Do you hate telemarketers? Do you feel powerless to do anything about it? Unsolicited telemarketing is annoying, but as you may know, it’s often illegal as well. In the United States, there are various laws designed to protect you such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and of course, the National Do No Call Registry. So, if you get an unsolicited call, what do you do? Which laws does it violate? How do you report it? How much is the fine and how much are you entitled to receive in damages? How much time will it take? All of these issues get complicated and most people don’t hassle with it.
The Jolly Roger Telephone Company is here to help you report these violations!
Here’s how it works. First, you need to sign up for the Jolly Roger Telephone Service. Then, when you get an unsolicited telemarketing call, transfer or conference them into one of my helpful bots. The bot will keep the telemarketer engaged and may get some information out of the telemarketer such as their organization and name. At the end of the call, you will get an email from me, which will include a unique number and a link to a web page where you can fill out some additional information about the call. I will aggregate these reports and work with some class action attorneys who specialize in telemarketing violations. These class action attorneys will work with you to identify the offending company and file the claims. These attorneys will become YOUR attorneys and, if they are able to successfully sue the telemarketing company for damages, you might be able to get compensation! There’s tons of legal mumbo jumbo surrounding this, but it all starts with you sending your telemarketer to me and then reporting the violation afterward.
So please work with me to get as many of these violators off our phones!
