So an employee from a car dealership took my number from the companies records and is now texting me and tries to talk to me, trying to invite me out to parties, etc..
can I sue him or his company for giving out my number without my authorization?
I feel as my information was used very inappropriately and it bothers me very much that these employees can get away with this
Call the owner of the car dealership and complain and threaten to sue the dealership for the employee's harassment. That should work. It is not good business for a company employee to harass a customer like this. If it doesn't stop, talk to your local prosecutor about charging the employee with harassment.
