What Does the Lawsuit Say Exactly?
The class action was filed against two companies – Safe Streets USA LLC and Always Protected Security LLC – alleging that they broke a federal law known as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
According to the suit, Safe Streets and Always Protected Security, which are authorized to sell and market ADT’s products and services, are said to have sent the automated text messages to advertise their business and increase sales – but never received consent to do so.
The lawsuit claims these messages were sent first to realtors asking for the contact information of clients who recently closed on new homes and therefore might be interested in home security services. An example of these text messages can be seen below:
It’s been alleged that Safe Streets and Always Protected Security were trying to gather new leads in the form of recent homebuyers so they could, in turn, send them unsolicited text messages advertising their services.
A similar lawsuit, which also named ADT as a defendant, said the plaintiff received unwanted text messages saying that a representative from ADT was “in the area” or going “door to door” and could offer certain promotions, such as gift cards and free equipment.
What Could I Get from a Class Action?
A successful class action lawsuit could allow consumers to recover $500 per text message. If it is found that the companies knowingly violated the TCPA, each text message could be worth $1,500.
