Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) was enacted to restrict unwanted electronic commercial communications. The TCPA limits solicitations commonly known as telemarketing. It also restricts use of certain autodialing technologies, pre-recorded “robocalls,” misuse of fax machines, and spam texts. TCPA requires identification and contact information to be included with messages sent using such devices. The TCPA also mandates business respect the National Do Not Call Registry. Plaintiffs may recover up to $1,500 per violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Debt collectors have been known to violate the act by aggressively using pre-recorded robo-calls to collect alleged debts.
