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.
