Apex Healthcare Advisors, Inc. is on the receiving end of a proposed class action lawsuit alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). According to the complaint, the insurance broker places telemarketing robocalls to consumers’ phones without prior express consent, supposedly forcing consumers “to bear the costs of receiving these unsolicited prerecorded calls.”
The plaintiff claims the defendant called him on November 30, 2017 and greeted him with a prerecorded message in an attempt to interest him in one of its clients’ insurance policies. The man says he ended the call without purchasing insurance and then received two additional calls from Apex “within minutes of the initial call.”
The lawsuit argues that the defendant never obtained proposed class members' consent before contacting them and even called phone numbers listed in the National Do Not Call Registry.
