Generally speaking, unwanted telephone calls can be a nuisance. No one wants to have dinner or your favorite television show interrupted to answer a phone call from a robo-caller soliciting a product or credit card. For most people, these calls are an inconvenience.
Debt Collection Harassment
When calls are made in an effort to collect a debt, it is no longer an inconvenience. These calls can be extremely stressful, especially if the caller threatens legal action to enforce a claim or a debt that you may or may not owe. If a caller threatens legal action or threatens to call your friends, family or neighbors in an effort to encourage you to pay a debt, then that crosses the line into harassment. Here in West Virginia, those types of calls are unlawful.
