On August 6, 2018, a class action complaint was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, against Keller Williams Realty, Inc. and other defendants, as of yet unknown, alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) and related regulations for “negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully contacting Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s home and cellular telephones.”
According to the complaint, Keller Williams contacted Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s home and cellular phone numbers to try and get Plaintiff to purchase the services of Keller Williams. Keller Williams, allegedly, contacted the Plaintiff from telephone numbers (561) 537-1540, (954) 652-9258, (954) 609-0996, (305) 924-1119, and (305) 205-6978. The Plaintiff, according to the complaint, “expressly asked [Keller Williams] multiple times to be removed from [Keller Williams’] call list beginning [in] or about May 2017 and continuing through April 2018.” Further, according to the complaint:
Plaintiff did not give [Keller Williams] prior express written consent for [Keller Williams] to call Plaintiff’s home or cellular telephone for marketing or solicitation purposes. Indeed, during one phone call Plaintiff asked where [Keller Williams] had obtained his phone number, one of Defendant’s agents stated that the phone numbers were obtained from a third party company called “REDX,” a company Plaintiff had no knowledge of, nor had he done business with at any time. (Emphasis added)
Despite Plaintiff’s request for Keller Williams to stop calling, the company “continued to call Plaintiff in an attempt to solicit its services and in violation of the National Do-Not-Call provisions of the TCPA[,] thus repeatedly violating Plaintiff’s privacy.”
