I received unwanted robocalls, telemarketing calls, and text messages. Am I entitled to compensation?

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) prohibits anyone from calling you using a prerecorded or synthetic voice without your prior consent. It also makes it illegal for telemarketers to call or text your residential telephone (cell phone or landline) if your number is listed on the National Do-Not-Call Registry. People who receive unsolicited calls and texts may be eligible for between $500 and $1,500 per violation.
