Laws Regarding Telemarketer Harassment

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) prohibits certain types of solicitation by telemarketers and provides remedies for individuals who are subject to harassment from telemarketers. This includes specific restrictions on the use of automated robo-calls, prerecorded messages, and messages sent via text, fax, or voice mail.

The law requires that telemarketers:

  • Refrain from contacting consumers who have registered on a Do Not Call list
  • Abide by all specific rules for landline telephones, cell phones, and faxes
  • Avoid calling residences earlier than 8 am or later than 9 pm
  • Provide their name and reason for the telephone call
  • Avoid sending spam and unsolicited text messages

If you are being harassed by a telemarketer, there are a few steps you should take. Register with the federal Do Not Call List, request that the telemarketer put you on their do not call list orally and in writing, and keep a written record of all contact. When harassment continues, contact our law firm to learn more about the legal remedies that are available to you.

Recovering Damages for Telemarketer Harassment

The TCPA allows victims of harassment to sue for compensation for violations of the law in the amount of $500 per call, text, or fax. New York state law provides civil penalties of $1,000 - $2,000 per violation.
