Robocalls are often Illegal

“With an autodialer, millions of calls can be blasted out in a matter of hours, bombarding people in a struggling economy with promises of debt assistance and cheap loans. Even if a consumer does not have a phone number on the do-not-call list,robocalls are illegal. A 2009 rule specifically banned this type of phone sales pitch unless a consumer has given written permission to a company to call.”

Illegal Robocalls can and should be stopped. Congress enacted serious penalties for companies that disregard these laws. Call a lawyer who is familiar with the Telephone Consumer Protection act. Each phone call could be worth $500.
