Vivint to Pay $6 Million to Settle Robocall Lawsuit

A nationwide class of consumers accused Vivint of sending prerecorded telemarketing calls or “robocalls” starting in September 2008. Last week, a Florida federal judge certified the class and approved the settlement.

Last week, a federal judge approved a $6 million class action settlement of a lawsuit against Vivint and affiliated marketers. Plaintiffs accused Vivint of using an autodialer to send prerecorded messages to consumers. The class representative claimed that the calls he received from Vivint were prerecorded advertisements for wireless security systems.

Although Vivint agreed to the settlement, it continues to deny wrongdoing.

The exact amount each class member receives will depend on how many people submit claims, but no class member can receive more than $500. The settlement also binds Vivint to a “no prerecorded message” restriction for two years minimum.

Since 1991, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) has protected consumers from receiving certain unsolicited automated calls, prerecorded messages, and automated text messages. If you have received this type of call or message, contact Meyer Wilson to learn your rights.
