Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on May 29, 2018, a class action complaint was filed against Transworld Systems, Inc. for “. . . negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully placed calls using an artificial and/or prerecorded voice to Plaintiff’s cellular phone in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. (the “TCPA”).”
According to the class action complaint, Transworld, “one of the country’s largest debt collectors,” which “touts that it services a portfolio of more than $25 billion and that 2.3 million accounts are placed with it annually,” allegedly, “operates an aggressive contact schedule which bombards unsuspecting consumers, with whom it has no relationship, with calls using a prerecorded and/or artificial voice.” Further, the complaint alleges that Transworld, was not attempting to collect a debt from the Plaintiff, but rather “bombarded his cellular telephone with prerecorded and artificial voice calls made without his consent and over his explicit objection.” Allegedly, Transworld repeatedly called Plaintiff’s cell phone from (779) 970-2672, (779) 970-2620, and (779) 970-2724 utilizing a prerecorded and/or artificial voice regarding a woman unknown to the Plaintiff. In April 2018, the Plaintiff contacted Transworld, furnished his cell phone number, and requested Transworld to stop calling his cell phone. Transworld, according to the complaint, told the Plaintiff that it could not locate the phone calls made to the Plaintiff’s and, subsequently, continued to place calls to the Plaintiff’s cell phone.
The TCPA class action seeks, among other relief, statutory damages and was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California (2:18-cv-04698).
