The Telephone Consumer Protection Act

A Law that Could Make you Some Money


The Telephone Consumer Protection Act is a powerful (fairly) new law aimed at businesses that call you on your cell phone without being invited – or that send you annoying, unsolicited faxes. Unfortunately, there are all too many companies that do this. Fortunately, every time they do do it, they are liable to you for $500 (plus the costs of the suit and – if you actually do have real damages – for any actual damages you can show, if they are more than the $500.
