Remember the days when you added yourself to the national 'Do Not Call' list but still received spam or robo calls? There's a new app that will sue those companies on your behalf for up to $3,000. Here's how it works with Robo Revenge. When you sign up, Robo Revenge gives you a 'burner' credit card, which allows them to track which company tried to charge the fake card. Once that happens, Robo Revenge will go after them for $3,000. Here's the catch, this only works with calls within the United States. There is no law protecting us from companies outside the states.
Why use the service? You can sue the unwanted caller for up to $3,000 under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a law that protects consumers who have indicated that they don’t want to be bothered endlessly and are on the Do Not Call Registry. That does seem time consuming. Robo Revenge automatically generates demand letters and court documents to help users with their claim.
