Spam Texting or Robo Calling your Cell?
When a company sends out spam text messages to you,
you can sue them for between $500 per text –
and up to $1500 per text if the company willfully violated the law.
This is the same law that forbids robo-dialing, robocalling and recorded messages to cell phone without your consent.

Here’s the law they are violating.
Under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, CLICK HERE FOR COPY -> (“TCPA”) and Federal Communications Commission regulations,
it is illegal for a company to send text messages to or robo-dial your cell phone
unless the consumer gave consent to receive the message or the message was sent for emergency reasons. See Satterfield v. Simon and Schuster, Inc. *
This applies even if the consumer has not placed their cell phone on the Do-Not-Call list.
* In the case of Satterfield v. Simon and Schuster, Inc. a federal court of appeals ruled that texting is as much a violation of the TCPA as calls. (Also see 2003 TCPA Order, 18 FCC Rcd at 14115, para. 165 (noting that text messaging is a form of communication used primarily between telephones and is therefore consistent with the definition of a “call”).
Simply stated, the court held that a “text” is the same as a “call,” and that the damages of $500 to $1500 per call applied to text messages including spam.
