Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on April 27, 2018, a class action complaint seeking damages and injunctive relief was filed against Liberty Student Loan Forgiveness, a company which “offers loan consolidation services and repayment programs,” for the alleged “illegal actions of Liberty Student Loan Forgiveness . . . in negligently or willfully contacting Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act . . ..”
The Plaintiff, according to the complaint, had no preexisting relationship with Liberty Student Loan Forgiveness and never requested that the company review his student loans, provide the Plaintiff repayment programs or calculate consolidated payments. Despite neither a prior existing relationship nor the Plaintiff’s express consent to receive marketing phone calls, the Plaintiff received an “unwelcomed automated impersonal voicemail from phone number (800) 218-0839 on his cellular telephone” stating: “‘You’re prequalified for the federal student loan forgiveness program. Please call us back at (800) 549-6685 to discuss your repayment options or press one to be connected to a live representative. Press two if you would like to be removed.’”
Liberty Student Loan Forgiveness, allegedly, as part of its consumer solicitation efforts, “calls consumers advising them that ‘they prequalified for the federal student loan forgiveness program.’” Further, according to the complaint, the Defendant’s “voicemail is meant to deceive consumers into believing that they have dealings with Defendant or Defendant is currently servicing consumers’ student loans.” The class action complaint was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California (8:18-cv-00732).
