Class Action Lawsuit Claims Jet Lending Violated The TCPA By Sending Unwanted Messages
Jet Lending, a Texas-based mortgage lender, was charged with a class action lawsuit due to allegations that the company sent unwanted messages to its customers, violating the TCPA.
The Class Action Lawsuit
Moquita Quinan, a Texas resident, filed the class action lawsuit against Jet Lending in April 2021 at a Southern Texas federal court.
The class action lawsuit asserts that the company sends unwanted messages to its customers without obtaining their consent. The action allegedly violates the TCPA law.
The lead plaintiff argued that she did not give Jet Lending authorization to send her these messages. She added that the messages were sent to notify the lead plaintiff to refinance her mortgage.
The class action lawsuit seeks to represent a nationwide class of consumers who received unauthorized messages from Jet Lending within the past four years.
The lead plaintiff believes that thousands of class members will be certified and covered by the class action lawsuit.
The lead plaintiff claimed that she received two text messages from the company. Aside from this, she also received multiple pre-recorded voicemails.
The text messages the lead plaintiff received from Jet Lending were sent in January and September 2020. The messages contained information on how the company could help her refinance her mortgage.
The lead plaintiff also claimed that she received several pre-recorded voicemails from the company in 2020.
She asserted that she has never given consent to Jet Lending to contact her. She also claimed that the unwanted messages violated her privacy and inconvenienced her by disrupting her daily life.
In 1991, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The federal law was introduced to protect consumers against telemarketers who send unwanted messages.
Under the law, establishments should get the explicit approval of the consumer before they send them messages. The law also prohibits telemarketers from using pre-recorded messages or robocalls when contacting consumers.
The type of messages covered by the law includes communications from a cell phone, fax, phone, and text. The law also does not allow the use of autodialers.
Aside from this, the TCPA also implemented a Do Not Call Registry. Consumers have the option to put their names on the list so that telemarketers cannot contact them.
The class action lawsuit declares that the TCPA allows consumers to require violators to pay out a compensation of $500 to $1,500 for every violation they make.
