These calls involve companies calling to solicit consumers for their automobile warranty policies.
Do Not Call List Violations
Several companies have been calling to solicit consumers for their warranty policies. The calls violate multiple law, can can be stopped and the victims can get compensation. First, many homeowners have listed their name on the Do Not Call List. See Federal Do Not Call List The Do Not Call List: Questions and Answers. Secondly, the federal law prohibits robocalls to a cellphone without permission. Thirdly, the New Jersey Telemarketing Statute requires disclosure of the calling number and company name at the beginning of the call.
Remedies For Unwanted Calls
Consumers can be entitled to compensation for violations. In such cases, attorney’s fees will be paid by the company or taken from the settlement.
Problem With Warranty Companies
There are a large number of hidden exclusions. If someone failed to have a required oil or transmission fluid change, the warranty might not be honored. Some companies will pay a limited reimbursement or claim that the owner abused the vehicle. For example, if a car overheats, and the driver steers a mile to the nearest service station, the warranty company might claim the failure to stop invalidates coverage.
