Yes! Your tip for this month is to sue your telemarketer!
Telemarketers must follow the same guidelines as debt collectors, banks, credit card agencies and any other company making robocalls, or calls in person, and they rarely do.
If your rights, as defined by federal law, have been violated and you’re sick of telemarketers blowing up your phone, you may be able to seek compensation for each violation through a lawsuit. The TCPA allows consumers to seek $500 per illegal robocall and $1,500 per illegal robocall that was made willfully.
What not to do: These calls are so aggravating, the common response is to yell, slam the phone or simply let it go to voice mail. Do none of the above.
Instead do this:
Take the call, stay calm and confirm who the caller is and then politely hang up. Keep a record of what company called. Now when they call again, take a screenshot of the incoming calls and keep the record of those.
