Standing Up To Illegal Telemarketing

Via I am happy to point you to a case study in how to sue a telemarketer who has called you illegally. The telemarketer in question violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 in two ways: first, by calling a residential number outside of the allowed 8am-9pm time block, and second, by calling a residential number to play them an unsolicited pre-recorded or artificial message. Too bad for the telemarketer, they woke up a lawyer, and that one call cost them a cool $500. We should all be doing this. Next up, spammers!
