Capital One has been hit with a lawsuit in California alleging the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. According to the plaintiff, Capital One began placing calls to her cell phone via an automatic telephone dialing system sometime in August 2016 about a debt she allegedly owed. Shortly after, the case continues, the plaintiff sent a cease and desist letter to Capital One revoking any prior express consent she may have given and demanding that the calls stop. Unfortunately, the plaintiff alleges, the calls continued despite her request. The suit seeks to cover anyone who received a call from the defendant – not for emergency purposes – on their cell phones that was placed via an automatic dialing system and/or that contained an artificial or prerecorded message within the last four years.
