A proposed class action claims Viking Client Services, LLC violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) when it placed calls to proposed class members’ cell phones using an automatic telephone dialing system.

Despite receiving a cease and desist notice, the defendant allegedly continued to call the plaintiff’s cell phone (using an autodialer) and leave messages.
