ADT Security Robocall Class Action Settlement

ADT Security

UPDATE: Payments for the ADT Security robocall class action settlement were mailed September 13, 2013. Class Members who submitted valid claims can expect to see their check within 10 business days. Learn more here.

 

ADT Security Services Inc. has agreed to a $15 million class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it made illegal telemarketing calls to consumers. If you received a telemarketing call from ADT, you may be eligible to receive between $50 and $100 if the class action settlement is approved.

The ADT robocall settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit (Vishva Desai v. ADT Security Services Inc.) that alleges certain ADT authorized dealers or lead generators, seeking to sell ADT’s products and services, made numerous calls that violated the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). This includes calling consumers using an automated dialing machine (“robocalling”) and delivering a pre-recorded message.


ADT denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to establish a $15 million class action lawsuit settlement fund to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the ADT class action settlement include all persons or entities who received telemarketing phone calls that either delivered a pre-recorded message or were made using automated dialing equipment, and which were made under the guise of selling ADT products or services.

If the Court approves the ADT robocall settlement, every Class Member who submits a timely and valid Claim Form will be entitled to a payment based on the number of valid claims received. It’s estimated that the typical payout on the settlement will be between $50 and $100, but this amount could be higher or lower based on the actual number of valid claims submitted. Each household is entitled to make only one claim, regardless of the number of telephone calls received, and the maximum payout will not exceed $500.

The only way to receive a cash award from the ADT class action lawsuit settlement is to submit a Claim Form online or postmarked no later than June 10, 2013.

A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for June 21, 2013. [UPDATE: A federal judge granted final approval to the settlement at the Final Fairness Hearing. Payments were mailed to eligible Class Members on September 13, 2013.]

Making robocalls or delivering pre-recorded messages is against the law. If you received a phone call that you believe violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), you may be entitled to compensation.

    Thanks … finally maybe these robo caller agencies will get the idea that we do not want their calls and we will be monetarily compensated when they violate the law.
