Robocalling and misrepresenting consumer rights


Junior Member
A collection agency has been robocalling, and when I answered the calls it would end a few seconds later. I called today and asked when they got my permission for them to robocall. They said that that they do that until first contact or they are told not to. I repeated my question and she said that they hadn’t spoke to me until today so I hadn’t given permission, that it’s legal for them to until I say not to. Not only did they illegally robocall me but they also lied about my consumer rights. I personally do not have recordings of the conversations but I do have my phone records and the phone call between me and them was recorded by the collection agency. Do I have enough to prove their harassment?
