The Telephone Consumer Protection Act, or TCPA, protects consumers from certain types of unsolicited telephone calls placed to a cell phone using any automatic dialing system or prerecorded voice. Sometimes, even certain types of unsolicited text messages or spam text messages may violate the TCPA.
If a business or individual on behalf of a business violated the TCPA by sending you unsolicited text messages or using auto-dialing or robo-dialing systems to contact your cell phone, you may be entitled to $500 to $1500 for each call made to your cell phone without your prior express consent. Damages up to $1500 may be recovered if it can be shown that the caller “willfully or knowingly” violated the statute.
