Everybody all over other forums are terrified to call the number. I was a little apprehensive after reading all of that: STAY AWAY FROM THAT NUMBER, NEVER CALL IT, EVER!!!!" stuff.
I called. Its' Caribbean Cruise lines.
I will write the letter this evening.
Thanks for the tip!
Didn't I tell you it was CCL!! Your contact you want to send the letter/ITS to is:http://www.gmlaw.com/robby-h-birnbaum-2/
JUST IN CASE it was a third party, and NOT CCL....if it were me..I'd include this snippet....to show that they are ultimately liable...
"In 2008, the FCC held that ďa creditor on whose behalf an autodialed or prerecorded message call is made to a wireless number bears the responsibility for any violation of the Commissionís rules.ĒIn re Rules and Regulations Implementing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Declaratory Ruling on Motion by ACA International for Reconsideration, 23 FCC Rcd. 559, 565, ∂ 10 (Jan. 4, 2008); Birchmeier v. Caribbean Cruise Line, Inc
., 2012 WL 7062748 (Dec. 31, 2012).16.Accordingly, the entity can be liable under the TCPA for a call made on its behalf, even if the entity did not directly place the call. Under those circumstances, the entity is deemed to have initiated the call through the person or entity."
This is the "guilt by association" that makes them liable.
To further clarify...an SMS message is considered a "call" under the TCPA.
