He goes into detail about what a Robocall is, why it’s a violation of the TCPA, the types of compensation you are entitled to if you are receiving these types of calls, and how his firm can help you put a stop to them.

You may have heard of something called Robocalls. Most people don’t really know what they are. Essentially it is setting up a computer or a machine to auto-dial people. They continuously call hoping that people will pick up. Some people receive hundreds of calls Robo-dialed to their cell phones. Many times these calls are illegal. However, you do have remedies.

Most people don’t realize that there are remedies to stop this from happening. You can bring a lawsuit against the perpetrators. For every illegal call that has been made, you can recover anywhere from $500 to $1,500 in damages. This is true regardless of whether you pick up the call or not, or whether the calls are reflected on your phone bill or not. The calls will be reflected on the company’s out-going Robo-dialed caller. They have something called an automatic-dialer and it’s going to be reflected on that automatic-dialer. We can get those records in a lawsuit.

There are certain things that you have to be aware of though. If you gave them the expressed permission to call you on your cell phone, then in most cases, it’s legal for them to do so. You may have given a business your cell phone number at some point, but you do have the right to revoke that consent. You have the right to send a letter to them saying, ” You’re calling my cell phone and I request that you stop immediately”.
