HOUSTON – We’ve received more than 600 comments on our Facebook Live explaining how to turn robocalls into cash.
If you missed Amy Davis' story, read it by clicking on the hyperlink below.
Here are answers to the top 5 most common questions:
Can you get money for robocalls to landlines?
No, the section of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act that allows consumers to collect money from robocallers only applies to cellphones. This is because lawmakers realized that unwanted phone calls to your cellphone can cost you money in minutes when you answer the calls.
Why do I have to buy the kit you told us about in the story to get the money?
As I stated in the story, you don’t have to buy the kit, but it will make it easier for people who don’t know how to do much research to find the corporate offices of a company and get the name of the CEO and registered agent of the company. If you don’t know how to write a demand letter and you don’t want to try, you can get a template demand letter in the kit that lets you fill in the blanks with the name of the company calling you, etc.
