Loandepot.com, LLC – Alleged Telephone Consumer Protection Act Violations
On February 27, 2018, a Telephone Consumer Protection Act class action complaint was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, against Loandepot.com, LLC. The lawsuit alleges that beginning in April 2017, Loandepot.com, “a marketer and seller of loans and related products,” placed multiple telephone calls to the Plaintiff’s cell phone soliciting Loandepot.com’s business. Defendant Loandepot.com, allegedly, attempted to contact the Plaintiff’s cellular telephone from telephone number (813) 330-3850, among others.
The calls Plaintiff received were, allegedly, not for emergency purposes; were placed to a telephone number assigned to a cellular service for which the Plaintiff incurs a charge for incoming calls; and for which Loandepot.com did not possess Plaintiff’s prior express consent to receive such calls using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone, pursuant to, respectively, 47 U.S.C. § 227(b)(1) and 47 U.S.C. § 227(b)(1)(A).
The Plaintiff, Miguel Napoles, brought the class action individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated in the United States who, within the past four years, received any solicitation/telemarketing telephone calls from Loandepot.com to a cellular telephone made through the use of any automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice without having previously consented to receiving such calls. The class action seeks statutory damages of $500 for each and every TCPA violation and triple, or treble, damages of $1,500 for each and every knowing or willful TCPA violation.
