Understanding Consumer Protection Law
As a consumer, we are protected under certain laws. It is up to a business to build and maintain our trust. Unfortunately, they don’t always take this so seriously. Often, we can be taken advantage of and are then forced to deal with consequences to actions that weren’t ours in the first place. At Healey Law LLC, we have more than 30 years of experience helping consumers throughout Missouri.
Contacting You Without Your Consent
From promotions to billing errors and debt collectors, each business must follow Missouri laws. This doesn’t always happen. When it does, you need a lawyer who will come to your defense and fight for your rights. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) protects consumers from receiving auto-dialed or pre-recorded messages from banks, telemarketers and other businesses.
Some debt collectors call you at all hours of the day and night. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you from this. Whether you are in debt or not, they legally cannot contact your family members or call you in the early hours of the morning or late at night. Some even make false threats — another thing that is illegal.
