New App Helps Consumers Sue Robocallers
Feb 16, 2020 • Gizmodo
Until now, the majority of us might have simply hung up on robocallers. However, there’s now a way to get back at the companies who torment you with endless robocalls that ask you for your information or try to sell you stuff. The solution is called Robo Revenge, a service that lets you sue the unwanted caller for up to $3,000 per call.
Robo Revenge is the latest service offered by DoNotPay, a robot lawyer app that lets consumers do things like appeal parking tickets, cancel services or subscriptions or schedule appointments at government offices, among others. Joshua Browder, DoNotPay’s founder and CEO, told Motherboard that big companies have failed to protect consumers from robocalls. This means that they have to take measures for themselves.
