We stop the spam and you get compensated

Unsolicited calls and text messages have become a regular annoyance of your life.

The FTSA (Florida Telephone Solicitation Act ) provides consumers with a powerful means of legal recourse to these violating calls and texts. Consumers have the right to file a lawsuit for each violation, where they were contacted without prior express written permission.

You may be able to recover $500 for each call or text which violates the FTSA. These amounts can be tripled to $1,500 if the call was a willful violation of the law.

If you are receiving calls or texts in violation of the FTSA, you should keep a written record of the contact and tell the caller to stop. A best practice is to take a screenshot of the call or text.

Marcus & Zelman has a wealth of experience representing people who have received unwanted calls and texts nationwide, and have helped consumers like you recover thousands of dollars for telemarketing violations. We are here to help you with a FREE assessment of any potential lawsuits you may be able to bring.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the FTSA just apply to spam telemarketers?

No. The FTSA prohibits ANY voice or text communication made through an auto-dialer to a person’s phone, unless that person first gave prior express written permission to be contacted. The law applies to any company that uses an auto-dialer to make these calls or texts for “consumer goods or services”.

What is prior express written consent under the FTSA?

The FTSA has strict guidelines for what consent makes it okay to market to you with calls or texts. “Prior express written consent” requires 1) your signature; 2) a clear disclosure that the agreement is for marketing calls and texts; 3) your telephone number; and 4) a clear disclosure that you are agreeing to be marketed to AND that you are NOT required to agree to complete a purchase for any goods or services.

If any of these elements are missing, you may have a claim for a violation of the FTSA for any texts or calls.

I’ve asked a telemarketer to stop calling me, but they haven’t. Is there something I can do?

Yes. The FTSA requires companies to cease calling or messaging a number after the consumer has communicated that they do not want to be contacted. Basically, under the FTSA, STOP means STOP.

If you’ve told a company you do not want to be contacted anymore and they have not listened, you may be entitled to recover damages for each and every message or call after you requested that they stop.

Does the law also apply to spam text messages?

Yes. If the text message was sent with an autodialer, you may be able to obtain a monetary recovery for each and every message.

How much could I recover for unsolicited calls or texts?

Every call or text message that violates the FTSA means recoverable damages for a consumer. The FTSA calls for $500 for each call or text which violates the FTSA. These amounts can be tripled to $1,500 if the call was a willful or knowing violation of the law.

Client Testimonies

Last year, I broke my elbow at an event where I slipped and fell really hard. I was unable to resume my everyday tasks for months and was in severe pain. At first, I was hesitant to get an attorney. When I finally got the courage to reach out, I knew I could trust the Marcus and Zelman team. They were there for me every step of the way and guided me through this difficult time. From physical therapy, doctors and insurance companies they handled everything seamlessly. I was very impressed by their professionalism, honesty and the result felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
Becky from New Jersey / Personal Injury
Imagine calling your mortgage broker and seeking a new mortgage to purchase your retirement home and being told you are currently two months behind on your current mortgage and your credit score has plummeted. Knowing this to be a mistake, I called my mortgage company who, in short, refused to correct their mistake. My credit was so impacted that I couldn't borrow money to do the needed repairs to be completed before moving into our new home on the lake. I maxed out ever credit card and depleted our savings to move in. It was humiliating! After contacting Marcus & Zelman, things began to turn around. The tenacity and unwavering effort they put into my case put me at ease. I felt they would make this wrong - right. The attorneys and I spoke often and were available immediately to speak to me whenever I called. The firm remained focused on the objective to make me whole again.
Peter from Massachusetts / Credit Reporting Errors
The calls I was receiving were becoming more and more stressful, but thankfully I had Marcus and Zelman taking control of the situation. Their efforts helped give me the peace of mind I needed. They were always very responsive and informed me of what to expect whenever any future occurrence would arise that I needed to know about. My experience with Marcus and Zelman was phenomenal and I couldn’t recommend them more.
