Man Sues spends full year suing telemarketers AND WON 75K

A Guy Made $75,000 in a Year Just by Suing Telemarketers

A guy in Austin, TX named Dan Graham was sick of getting so many calls from telemarketers. So last year, he started SUING them for breaking the law. And in 11 months, he's made $75,000 in settlements.

If you're looking for a side gig, I can't think of a more satisfying way to make money than this. And we're talking pretty big money here!

He works as a financial consultant, and says ignoring random calls isn't an option for him. He has to answer them even though they're spam calls half the time.

He tried adding his number to the Do Not Call list, and filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau. But that didn't do any good.

So last April, he sued one of the companies that kept calling him, and WON! 

Or technically, they settled. They had to, because he showed they were violating something called the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

So after that, he kept doing it. And in the last 11 months, he's filed 50 more lawsuits, and made 75 GRAND in settlements.

He says some of the companies didn't even know it was happening. A lot of them use outside contractors for marketing. And once they found out, they stopped it!

“We’ve had some that simply say ‘hey, we don’t really care. We’re gonna keep doing what we want.’ No apology, nothing. We’ve also had another company, this is probably my favorite, we took them to court and they called, their legal counsel called us and said, ‘first of all, thank you. We realize you’re suing us, but we had no idea our marketing affiliates were doing this kind of behavior. We’ve fired them on the spot, we’ve ended the relationship.'”
