Robocalls, those computerized, pre-recorded messages used by telemarketers to sell you goods or services are not only a nuisance; in many cases they're illegal. Across the country, complaints about automated telemarketing are skyrocketing. Robocallers often ignore "Do Not Call" lists by trying to justify their services as useful to the public. Only healthcare organizations, charities, political groups, emergency notices, and wireless phone service providers are allowed to bypass "No Call" lists.
As of October 16, 2013, the Federal Communications Commision and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act require businesses to obtain prior express written consent before they can place telemarketing calls to mobile phones or residential lines. This also now applies to text messages.
If you are experiencing annoying automated telephone calls or unsolicited text messages, we would like to hear from you.
