We see situations where they will use an auto dialer but choose a local
area code to trick someone into thinking it’s a local call and they
are more likely to answer it. If you have any debt collector or telemarketer
that is auto dialing your cell phone without your express consent, they
may be violating the law and you may be entitled to $1500 per call that
they placed to your cell phone, even if you did not actually answer the
call. This may be a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act
(TCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and the Florida
Consumer Collection Practices Act (FCCPA).
Everyone with a phone has been the target of some autodialing campaign.
The tell-tale signs include a delay with silence or a series of beeps
before someone answers, or when a prerecorded voice begins to speak, or
when you wait for someone but then get hung up on. Odds are if a debt
collector or some big company is calling you, they are using some sort
of autodialing phone equipment that may subject them to liability.
Oftentimes the callers are calling for someone else’s debt who gave
a fake number or who changed their number, these are our favorite cases
because no one should be autodialed without consent. If you did not give
your cell phone number to this caller, you should have a right not be
bothered with autodialed phone calls. Other times we see debt collectors
that continue to call after they have been told to stop. These may be
violations entitling you to up to $1500 per call. Do the math, if you
are getting one call per day for 5 days per week, for months on end, the
case could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have recovered
millions of dollars for autodialed cell phone calls and prerecorded messages.
We also take these cases on a contingency fee bases, so there are no attorneys’
fees or costs unless we obtain a recovery for you. If you are receiving
auto dialed and prerecorded messages to your cell phone, contact us asap
for a free consultation. Please do not decide for yourself that you have
no cases, if you are getting autodialed, please calls us to discuss the
situation and let us help you recover the compensation you may be entitled
to for improperly placed autodialed cell phone calls. For more information
