TAMPA — A Florida woman has filed a lawsuit claiming she received more than 1,800 robocalls about a bill she was paying.
Stevens tried to get Conn’s to stop by writing “quit calling,” in a memo of a check. She also explained to the company during a recorded call that her grandmother was on her death bed and asked them to stop contacting her, according to WFTS.
Federal law prohibits most prerecorded telemarketing calls, also known as robocalls, unless the telemarketer has the consumer's prior written authorization to transmit such calls. The Federal Trade Commission has even set up a national Do Not Call Registry where consumers can sign up to limit such calls.
Stevens’ case is now going to trial, WFTS reported.
