Under federal laws, consumers have a right to be protected from harassing phone calls. However, some companies, including cruise lines, have violated federal standards by placing repeated, spam calls to consumers without permission. At Atlas Consumer Law, we are passionate about holding companies responsible for making harassing robocalls and violating the law. A recent case may result in big payoffs for several people because of one company’s illegal marketing actions.
Here’s What You Need to Know
A class action lawsuit was brought against Resort Marketing Group, Inc. The claim was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and alleged that the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). From 2009 to 2014, the company called various people without permission, advertising free cruises with the Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd., Carnival Corporations & PLC, and NCL (Norwegian Cruise Lines), Ltd. Together, these were the “cruise defendants.” The calls were made to residential telephone lines and personal cell phone numbers, prompting a class action lawsuit for harassment.
Many People May Be Able to Seek Financial Settlements
The court made the company pay a settlement to anyone who received pre-recorded phone calls between 2009 and 2014 advertising free cruises. Anyone eligible may be awarded up to $900 in compensation for the phone calls. If you received robocalls from Resort Marketing Group, Inc. between 2009 and 2014, you may be able to obtain a financial settlement. The deadline for pursuing compensation ends on November 3, 2017.
