An individual who received unsolicited communications from Select Resources Group (Select Resources), which is a debt collection agency, has filed a federal California class action lawsuit under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The complaint that initiated the lawsuit specifically states (1) that Select used a robocaller for the communications and (2) that the individual did not consent to those communications.
The alleged harm from the asserted TCPA violation extends beyond invading the individual’s privacy; he claims as well that his wireless provider billed him for the communications from Select. The requested compensation in the class action includes the statutory penalties, which can equal $1,500 per unsolicited text or call to a landline or cell phone, under the TCPA.
The TCPA is designed to protect all individuals against many types of unsolicited telephone call or text messages that are sent via a robocaller. One specific requirement for sending these communications is that the individual who receives them has expressly provided prior consent for them.
The scope of this protection extends well beyond debt-collection activity to encompass any communications for any purpose via a robo-caller. Marketing calls and texts are common examples of this prohibited activity.
