Investigation of H&R Block TCPA Violations

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) protects consumers from receiving harassing phone calls and messages.  The Act prohibits debt-collectors and telemarketers from using automatic dialing systems and prerecorded voice messages to call you without your prior express consent. Any person who has received calls or messages that are in violation of the TCPA may be able to file a lawsuit.

A recently filed lawsuit alleges that an affiliate of H&R Block has been sending prerecorded telemarketing messages to consumers in an effort to promote  their Emerald-branded financial products.

More Details Concerning TCPA Violations

Telephone solicitors may not call your residence prior to 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.  Regardless of whether a solicitor talks to you or leaves a voicemail, he or she must provide an option for you to opt out of the calls.  When answering a call, this option must be given at the beginning of the message, and when leaving voicemails, callers must provide toll-free call-back numbers so you can add your phone number to a do-not-call list.  Any artificial or prerecorded messages delivered by an automatic dialing system must identify the caller at the beginning of the message.

How to Document Evidence of Potential TCPA Violations

We recommend that you take the following steps to document evidence of potential TCPA violations:

  • When you receive incoming calls, you should always request the caller’s name and contact information in order to maintain a written record of the call. We suggest that you write down the date and time of the call as well as a brief description of the conversation that took place or the pre-recorded message.
  • If you received unwanted calls or messages on your cell phone, please save the call logs, text messages, and your cell phone bills.
  • If you received an unauthorized text message, please save a screenshot and send it to us. You can upload it by completing our online survey here.
  • Please save voicemails that you believe came from auto dialers or telemarketers.
  • If you ever sent a letter, text or email to stop receiving calls or texts, please keep a copy for us to review.
