A California man has filed a proposed class action lawsuit against Chopard USA LTD over allegations regarding the illegal recording of consumers’ cellular phone calls without their prior consent. The plaintiff claims he called Chopard from his wireless phone and spoke with a customer service representative. During their conversation, he was allegedly never informed that his call would be recorded. He discovered later that the defendant records all incoming calls and fails to disclose this information to the callers, according to the suit. The plaintiff argues that his privacy was unlawfully invaded because he “expected that his telephone call would be private.”
