Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on June 8, 2018, a class action lawsuit was filed against Aaron’s Inc., a business which “leases furniture, appliances, and electronic devices to its often credit-challenged customers,” for, allegedly, “. . . contacting individuals believed to be its debtors through the use of prerecorded messages and automated calls in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act . . . .”
According to the complaint, Aaron’s, despite a past citation issued by the FCC in 2009 against the company for TCPA violations, “. . . violated the TCPA by making calls to Plaintiff and Class Members using an ‘automatic telephone dialing system’ and an ‘artificial or prerecorded voice’ . . . without Plaintiff’s and Class Members’ prior express consent within the meaning of the TCPA.”
The class action complaint alleges that the Plaintiff’s cell phone received numerous autodialed and pre-recorded calls from Aaron’s Inc. The Plaintiff received calls from telephone numbers (844) 677-9518, (844) 677-9515, and (770) 802-2195. Despite his requests for the calls to stop, the Plaintiff continued to receive unwanted and unsolicited calls on his cell phone from Aaron’s.
The class action, filed in United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia (1:18-cv-02821-ODE), seeks injunctive relief and statutory damages.
