Are You Receiving Unsolicited Text Messages?
Spam text messages are unsolicited texts that telemarketing companies send to unsuspecting consumers. They are often used for advertising; many people find them bothersome and intrusive. Thankfully, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) of 1991 prohibits telemarketers from sending unwanted and repeated texts and phone calls to consumers. Therefore, unsolicited spam text messages are illegal. If you are a victim of spam SMS text messages, you should save the messages. For example, you can take a screenshot of spam texts. You should also document the phone number that is sending the spam. Finally, you must contact an experienced text message lawyer. They will help you report the telemarketer and get the compensation you deserve. Many people don’t act when they receive spam messages because they are unaware that spam from telemarketers can be illegal. Realize that your time and privacy matter. You shouldn’t have to deal with spam text messages.
