Telemarketer harassment, robocalls, and other violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act requires telemarketers and other parties to obey specific rules and restrictions when contacting consumers using telephone lines. However, despite such restrictions, these parties often continue to violate the law and disrupt the daily life of the individuals the Act was meant to protect.

HOW TO REPORT A TELEMARKETER FOR HARASSMENT

The TCPA restrictions and guidelines vary for landlines and cell phones.

For calls made to landlines, the following rules generally apply:

  • Pre-recorded calls are illegal and prohibited without prior written consent
  • Pre-recorded non-telemarketing may be allowed
  • Auto-dialed telemarketing calls may be allowed
  • Auto-dialed non-telemarketing may be allowed

For calls made to cell phones, the following rules generally apply:

  • Pre-recorded calls are illegal and prohibited without prior written consent
  • Pre-recorded non-telemarketing calls are illegal and prohibited
  • Auto-dialed telemarketing calls are illegal and prohibited
  • Auto-dialed non-telemarketing calls are illegal and prohibited

Further, it is important to note that providing a phone number to a telemarketer for any purpose may be deemed consent to receive telemarketing communications that may otherwise be prohibited.
