Robo Calls

It’s illegal to robo call your cell phone after you’ve told a company to stop. It’s also illegal to robo call if you never gave your permission in the first place. The law is call the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). If anyone is using a computer to call your cell phone, or sending you pre-recorded voice or text messages, then call us immediately. We can help. You can recover up to $1,500 per call/message for your trouble and there’s no fee unless we recover on your TCPA case. Give us a chance to help you make the calls stop and put money in your pocket.  Click here to find out more.
