Postmates Inc. is on the receiving end of a proposed class action filed by a Georgia woman who claims she received over a dozen unauthorized, automated telemarketing calls from the food delivery company.
According to the case, the calls began with a pre-recorded message asking if the plaintiff would be interested in driving for Postmates—a prospect the woman says she had never expressed interest in prior to the calls. The plaintiff says she had no previous relationship with Postmates nor provided her consent to receive the telemarketing calls, which the case emphasizes is required by the Telephone Consumer Protection Act for non-emergency, autodialed communications.
The plaintiff alleges that she received at least 17 calls from Postmates in January and February 2020, sometimes several times per day, despite informing the company on multiple occasions that she was not interested in receiving the calls. The defendant, according to the case, continued to call the plaintiff even after informing her that her number had been listed on its internal do-not-call list and after the woman’s attorney sent Postmates a letter regarding the calls.
The lawsuit seeks to compensate anyone who received a call to their cell phone that used an artificial or pre-recorded voice to promote Postmates’ products or services within the last four years and up until the case goes to trial.
