What does the Telephone Consumer Protection Act say on Spam Texting?
If you have received unwanted spam texts, it's important to know that the law is on your side. Commercial operators and businesses are prohibited from sending unsolicited, unwanted, and non-consensual texts under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Even if you did not sign up for the do not call registry, these messages are still illegal.
The do not call registry is a great way to protect yourself from these unwanted messages. If you have signed up to receive text messages from a company, they can send them to you until you opt-out. However, if you didn't give them permission to send texts and they are still doing so, they are breaking the law.
It's important to note that the TCPA takes spam text message violations seriously. If you are a victim of these unwanted messages, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation ranging from $500 to $1,500 per offending text message. If the court finds that the company or individual knowingly violated the law in sending the messages, the maximum financial penalties will be applied. If you believe you have a case, contact a personal injury attorney or TCPA lawyer for a free consultation. At Demesmin and Dover law firm, we can help you determine whether you have a viable case and seek the compensation you deserve.
Tips to help you win a Case Like This
1. Do Not Delete
If you have received spam text messages and want to take legal action, it is essential to have the messages as evidence. Without them, it can be difficult to build a strong legal case. The text messages serve as proof that you were subjected to a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). As a precaution, in addition to saving the messages on your phone, you should take a screenshot of each message. If you are considering legal action, contact a personal injury attorney or TCPA lawyer who can help you assess the strength of your case and guide you through the legal process.
2. Compile Information
In a spam text message lawsuit, gathering as much information as possible is key. One of the challenges in these cases is distinguishing between spam and scams. Scammers typically do not leave any identifying information, while spammers are usually companies or individuals that can be easily identified. If not, the number can usually be searched online to determine its origin. If it is from a scammer, the number will be difficult, if not impossible, to trace. It is crucial to provide all the information you have to your personal injury attorney or TCPA lawyer for review. They can help you determine the best course of action to take and whether you have a viable legal claim.
3. Get A Lawyer
