Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on February 11, 2020, a class action complaint was filed in United States District Court for the Central District of California against Uber Technologies Inc. for “negligently and knowingly contacting [the] Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”).  

According to the complaint, “[o]n or about October of 20128, [Uber Technologies Inc.] began using Plaintiff’s cellular telephone for the purpose of sending Plaintiff spam alerts via text message.” Allegedly, “[t]he text messages were sent from phone number (858) 348-5632,” and, according to the complaint, “[w]hen dialing back the number above, one is greeted with an automated voice that states ‘the number you’ve reached does not accept phone calls at this time’. The call then is automatically disconnected.”  The Plaintiff, allegedly, “[p]rior to October 2018, . . . had never given [Uber Technologies] her prior express consent to send her messages of this nature.”
