LiveDeal, Yellowpage Class Action Settlement
By Kimberly Mirando
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit accusing LiveDeal Inc., doing business as YP.com, YP.net and Yellowpage.net, of running a scheme that unwittingly enrolled Washington State consumers into an advertising program. Class Members stand to receive $70 cash if the class action settlement is approved.
The LiveDeal settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit titled Global Education Services Inc. v. LiveDeal Inc., et al. that claims LiveDeal and Telco Billing Inc. were involved in a promotional program that involved sending unsolicited “Activation Checks” to consumers. The plaintiff alleges that the Activation Check did not adequately disclose that cashing it would result in the purchase of online advertising services, which were charged and collected via a monthly fee through the customer’s telephone bill. This allegedly violated the Consumer Protection Act of Washington, according to the lawsuit.
LiveDeal and Telco Billing deny any wrongdoing, but have agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members include any individual or entity in Washington State who negotiated an Activation Check from any of the Defendants or their predecessors during the Class Period, except for those who either already received a refund for the advertising services they paid for or chose not to cancel the services after being notified of their right to cancel.
Each Class Member who submits a valid Claim Form by the deadline of April 1, 2013 will receive $70 from the LiveDeal class action settlement.
