How to Sue a Telemarketer.
Did you know the Do Not Call laws are really set-up as civil laws?
The Do Not Call laws are not really criminal laws. They’re simply a way for any home-owner to sue a company that has been harassing them with illegal telemarketing calls. This puts the responsibility of stopping telemaketing calls on the public. Yes, you can report phone numbers to the national Do Not Call registry, but as millions of people have come to realize, that really doesn’t help.
Yes, the Do Not Call registry has significantly reduced the number of calls from legitimate, law-abiding companies. It has not slowed the shady companies down at all.
You cannot sue a company if you don’t know the name of the company. Ask the next telemarketer the name of their company, and if they don’t tell you, it’s because they don’t want you to know. If you want to make a a few thousand dollars, then print the list of 10 questions to ask a telemarketer and keep it next to your phone. These are the questions that, if not answered correctly, allows you to sue for $500 per question. If nothing else, it’s fun to listen to the idiot on the other line squirm as you ask these questions.

The thing to remember in this process is that you really don’t want to go to court. Since you’ll file in your local courts, it will cost the company more to fly a lawyer out to defend them in your district than it will to pay you.
