Information Regarding Verizon Class Action TCPA Settlement
Verizon Wireless settled a class action lawsuit for $4 million dollars for purported violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The Verizon class action lawsuit alleged that Verizon Wireless hired Collecto, a debt collector, which unlawfully used an automatic dialing system to robocall consumers. Verizon Wireless was suspected of making unwanted robocalls to individuals who were not even customers of Verizon.
There are two separate classes; one for California residents alone, and one national TCPA class. Individuals across North Carolina are expected to begin receiving correspondence alerting them to the Verizon class action settlement. If you have received a letter about TCPA violations by Verizon Wireless, contact our TCPA attorneys for a free case evaluation.
Be aware that many Verizon Wireless class members will receive much smaller awards than if they pursued their claims outside of the class settlement. The TCPA allows consumers to be awarded between $500.00 and $1,500.00 per telephone call. It is likely that individual Verizon Wireless class members will receive significantly less than they could for even 1 violation of the TCPA.
