There is no denying that consumers need protection. At the Weitz Firm, our Philadelphia consumer rights attorneys thoroughly understand the laws surrounding unfair practices, particularly concerning the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). We are here to hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions and secure compensation for victims of these illegal practices.
Since 1991, certain types of unsolicited calls, texts, and faxes had been prohibited. More recently, the National Do-Not-Call Registry (DNC) has been established to protect consumers throughout the United States from unwanted telemarketing calls.
The TCPA allows an individual to recover statutory damages in the amount of $500 to $1,500 per call, text, or fax that violates the TCPA.
Just because somebody owes a debt does not mean that they deserve to be subjected to harassment or illegal or unfair practices by debt collectors. The FDCPA prohibits various types of abusive, deceptive, or unfair debt collection practices in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. This law sets the boundaries debt collectors must operate in and provides consumers with recourse if debt collectors do not follow the rules.
Any person who has been the victim of illegal or unfair debt collection practices may be entitled to various types of actual and statutory damages up to $1,000 per incident.
