Asked in Consumer Law and Civil Rights for Tennessee

Q: Ive got a company calling me 18 times in the past 5 days. It is not a collection company, its a mortgage company. Help

They are not my mortgage company, and i am at the point of screaming into the phone that i do not want to talk to them. I am a truck driver so multiple calls from a company that I have nothing to do with is extremely distracting and they seem not to get the hint. I have declined their calls except when I miss the call.

A: It sounds like you have told them not to call you- I suggest you block the number.

A: If the calls are automated and you have no business relationship with the mortgage company, you might be entitled to statutory damages under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. If you answer the calls and you hear an automated voice prior to speaking to a live representative, you should reach out to a consumer protection attorney for help.
