Like junk mail and junk calls, junk texts are a form of advertising utilized by some companies to garner more customers. At best, junk texts are annoying. At worst, they can be phishing scams designed to trick you into giving away personal information. In all cases, unless you have given your express permission to receive the text, it is most likely in violation of your rights under the TCPA.
Spam texting was made illegal four years ago, but that has not stopped some companied from trying to find creative work-arounds that enable them to continue harassing cellphone owners. If you receive one of these, you may be entitled to compensation.

It is important to remember that texts from companies you have agreed to receive communications from or those from existing business contacts do not qualify as spam. If you have made a request to stop receiving the texts and been ignored however, you may have cause to file suit. Our TCPA attorneys will investigate your claim to determine if laws have been violated and take your case as far as needed to secure for you the compensation you are due.
