DID YOU KNOW that if a person or company makes a “robo-call” without appropriate consent, the recipient of the calls is entitled to $500 per call and, if he or she can demonstrate that the calls were knowingly made in violation of applicable laws, may possibly be entitled to up to $1,500 per violation.
To bring a valid claim against the caller, there must be a telephone call, placed using an automatic telephone dialing system or pre-recorded voice directed to a cellular telephone number without the recipient’s prior, express written consent to make these calls.
While there are many scenarios under which people receive these calls, you often see these types of phone calls from a debt collector calling the debtor’s credit application reference or family member on an account.
