Why TCPA Litigator List?The Telephone Consumer Protection Act, TCPA, is one of the most abused regulations in the United States. The intent of the TCPA is to stop unsolicited calls to protect people’s privacy. Congress enacted the TCPA under the authority of the FCC in 1991. At the time, Congress did not take into account the advances in telecommunication technology. Since then, there has been a proliferation of smart phones, texting and automated telephone dialer systems that the TCPA regulation has failed to adequately address. The few FCC reforms have led to more abuse rather than less. In 2015, the FCC issued an Omnibus TCPA Declaratory Ruling that set off a firestorm of litigation. The number of TCPA cases tripled. For the first time, B2B calls and text messaging were subjected to the TCPA. As a result, many small businesses are being sued for tens of thousands of dollars for a single phone call. Because there is no cap to a TCPA lawsuits, TCPA attorneys are able to file multi-million-dollar class actions. The legal fees to defend a TCPA lawsuit are astronomical. Because these legal fees are not recoverable, most companies choose to settle. The TCPA settlement amounts have been increasing over the last several years from a few thousand dollars to the tens of thousands of dollars. Settling only encourages more lawsuits. Until there is meaningful TCPA reform, the TCPA Litigator List believes the best solution is for companies simply not call the litigators in the first place by actively suppressing their calling lists through our subscription services.

Since there is no cap on damages, Visalus was hit with a $925 million dollar judgement, the largest TCPA judgment to date.Large Settlements

More importantly are the indirect effects of the TCPA demand letters and lawsuits have, which include breach of contracts and termination of business relationships. The TCPA regulation does not provided a protective veil. All offending TCPA parties can be held in violation. Ask yourself, can your business afford to lose a client over a TCPA violation?
About UsWe formed the TCPA Litigator List to be the most comprehensive and technologically advanced phone number suppression company in the industry. In 2018, our sister company engaged in B2B lead generation was hit with a five-million-dollar class action over two phone calls to a professional TCPA Litigator. For eight years, our sister company never received a complaint. With the proliferation of TCPA lawsuits, starting in 2015, we started to get sued. We tried various phone scrubbing services. They were expensive and largely inadequate. Many of these phone scrubbing companies compiled the phone numbers listed in the lawsuits and not the all the phone numbers registered and/or associated with the TCPA litigators. Our company believed we could build a better TCPA list service with more advanced technology. Our goal has been to provide the maximum protection against all the known TCPA litigators in the United States. In 2019, we began compiling TCPA troll phone numbers. (TCPA troll is an individual who sends demand letters but has never sued). We are the only company that does that. We also developed our proprietary Name Recognition Algorithm in response to the threat of TCPA trac phone threat. We have the fastest API in the industry. In addition, our company advocates for TCPA reform. We have succeeded in court against a few professional TCPA litigators.
