ignore this act by harassing and bothering consumers.

If you are dealing with telephone contact violations that go against the protections laid out in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, our firm is here to help. At Boss Law, we’ve handled a wide variety of consumer protection cases over the years, and we know what to do to protect your rights against bothersome telemarketers.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibits telephone solicitors from the following behaviors:

Calling consumers’ homes before 8:00 in the morning or after 9:00 in the evening.
Calling individuals that are on the “Do Not Call” list.
Sending unsolicited faxes to consumers.
Sending text messages to consumers.
