The TCPA governs certain telemarketing calls, autodialed calls, prerecorded calls, text messages and unsolicited faxes as well as debt collection calls whereby a debtor is attempting to collect a debt using an autodialer. The TCPA prohibits phone calls and text messages to a mobile phone using an automatic telephone dialing system and artificial or prerecorded voice message without the express consent of the called party. The law governing the TCPA is implemented by regulations set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
Considered one of the most dangerous consumer protection statutes, especially since the FCC broadened the rights of call recipients to sue, the TCPA carries statutory damage provisions of between $500 and $1,500 per call, text message or violation.
