By identifying professional litigator cell owners before contacting them, you can head off TCPA problems before they occur. Although the total number of people who complain is small, these are the people that can really hurt you.
They know the game. They know who to hire. And after you call it’s too late. There’s no substitute for meticulous tracking of litigators against companies calling cell owners here. It’s only a few, less than 85,000, and growing 1500 to 2500 per month, but it’s the well-educated and capable few that sue over and over. You don’t want to be calling these people.
This is the professional call you want to avoid as a result of your B2C - and now B2B communications: "You'll need to write me a check for $6,000 or I’m bringing you to court. You contacted my business mobile phone, so obviously you’re not scrubbing cells. You're also not registered with the National and State Do Not Call Lists, as my number is on those also. I know you are using a predictive dialer because of the pause at the beginning of your call – another express written permission violation under the TCPA. I assume you won't want to challenge me since the wireless laws changed October 16th, 2014 to become consumer/business agnostic. As you know, it will cost you a lot more than $6,000 to attempt to defend yourself - And as you've undoubtedly made lots of these types of communications, I'll be sure to ask for class action status if you do go to court.”
