Man Wins $100,000 Suing Robo-callers, Shares How You Can Do It Too

Finally!! Someone who hates robo-callers as much as we do, GETS THE ULTIMATE REVENGE...$100,000! Now he wants to share with us, how we can sue for $$ as well. Endless robo-calls to our cell phones is beyond annoying AND ILLEGAL, if you haven't given permission. What can you do about it? Fox news says, Dan Graham, a CPA who works in Dallas, Texas is turning annoying telemarketing robocalls into cash. He started filing lawsuits, and now shares with other consumers how to do the same. 

First, put your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry, he says. It takes 30 days. And then he wants you to 'bait them' to get more info. For example, Dan said "Tell me more. What’s your name? My name is Dan. We’re selling a car warranty,'" Graham pretended. "Give them some car information. ‘I drive a 2016 Toyota Camry. Tell me more, tell me more, I’m interested.’" Graham says he then reaches out to the company to ask them to stop the illegal practice. He says some have. But when they don't, he sues them in small claims court for violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Settlements range from $500 to thousands of dollars, depending on how many times they've called. "They’re going to reach out to you and ask for more details. At this point, you should have documented this pretty well. You should be able to answer questions like: when they called, how many times they called," and more. He says be prepared to argue the law. He says the cash is nice, but he hopes enough people suing will stop the calls. I don't think its going to be THAT easy BUT I like this mans style! Who's down to play dirty with these folks and get some $$$?? Here's more from Dan...

Thank you Fox 11 for help with this story 🙂
