Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on October 19, 2018, a class action lawsuit was filed against Aaron’s, Inc. for allegedly “contin[uing] to violate the TCPA, both by using a pre-recorded voice in its telemarketing calls and by soliciting consumers at telephone numbers registered on the National Do Not Call Registry.”
The class action lawsuit, filed in United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, was filed by two Plaintiffs whose cellular phone numbers were registered on the National Do Not Call Registry and who received unsolicited calls and pre-recorded voice messages from Aaron’s. Neither Plaintiff had an established relationship with Aaron’s nor consented to be called by Aaron’s, a “Georgia corporation, with its principal place of business in Atlanta, Cobb County, Georgia. The company leases furniture, appliances, and electronic devices.”
According to the class-action complaint, Aaron’s called the Plaintiffs from numbers, including: (317) 559-4690, (480) 681-5389, (737) 237-1891, and (213) 213-5227. The complaint stated that “[as] part of its regular business practices, Aaron’s routinely calls numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry and leaves pre-recorded voice messages. It has no reasonable system in place to prevent making calls to numbers listed on the National Do Not Call Registry.”
Plaintiffs seek, among other things, statutory damages and injunctive relief to prohibit future TCPA violations by Aaron’s.
