Unwanted Text Message? Class Action Investigation into Spam Texts and Robocalls about COVID-19 Cleaning Services

Wanta Thome PLC is investigating unsolicited text messages and robocalls by companies that offer COVID-19 cleaning services. If you don’t have a prior relationship with a cleaning service, and you receive an unwanted text message or robocall about COVID-19 cleaning services, you may be able to assert a claim under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). The statutory fine is $500 per unsolicited text, which can go up to $1,500 if the violation was willful. The consumer rights and class action attorneys at Wanta Thome PLC are committed to stopping illegal texts and robocalls. Contact us for a free consultation.
