What Qualifies as Spam Texts Under the Law?

Spam texts are essentially unsolicited messages that are sent to your mobile device without your consent. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) have established guidelines to protect consumers from these unwanted communications. According to the TCPA, any message that is sent to a mobile device using an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS) or pre-recorded voice without the recipient’s prior express consent is considered a spam text.

Consent for receiving these messages must be given in writing or electronically, and it cannot be assumed or obtained through deceptive practices. This means that if you haven’t explicitly provided your consent to receive text messages from a specific sender, any messages you receive from them could be classified as spam.

TCPA Claims for Spam Texts

If you have been receiving spam texts, you have the right to take legal action to stop the unwanted communications and seek compensation for any damages you may have suffered. Under the TCPA, individuals who have received spam texts can file a claim against the sender and potentially recover up to $1,500 per violation.

To file a successful TCPA claim, our attorneys can gather evidence of the spam texts, including the sender’s phone number, the dates and times of the messages, and any other relevant information. It’s essential to keep records of these texts to strengthen your case.
