Unwanted Text Messages

If you have received a junk text on your cell phone, you may potentially bring a lawsuit against the person or business for a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”).
Because the TCPA is a complicated federal statute, please contact Ross H. Schmierer at (856) 797-9951 for a free consultation to discuss your options. You may be eligible for compensation under the law from $500 to $1500 per unsolicited text message.

In general, the TCPA is violated if:

  • You received a text message on your cell phone;
  • The text was sent in the last 4 years;
  • You did not give consent to the sender of the text to send you these texts; or
  • You had given consent at one time but subsequently revoked consent.

Unwanted Robocalls/Automated Calls

If you have received telemarketing calls, prerecorded or autodialed calls to your cell, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the person or business for a violation of the TCPA.

In general, the TCPA is violated if:

    • You received an automated or pre-recorded call on your cell phone;
    • The call was made in the last 4 years;
    • You did not give express consent to the caller to call you on your cell phone with automated calls; or
    • You had given consent at one time but subsequently revoked consent.

Junk Faxes

If you received an unsolicited advertisement sent to your business or personal fax machine or e-fax number without giving your prior express invitation or permission, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the person or business for a violation of the TCPA. You may be able to collect between $500 and $1,500 per violation by filing a TCPA lawsuit or joining a TCPA class action lawsuit against the offending company.
