Your Guide to Debt and Bankruptcy

About 10 years ago, I secured my dream job with one of the largest corporations in the country. The job came with a substantial increase in pay and I soon looked for a large house for my family. After living the life I dreamed of, I was let go from my current position. I had a large amount of savings, but the economy took a turn for the worse and savings were quickly drained. I soon became stressed about finances. I could not pay the mortgage and bill collectors started to call my house. I refused to be defeated though, so I met with a bankruptcy attorney instead. I live a much simpler life now with my family, and I want you to know that financial stress does not have to affect you for years. Read my blog to learn about bankruptcy, debt laws, and how to hire an attorney.

How To Receive Hundreds Of Dollars For Each Spam Call

If you do not want to be spammed with unsolicited phone calls, it's always a good idea to get placed on a Do Not Call registry. Unfortunately, even when your phone is placed on the registry, you will continue to receive unwanted phone calls. For this reason, you'll want to get in contact with a lawyer who specializes in stopping robocalls. Not only can you send a message to the scammers who send so many robocalls but you might also be able to earn some money in the process.

How the Do Not Call Registry Works

The purpose of the Do Not Call registry is to stop legitimate companies that abide by the law. While sales representatives who work for these companies will not call you, this service will have no impact on shady companies and scammers who often use spoofed phone numbers.

Even though you will receive illegal calls even if you are on the Do Not Call registry, you will be able to identify calls that are breaking the law much more easily and you may be able to take legal action.

How to Stop Spam Calls

You are allowed to ask an individual calling you to stop calling your phone number. If they continue to call after you request that they stop, you may have a legal claim and will be able to receive hundreds of dollars for each phone call or text. You will have a claim if a telemarketer calls you even when you are on the Do Not Call registry. 

How to Stop Robocalls

A company can only use robocalls if you have given them explicit permission to do so. For example, if you are already a customer and have opted in to receiving automated calls, they will then be able to send these messages without having broken the law. Therefore, the first step is to speak with a lawyer to try to determine if the calls are legal. If you have opted in, the company must also provide you with a way to opt out.

Why You Must Act Now

If you have a claim, you will need to file it as soon as possible. You only have a few years to file a claim before the statute of limitations has run out. The more time that has passed, the harder it will be to prove that you have received unsolicited spam calls. Therefore, you'll want to get in contact with a lawyer as soon as possible.

If you are looking to stop spam calls, look into getting placed on a Do Not Call registry.
