While you've been building your business, professional consumer Do Not Call and TCPA Litigators have been sharpening their skills. To the point where they're just waiting for you to call. Big catalogue companies, insurance businesses and marketers have a communication problem. Namely - "Do we have a leg to stand on if our customers and prospects give us a hard time about call compliance?" [Click Video]
We're only talking about not calling 90,000 of the 300 Million cells out there.
And 40% of these folks have sued more than once under the statutes. So you're not going to lose millions of dollars. But you might in the class actions they'll seek by calling em'. And you'll have to settle, defend, or go to court!
Oh I know, your IT guys have built up a robust defense against the Do Not Call Laws.
Downloading National and State Lists. Renewing subscriptions. Not calling on Holidays. Certifying lead lists against potential legal altercations through various brokers.
But what about vexatious litigant traps. Bogus information requests from your website - looking for inappropriate callback methods, text language or auto-dialing without permissions. And what about the banks of cell numbers predatory litigants purchase, just waiting to ensnarl unsuspecting sales and follow-up teams.
Once you've engaged, it's too late.
They know how to put your company in a world of compliance hurt. Because they always find something.
Did you know that 80% of TCPA lawsuits include some sort of "consent to call" accusation?
Well, they do.
Did you know that the FCC has neglected to define the difference between an Automatic Telephone Dialing System and Manual Click to Call?
Well, they most certainly do.
- Did you know the FCC has essentially elected to let these Call Prohibitions play out in the courts? Declining to clarify key components?
- The FCC does!
So we're not looking to engage in mobile and landline contact litigation today. Because, as defense attorneys will be the first to say: the best prediction we can give on winning is...well...maybe.
So take a serious look at simple, pro-active, preventative call compliance measures. Like a Previous TCPA Litigant Scrub as part of your in-house call campaign procedures.
It's easy, it's inexpensive, (and it'll help you sleep at night.)
