Robocalls and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act

STOP UNWANTED PHONE CALLS AND TEXT MESSAGES

Federal and state laws strictly regulate what kinds of messages can be sent to your cell phone.  No one can send an advertising text message to your cell phone without your prior express written consent.  If a company sends unauthorized text messages to you, it can clog up your phone's memory and cost you money, in addition to the annoyance and privacy invasion it causes. Call the lawyers at Gordon, Wolf & Carney to find out how the TCPA protects you from unsolicited phone calls and text messages.
