Chase Bank Class Action Settlement – NC TCPA Law Firm
JP Morgan Chase has agreed to pay to resolve claims arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). The Chase Bank Class Action Settlement calls for Chase to pay $3.75 million to potential class members. A Florida class action complaint alleged JP Morgan Chase Bank robo-dialed cellular telephone numbers that were previously reassigned from former customers to new bank users who had not agreed to receive such automated telephone calls.
Most of the potential class members of the Chase Bank Class Action Settlement will receive significantly less than they would if they were willing to pursue a lawsuit on our own. Maginnis Law represents class action class members who have opted out of the class-action settlement. We recently represented an individual who opted out of a class-action TCPA settlement where he was to receive less than $100. We resolved his case for $150,000.00.
The Chase Bank Class Action Settlement originated when a plaintiff filed a suit alleging that Chase violated the provisions of the TCPA by placing calls using an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS”) to call Chase customers without prior express consent. These unauthorized telephone calls are contrary to the law.
The TCPA regulates telemarketing calls, auto-dialed calls, prerecorded calls, text messages and unsolicited faxes. Under the TCPA, companies are prohibited from using an ATDS system without prior express consent before making each call. Prior express consent is oftentimes included in small print when submitting online forms through websites, consumer contracts, or even verbal authorizations over the telephone.
If you are receiving calls from Chase or any other company without permission, there is legal recourse to protect you from automated harassment. If you are targeted by a company without consent, always try to get as much information about the names of the company and specific representative contacting you and save all calls, texts, written correspondence, and faxes sent to you. This can be very important in proving your claims. The TCPA allows individuals to be awarded money when they are called by companies without consent. The TCPA allows recipients of unwanted telephone calls to be awarded a minimum of $500.00 and a maximum of $1,500.00 per telephone call.
