We stop the spam and you get compensated

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

The  North Carolina TSA (Telephone Solicitation Act) provides consumers with a powerful means of legal recourse to these violating messages and calls. Consumers have the right to file a lawsuit for each violation, where they were contacted without express invitation or permission.

A violation of the TSA may entitle you to $500, and if a company has messaged you multiple times, you may be able to recover up to $5,000 or more for those calls or texts.

If you are receiving calls or texts messages in violation of the North Carolina TSA, 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 North Carolina TSA just apply to spam telemarketers?

No. The North Carolina TSA prohibits ANY voice or text communication made through an auto-dialer to a person’s phone, unless that person first gave express permission to be contacted in writing. The law applies to telemarketers, banks, collection agencies, credit card companies, and any other company that uses an auto-dialer to make these calls or texts.

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

Yes. The North Carolina TSA prohibits texts and calls after a consumer has told them to stop. The TSA also requires companies to regularly maintain and abide by an internal do not call list of those people who have requested not to be contacted. If you’ve told a company not to continue contacting you and they have not listened, you may be entitled to recover damages from $500-$5000 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.

I am on the National Do Not Call Registry and still getting telemarketing calls. Is this legal?

No. If you are on the national DNC Registry and receive a telemarketing call or text from a telemarketer, you can likely sue that caller for monetary compensation for each and every message.

How much could I recover for unsolicited calls or texts?

Every call or text message that violates the North Carolina TSA means recoverable damages for a consumer. $500 for the first violation, $1000 for the second violation, and $5000 for the third and any other violation that occurs within two years of the first violating call or text.

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.
