The plaintiff in a proposed class action lawsuit against ADT Inc. and ADT LLC claims she’s received at least 175 unsolicited robocalls—sometimes as many as three per day—to her cell phone from the home security unit since August 2017. The lawsuit, filed in Florida, claims the calls came over a debt the plaintiff supposedly owed to ADT despite the woman never consenting in the first place to receive calls to her cell phone. Moreover, the plaintiff claims she received text messages from ADT as well that continued to come in even after she replied that she did not want to receive communications from ADT by phone.
Per the lawsuit, ADT’s alleged robocalls to the plaintiff had no emergency purpose and were placed with automatic dialing technology prohibited for use in most situations under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
“ADT’s repeated calls invaded [the plaintiff’s] privacy and intruded upon her right to seclusion,” the case reads. “The calls frustrated and upset [the plaintiff] by constantly interrupting her daily life and wasted her time by requiring [the plaintiff] to retrieve and administer messages left by [ADT’s] calls.”
