Every day, a countless number of Americans receive
unwanted phone calls to their cellphones from banks, debt collectors, and other companies.
However, this act is considered unlawful under the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act, which states that persons must give their consent to receive
these types of calls from companies. If an individual receives an unwanted
call from a debt collector or various other types of companies, the individual
may be entitled to collect up to $1,500 for each call.
Information Regarding Robocalls
Robocalls are those phone calls produced using autodial systems. In most
cases, these phonecalls are designed with pre-recorded messages, which
play when the consumer answers the phone. However, a call can also be
considered a robocall if a live person speaks when the consumer answers
but the call was made using an autodial system.
Information Regarding Autodial Systems
Autodial systems are pieces of software or equipment that dial telephone
numbers without any human initiation or intervention. In most instances,
if a person receives a phone call and is greeted by a message that has
been pre-recorded, that phone call was more than likely made using an
autodial system. Additionally, many of these types of phonecalls result
in a disconnect or a period of silence before a live human speaks.
