Citibank Robocall Lawsuits
Meyer Wilson is currently investigating claims that Citibank made numerous
debt collection robocalls to consumers in violation of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act (TCPA).
are calls that use pre-recorded messages or artificial voices. Complaints
have also surfaced regarding robo text messages.
What is the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)?
The TCPA became law in 1991, putting restrictions on automated calls and
prerecorded messages (for both debt collection and telemarketing purposes).
The TCPA also now regulates automated text messaging. In most circumstances,
an entity must have a person’s prior express consent in order to
make automated or prerecorded calls or text messages.
Meyer Wilson represents people who have received unsolicited calls or texts
and fights for their rights under the TCPA. The TCPA provides for damages
of $500 up to $1,500 per violation.

This is not the first time Citibank has violated the TCPA. In 2008 the
FCC issued a citation against the bank and warned that further abuse of
these laws could warrant heavy fines. If you received automated calls
from Citibank, you may have a claim.
