Lastly, the TCPA prohibits any solicitation calls to those consumers who have registered their numbers on the Do-not-call registry.
  • If you feel that you may know of a TCPA violation, you should save the numbers of anyone who calls you for any of the above described purposes. You should also save any voicemails that may be left by these numbers, even if there is no one speaking in them.
