Most of the time, businesses that are sending spam text messages are attempting to attract consumers to their service or product. By responding to an unsolicited spam text message other than "stop," your phone number will likely be tagged as valid and disseminated to scammers and increasing your odds of receiving more spam junk messages. Scammers often use many different techniques to get unsuspecting consumers to give out personal information. These are often spam text messages requesting some type of action in exchange for money, gift cards, or other financial gains.
The first step to stopping harassing spam text messages should be to add your number to the national Do-Not-Call registry and texting "stop." Our team will review and assess your claim and protect your rights. We will determine if you are entitled to a recovery of at least $500 for each text message you received after requesting "stop," and if your claims are eligible for a nationwide class action lawsuit. Class action lawsuits are one of the most effective actions consumers can take to stop unwanted spam text messages.
The registry is a tool intended for businesses to establish best practices. The law requires businesses to keep records of numbers on the registry and avoid calling those numbers. Sometimes, a number is called inadvertently -for example when the owner of the number has changed. These types of accidental calls are not considered violations. The government does not have the ability to stop phone calls from being made. If you are receiving unwanted solicitations, contact the FTC and our attorneys. We will work on your behalf to stop the calls and text messages.
Most of the time, calls and text messages to numbers on the Do-Not-Call registry result from consumers inadvertently “consenting” to marketing. When you purchase something online and provide a phone number, you may be signing up to receive messages. It is best to contact our spam text message lawyer so we may conduct a thorough, independent investigation of your claim, calculate your damages, and advise you on all of your legal options.
The IRS will never request sensitive personal information through text message. Any message you receive from a government agency requesting personal information should be regarded as highly suspicious. You should not respond, but instead, take a screenshot of the message, and contact our legal team.
Most of the time, these messages are the result of inadvertent subscriptions or solicitations. Companies often gather information at events by having people fill out raffle tickets for prizes. The information they gather can be used for solicitations in the future without violating the law. You will need to request that the company stop sending you offers. If the offers do not stop after you have made a request, contact our legal team for help. Generally, it is a best practice to avoid freely giving out person information such as a mailing address and phone number.
When you take a screenshot of a text message, you are preserving the information about that message. For example, the picture will include a date and time stamp, clearly identifying when you received the message. Our lawyer uses this information to prove the text message happened and was unwanted. Without a screenshot, proving a claim would be very challenging.
You can file a complaint against businesses using text message solicitations or robocalls through the FCC consumer complaints portal. You can also contact our text message lawyers so we may help with the claim.
Yes. In fact, while many calls come from small businesses or out-of-country scammers, a large number of TCPA violation claims are against major corporations such as AT&T, Walmart, Wells Fargo, and others.
