Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware of the following Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) class action lawsuit filings:
American Residential Services LLC

Class action lawsuit filed on March 2, 2020 in United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia against American Residential Services LLC “to stop Defendant from violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making unsolicited, pre-recorded calls to consumers, including consumers on the National Do Not Call Registry.”

According to the complaint, American Residential Services “runs a network of company-owned locations throughout the U.S. that provide heating, air conditioning, plumbing and sewer drain services to residential consumers and businesses.[]” American Residential Services, allegedly, “places pre-recorded calls in which it identifies itself as [American Residential Services] and/or Rescue Rooter.”  The complaint alleges that the pre-recorded sales calls are made to consumers for marketing purposes and without prior express written consent.  The Plaintiff, allegedly, received calls on her cellular telephone from American Residential Services, (770) 908-8488.

Direct Recovery Services LLC

Class action lawsuit filed on March 3, 2020 in United States District Court, Central District of California, against Direct Recovery Services LLC and other defendants, as of yet unknown, for, allegedly, “negligently contacting Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act . . . thereby invading Plaintiff’s privacy.”

According to the class action complaint, Direct Recovery Services “began to use Plaintiff’s cellular telephone for the purpose of sending Plaintiff spam text messages regarding debt collections using . . . number 381-06.”

An example from the complaint of a text message the Plaintiff received from Direct Recovery Services is as follows:

Important Private Matter. MELISSA MEYER, call 678-261-8872 or http://www.directrecoveryservices.com/view-online.html, Use: 112723993 Respond stop to unsubscribe

The Plaintiff, allegedly, told the Defendant to stop sending text messages, but the Plaintiff continued to receive “unwanted text messages.”
