 Sirius XM Call Recording Class Action Settlement

By Matt O’Donnell

 

Sirius XM Radio

Sirius XM Radio has offered to pay nearly $9.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit over allegations it violated telephone privacy and recording laws by failing to provide notice to customers who spoke with service representatives that their telephone calls were being monitored or recorded. If you placed a call or received a call from Sirius Satellite Radio between 2006 and 2010, you may be able to claim up to $1,000 or even $5,000 from the proposed class action settlement.

 

Plaintiffs in the Sirius call recording class action lawsuit, titled Kambiz Batmanghelich, et al. v. Sirius XM Radio Inc. and Stream International, Inc., allege that telephone calls with Sirius XM Radio, Inc. that were handled by Sirius XM’s customer care provider Stream International, Inc. were monitored and/or recorded without providing notice that the calls may be monitored or recorded. Sirius denies the allegations but has agreed to pay nearly $9.5 million to settle the class action lawsuit.

 

You’re considered a class member of the Sirius call recording class action settlement if you were in California, Florida, Maryland, Nevada or New Hampshire and:

 

(1) placed one or more telephone calls to Sirius Satellite Radio between July 13, 2006 and November 17, 2009, spoke with a representative on behalf of Sirius Satellite Radio, and were not provided with notice that the call may be recorded or monitored; and/or

 

(2) received one or more telephone calls from Sirius Satellite Radio between July 13, 2006 and February 1, 2010, spoke with a representative on behalf of Sirius Satellite Radio, and were not provided with notice that the call may be recorded or monitored; and/or

 

(3) placed one or more telephone calls to XM Satellite Radio between January 25, 2009 and November 17, 2009, to discuss music royalty fees or cancelling your XM Satellite Radio subscription, spoke with a representative on behalf of XM Satellite Radio, and were not provided with notice that the call may be recorded or monitored.

 

The amount of money you can receive from the Sirius call recording settlement will depend on how many people file claims; however, the maximum individual settlement amount for a class member who was in California is $5,000. The maximum individual settlement amount for a class member who was in Florida, Maryland, Nevada or New Hampshire is $1,000.

 

To receive any money from the Sirius class action settlement, you must submit a claim form online at www.callrecordingclassaction.com no later than September 10, 2011. You have until June 27 to exclude yourself and August 5 to object to the proposed settlement. A Final Fairness and Approval Hearing will be held September 12, 2011.

    Weird, I received a completely different class action email from *someone* leading me to this site: [url=http://www.satelliteradiosuit.com/]http://www.satelliteradiosuit.com/[/url]

    Though that Class Action offers you basically nothing. Money would be better, considering how often I’m pestered by them to restart service to a radio that was BROKEN that I then replaced.

    I used to love Sirius’ radio service, but as a company… they have a mental problem.

    What if I called Nevada from Arizona (which I did extensively in 2007) or a Nevada person called me? I paid big bucks to have the minutes via satellite. When I had to cancel the service, they would not refund me my unused money AND when you bought minutes, they had to be used within a certain time frame… that’s not good customer service.

    I received my check on Saturday. I had forgotten about this settlement and was pleasantly surprised to see how much the check was.

    I received my check Saturday as well. Very large amount for CA – is this settlement for real?

    Just got back from the bank and a friend of mine who works there, spoke with the bank representatives and confirmed that the check is good and the funds are sufficient. Everyone is good to go who gets the check!! Enjoy!!

    Got $699.20, I was shocked to say the least, I forgot all about it. And to think I was reluctant to sign up for it since it asked for my SS #, now I know it is for tax purposes. ENJOY!!

    I received a check for the amount of $699.20 on Friday, February 17, 2012. I was wondering if this amount is based on one call or is it based on calls made and received, anybody out there knows

    Just came home today from vacation to find a check for the same, $699.20. What a nice surprise, also live in California. I don’t think it’s based on the amount of calls, I probably talked to them 2 – 4 times a year during the 4 years the suit spanned. This is the most generous settlement I’ve ever received. My guess is alot of people were leary to sign up to be part of the suit since they have to give their SS #, which made the amount greater for all of us that did.

    My brother just got his check in CA…. I hope they will respond to my request to change my address on file since I have moved and the post office will not forward my mail anymore. Anyone have any suggestions? I did leave a message for them to call me…. Hope that works.

    $699.20 — in California. The high amount is because not that many people filed for claims. The amount could have been as high as $5000 if there were 85% less claimants in California.

    Since this was more than my Sirius bills (and I was calling to complain about excessive credit card charges after I’d sold the vehicles with Sirius radio), I feel this was a true windfall settlement.

  • Anonymous February 28, 2012

    I pray to god that no one else made the mistake I did. We got our check and deposited it in to our account. Today we got a charge back! The check is no good!! Fraud!!! Bogus!!! Do not deposit or cash!!!!!
