Have you ever found yourself listening to a voice message you received even though the phone never rang only to find out it was a business trying to sell you something? You might have pondered whether or not this was legal if you’re on the Do Not Call Registry. If you’ve received a voice message like the one just described, it’s time to contact the ringless voicemail lawsuit lawyers at Shamis & Gentile, P.A.
What Are Ringless Voicemails?
Ringless Voicemails are the latest attempt by telemarketers and debt collectors to reach the masses. The calls are quietly deposited through a backdoor, directly into a voicemail box — to the surprise and (presumably) irritation of the recipient, who cannot do anything to block them.
Telemarketing concerns previously petitioned the Federal Communications, arguing that because the phone didn’t ring, they weren’t violating Do Not Call Registry. Regulations often struggle to keep up with technology, but in this case, it was the negative publicity from the petition that forced the party to withdraw it before the FCC made an official ruling.
People Want These Workarounds to Stop
Regardless, people are upset. And they should be. States argue that the robotic nature of the ringless voicemail makes call-blocking apps useless while also putting customers at the mercy of these companies who can send out massive amounts of these types of messages daily. This means these companies can send out messages and there’s nothing you can do to block them.
It’s also important to point out though that charitable groups, schools, people conducting surveys, and non-profits do not have to comply with the Do Not Call Registry due to the nature of their intentions.
Is there financial harm in receiving a ringless voicemail?
Without question. Granting companies a free pass to push ringless voicemail messages to consumers’ phones just adds more robocalls and causes significant financial harm to those who are charged for checking their messages.
