Suing companies is normally a major headache and pretty expensive. However, you can easily sue telemarketing companies through your local small claims court. It is even possible to file the claim online.
First, you have to tell them you want on their Do Not Call list and tell them to send you a copy of the list. They can call you once more after that as an “oops” call. If you never receive the DNC list, then you can sue, even if they never call again. However, after the one “oops” call, you can sue them for every additional call for $500 each time.
It is important to make a call log of the phone calls. It is smart to be polite and make sure you get their name, number, and company information. Then tell them you are exercising your rights and ask for the DNC list and to be placed on it.
Once you’ve filed, make sure you are prepared for court. Small claims court is usually overloaded, so it is key to be prepared, clear, and to the point with the judge.
