Telemarketers using robocalls is incredibly annoying. And if you ask to have them stopped and they keep coming – it’s illegal. That’s how one man in Texas got paid, and he’s sharing his info so that others can too. By suing telemarketers.
Dan Graham is a CPA in Texas and according to Fox 13 News, he’s been suing telemarketers who break the law “The gross is over $105,000 at this point.”
How’d he do it? Read on.
First he says, put your name on the Do Not Call Registry. After that, you’ll need to start answering those calls. Document when they called and give them just enough information to find out who they are. Then politely end the conversation and call the business back. Ask them to stop calling you. Some will. But – if you get another call from the same business, it’s time to get paid. You’ll need this document, it’s the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
Next up, sue the business in small claims court. You’ll need to show your documentation on when they called and how many times they’ve called. Once you’ve shown the law is on your side and that they’ve legally wronged you, it’s time for the settlement. If they’ve violated the law repeatedly this can be in the thousands of dollars.
Here’s his handy how-to video:

I’m not a lawyer, this is not legal advice. But I do hate telemarketer robocalls as much as you do.
