Issue: Abusive robocalls and text messages
Harassed by Prerecorded Cell Phone Calls?
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibits abusive telephone practices by lenders and marketers, and places strict limits on the use of autodialers to call or send texts to cell phones. Lieff Cabraser represents consumers who have received debt collection, marketing, or other harassing pre-recorded calls to their cell phones without consenting to receive these calls. We are also investigating companies that send unsolicited text messages to customers who did not expressly consent to receiving these text messages. “Nobody should be subjected to repeated, intrusive autodialer calls at all hours from a debt collector, lender, or other company, especially on their cell phones,” commented attorney Jonathan D. Selbin of Lieff Cabraser.
Lieff Cabraser has spearheaded a series of groundbreaking class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), which prohibits abusive telephone practices by lenders and marketers, and places strict limits on the use of autodialers to call or send texts to cell phones. The settlements in these cases have collectively put a stop to millions of harassing calls by debt collectors and others and resulted in the recovery by consumers across America of over $440 million to date.
