Www.RobocallSettlement.com – ADT Security Robocall Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
If you got telemarketing calls from ADT Security Services from between January 1, 2007 to January 30, 2013, then you are eligible to get compensation. These calls should have been pre-recorded messages. The reason for the calls was to sell you some kind of service or some kind of product. This is not legal because it violates the TCPA or the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Also if you are entitled to take part, you should have received a notice in the mail. If you did not get a notice for the ADT Security Robocall Class Action Lawsuit Settlement, then you can download the notice at the www.RobocallSettlement.com site.
For you to be able to get the compensation, you must file your claim form. You can submit your claim form online at the www.RobocallSettlement.com site. You can also email your claim form. This is the first time that I have seen that you can email a claim form. Usually you can either submit them online or send them via regular mail. So this is definitely unusual if you ask me. The deadline for you to either submit this online or send via email is June 10, 2013.
The Final Approval Hearing where you can voice your objections if you wanted to will be held on June 21, 2013. This is when the the Court will approve the settlement and this is also when people can appeal. So depending on the number of appeals, the payment you get may take a while getting to you. This is because if there are appeals, all appeals must be settled satisfactorily first. If you are eligible to get compensation in the ADT Security Robocall Class Action Lawsuit Settlement and you filed a valid claim form before the deadline mentioned, then you will get anywhere from $50 to $100. That is a lot of money so if I were you, make sure you submit your claim form on time.
If for some reason you do not want the $50 or $100 that you can get from this case and want to actually sue the company yourself, then you can easily do that by excluding your self. When you do this you will no longer be a class member in this case. You will retain all your rights and you will be able to sue if you want. So you must ask for this before May 13, 2013. If you do not ask, then you will remain a class member.
The total amount of the ADT Security Robocall Class Action Lawsuit Settlement is $15 million. That is a lot of money. So you may be wondering why you are getting so little. In all cases such as this, the lawyers make the most money. The class counsel are the attorneys that represent you in this case. They will bet up to 33.33% of the fund. This will cover all their expenses. Also if you are a Class Representative, you will get a lot of money. In fact you may get up to $30,000. This is the first time I have seen the class representatives get this much money. Usually it is between $5,000 to $10,000.
I have received many robocalls for many years and I can’t even remember from which company I have received them. I usually get annoyed but never know what to do about them. The calls that I hate to get most are the telemarketer calls. Somehow they have the knack of calling at dinner time. With robocalls that are pre-recorded messages, you can easily hang up even though you have no way of telling the caller to stop calling you. With people who make these telemarketer calls, it becomes more annoying. However at least you get the chance to tell them not to call again. So that always makes me feel good when I tell them never to call again. And when they do call me back, I tell them that I had asked them to stop calling and if they continued to make these calls then I would sue them. Sometimes that is the only way out.
So if you did receive these robocalls from ADT within the time period mentioned, you should submit a claim form online. If you did not get the notice in the mail and are not sure if you are included, then just call the settlement administrator or even the class counsel to find out.
