Culik Law Representing Clients For Illegal Unwanted Text Messages or Phone Solicitations

Massachusetts consumer protection law firm offers representation on relevant tech violations.

BOSTON, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Consumers have a new option for asserting their rights against unwanted spam text messages and telemarketers. The consumer protection law firm Culik Law is accepting cases under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the law that prohibits these annoying intrusions.

Although many people are not aware of it, the TCPA prohibits telemarketers from sending spam text messages to cell phones or using automated phone dialers to sell products and services. Culik Law hopes to be a representative these consumers can turn to if they receive these types of annoying communications.

Businesses often use autodialers (computerized dialing systems) to make the initial phone call for them, rather than use human beings. But the use of these autodialers is illegal unless the business has permission, which most businesses do not. Consumers can tell if an autodialer called them because sometimes there is a delay before the call is connected, there is a clicking sound, or they are prompted to press a number to continue.

A record of these communications should always be kept. In the case of calls, people should write down the date, the company, and name of the person who called them. And in the case of text messages, people should not delete them, as they are evidence of illegal sales practices.

"People are having their rights violated every day by these irritating sales tactics," said Attorney Josef Culik, President of Culik Law. "All that is needed for a viable settlement is for consumers to save the evidence and contact us."

According to current laws, there is significant compensation for these violations. If a business calls or texts a consumer illegally, the consumer may be entitled to be paid $500 per violation pursuant to the TCPA.
