HomeAdvisor – Alleged Unsolicited Telemarketing Calls to Cell Phones

Posted By

Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on February 26, 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed against HomeAdvisor, Inc., “. . . an online marketplace . . . where consumers seeking home repairs are paired with contractors in their geographic area,” in United States District Court for the District of Colorado “. . . to stop its [alleged] practice of making unsolicited telemarketing calls to the cellular telephones of consumers nationwide and to obtain redress for all persons injured by its conduct. . . .”  

According to the complaint, HomeAdvisor, ” . . . in an attempt to promote its businesses and to expand its network and recruit new customers, . . . conducted . . . a telemarketing campaign that features the repeated making of unsolicited calls to consumers’ cellular telephones using an automatic telephone dialing system . . . in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47U.S.C. § 227. . . .” Further, the complaint alleges that “[i]n Defendant’s attempt to market its services, it placed . . . autodialed phone calls to consumers that never provided consent to be called and to consumers with whom it has no prior relationship.”

The class action complaint against HomeAdvisor alleges that the Plaintiff, “[b]eginning in or around December 2018,” received unsolicited calls, despite never having provided prior express consent to receive calls from HomeAdvisor or the company’s agents.  Allegedly, “[d]uring at least one of the calls, [the] Plaintiff . . . asked not to be called anymore[,] but continued to receive calls from HomeAdvisor.”
