Following news that Time Warner Cable has been ordered to pay a Texas woman $229,500 for bombarding her with automated nuisance calls, automated call centres have been quick to include automated call compensation in their repertoire of services.
We can all now expect to receive persistent automated calls from companies offering no win, no fee compensation recovery services for people who have suffered from persistent auto-calling. However, if these calls are excessive, the companies concerned will be liable to pay compensation to their victims.
In fact one man has already instructed an auto-calling compensation firm to recover compensation for excessive auto-calling about excessive auto-calling compensation.
When we tried to contact automated call centre companies to ask for their comments about excessive auto-calling compensation calls, they kept hanging up.
Not to be dissuaded, we used an automated call centre to keep trying to contact the companies concerned, hoping to get some useful industry feedback to use in this article. We did not receive any comments, but we were called by an auto-calling compensation company who said that if we persisted with excessive auto-calling of auto-calling companies who auto-call about auto-calling compensation, we would be liable to pay auto-calling compensation to the auto-calling compensation companies concerned.
We hung up. And if they keep calling we'll have to do something about it.
