Unsolicited Cell Phone Calls

Cell Phone in Circle with Strikethrough

Florida Advertising and Marketing Corp. (FAM), doing business as BookHotelStays, markets timeshares. Unfortunately, the complaint for this class action claims it chooses to do so at least in part by telemarketing with prerecorded messages, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Compass Bank is settling a class action alleging that the bank made automated calls to consumer cell phones in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The complaint alleged that the bank used automated dialing systems to make collection calls to the cell phones of persons who did not have a Compass Bank account and did not give the bank permission to call them. 

Letters "TCPA" and Concentric Circle Design

Telemarketers are an annoyance to most consumers, but even the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) doesn’t seem to stop them. The complaint for this class action alleges that Entrevoice Virtual Solutions, Inc. used telemarketing to advertise its merchant and payment processing services. 

eFinancial Logo

The complaint for this class action makes what is unfortunately a very common allegation: that a company has telemarketed to consumer cell phones in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The company in this case is eFinancial, LLC, seeking to promotes its products.

Comenity Logo

Unwanted calls from companies are annoying, but they’re even more annoying when they’re intended for a different person. The complaint for this class action claims that Comenity Bank repeatedly placed wrong-number calls to consumer cell phones, looking for different parties than the one called.

Massey Yardley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat

The Yardley Car Company does business as Massey Yardley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. It also apparently does business by violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)—or at least that’s what the complaint for this class action alleges. 

Robot on Telephone

All three of the plaintiffs in this class action had put their cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. They should therefore have been doubly protected from telemarketing, through the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) which has prohibitions on calls to both cell phones and numbers on the registry. Still, the complaint for this class action claims that Magazines.com, LLC called them as many as one hundred times, in an attempt to get them to buy magazines.

Letters "TCPA" and Concentric Circle Design

For some reason, a number of companies have decided that “ringless” voicemails are not covered by the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), although there doesn’t seem to be an appreciable difference between those and other methods of contact. The complaint for this class action alleges that FL Cash Home Buyers, LLC did violate the TCPA when it sent these voicemails to consumers. 

DMB Financial Logo

The complaint for this class action claims that DMB Financial, LLC and Commonwealth Servicing Group, LLC have violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)—and it further alleges that these two companies are actually the same entity. The TCPA violations involve telemarketing to consumer cell phones and to phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry.

Robot Making Phone Call

The complaint for this class action claims that CNU Online Holdings, LLC has violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). It alleges that CNU, doing business under the name CashNetUSA, makes prerecorded telemarketing calls to consumer cell phones.
