Details: Career Education Corporation has reached a $20 million class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it sent unsolicited text message ads to consumers without their consent. If you received an unwanted text from Career Education, you may be entitled to receive up to $200 from the class action settlement.

The Career Education text settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Rojas v. Career Education Corporation, that alleges the education services company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending unsolicited text message advertisements to consumers without receiving explicit consent to do so.

Career Education Corp. denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to establish a $20 million class action lawsuit settlement fund to pay out Class Members in order to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Career Education text class action settlement include anyone in the United States who, on August 27, 2008, was sent the following text messages for Career Education Corporation:

IMAGINE HAVING A JOB U LUV! CREATIVES DO SO CAN U. REPLY WITH “Y” TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ACADEMY. BY CEC. STD / OTHER CHARGES MAY APPLY. STOP 2 END

IMAGINE A JOB WHERE U CAN USE UR IMAGINATION AND GET PAID 4 IT! REPLY Y TO HEAR HOW U CAN BEGIN 2 EARN UR DEGREE TODAY! BY CEC. STD OTH CHGS APPLY. STOP 2 END

Under the class action lawsuit settlement agreement, Career Education has agreed not to send text messages to consumers without their prior express consent. It also agreed to pay Class Members up to $200 each if they submit a claim form by December 7, 2012.
 
The amount of your exact payment from the Career Education text class action settlement cannot be calculated at this time because it will depend on the total number of valid claims that are filed. You can expect to receive your class action settlement check within 60-90 days after the settlement has been finally approved and/or after any appeals have been resolved. A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for October 23, 2012.

  • Christine February 7, 2013

    Just spoke with a representative and they have no specific date for mailing of checks….

  • Amy February 22, 2013

    This is B.S The lawyers took it all i’m sure. They are late getting our checks out. We probably won’t even get one.

  • jennell February 26, 2013

    still waiting as well where are the checks

  • Ronny March 5, 2013

    I am trying to get more information against CEC, I was never notified about this settlement. How can I get more info and actually talk to someone?

  • Tom March 19, 2013

    Has anyone received a payment?

  • Amy March 19, 2013

    No payment yet. They are way overdue. I’m sure we probably all got scammed.

  • J May 3, 2013

    Has anyone heard anything?

  • Robin May 3, 2013

    I called today and spoke to a representative. He said they are in the process of claim deficiencies. Letters are being sent out. After that, the checks would be issued 4-5 weeks later.

  • Bill May 4, 2013

    I want the money :)

  • J May 18, 2013

    Has anyone got a check or a letter of deficiencies?

  • Chris May 21, 2013

  • Scoot May 21, 2013

    Got my check about a week ago for $200. If you haven’t gotten them yet hopefully you’ll get them soon!

  • Chris May 22, 2013

    Spoke with a representative today and he told me several thousands of checks were mailed out on May 9, 2013 but mine was still being processed and that a supervisor would call me back within 24-72 hrs. They are full of it. I received no letter or nothing. This is there way of not wanting to pay us our money. I want my money.

  • Angel May 22, 2013

    HEY ! SCOOT WHAT DAY DID YOU GET YOUR CHECK. IF I MIGHT ASK.

  • J May 22, 2013

    Several thousand checks were mailed out? This seems so werid on GCG behalf. I never seem them send out checks like that usually they have to send out the checks all at once or none at all. Let us know what the supervisor says…please.

  • chris May 22, 2013

    Still getting the run around about these checks, telling me a supervisor will call me back, this is BS. Will let you know what they say when someone calls me back.

  • Angel May 23, 2013

    ANY BODY KNOW WHEN MORE CHECKS ARE BEING MAIL.

  • Chris May 24, 2013

    THey didn’t say when more checks would go out, so I’m not sure what’s going on. This is so different from the other lawsuits.

  • Angel May 24, 2013

    OK, THANKS CHRIS. I AM SURE THY WILL SEND MORE CHECKS OUT SOON.

  • Angel May 29, 2013

    NO WORD YET HUH. OH WELL JUST KEEP THE FAITH IT WILL COME. LET ME KNOW WHEN IT DO. THANKS.

  • chris May 29, 2013

    Called today and was told they were still researching the claim and someone will call me back. I think they are full you know what, they keep saying they mailed out 2,704 checks. Yeah I know that did I get one, someone will call you back and I told the gentlemen that was a week ago and no one has called me back yet. I just hung up on them.

  • Angel May 30, 2013

  • Scoot June 3, 2013

    HOPE MINE COMES SOON.

  • Trice June 7, 2013

Leftover eaten by GCG and attorneys. so Forget about it. This is how GCG operates. They have blocked thousands names and addresses . They dont even send rejection letters just no answer means ZERO..GCG has so far rejected our 7 family claims with receipts only to think they hate some people.
