Collecto, Inc. TCPA Litigation
Case No. 14-md-2513-RGS (D. Mass.)
This lawsuit alleges that Collecto, Inc., a collection agency, violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) for placing collection calls to consumers that never had an agreement with the creditor for who Collecto sought to collect the debt. The calls were placed to consumer’s cell phones by use of an auto-dialer between July 23, 2009 and June 30, 2014.
The TCPA provides protections for consumers from receiving unwanted auto-dialed calls on their cell phone. The law allows between $500 – $1500 per violating collection call.
