West Virginia Laws Against Telephone Harassment
You’ve probably heard of the national Do-Not-Call Registry, which covers unwanted telemarketing calls. With few exceptions, telemarketers cannot call you if your number is on the registry. Companies that call you anyway may be subject to fines by the FCC.
West Virginia telephone harassment laws are unique. If a telemarketer harasses you, you may be able to seek penalties and damages as well as make the telemarketer pay your attorney fees. Examples of telephone harassment include:
- Repeated phone calls
- Obscene phone calls
- Threats against a person or his or her property
- Creditor harassment
Our firm also represents individuals who are repeatedly wrongly called and harassed by creditors for debt that is not their own. This could include debt that belongs to a divorced spouse, someone with the same name, someone with the same Social Security number or a deceased relative. Our lawyers will advocate on your behalf to put a stop to the harassment, preventing the creditors from contacting you again.
West Virginia Consumer Credit And Protection Act (WVCCPA)
Our laws regulating debt collectors in West Virginia are some of the strongest in the nation. You don’t have to suffer repeated debt collection calls. Our experience is that most people who are being harassed by debt collectors have found themselves in debt due to reasons beyond their control such as health problems or loss of employment.
