Fora Financial Unwanted Robocalls Settlement Notes
- Dolemba, et al. v. Fora Financial LLC et al.
- Case No. 16 C 10651
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division
Plaintiff Scott Dolemba filed this class action lawsuit against Fora Financial, claiming the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by placing autodialed telemarketing calls to consumers cell phones without their consent.
Dolemba alleges he received numerous calls and emails, sometimes twice or more a day, from Fora Financial offering its services. According to Dolemba, the calls were paced using a predictive dialer. Predictive dialers place calls without human intervention until a connection is made. The machine “predicts” when a human is likely to be available to take the call if answered. When Dolemba answered the calls, there was a pause. This is a common feature of a predictive dialer.
However, Dolemba says he never authorized automated placement of calls to his cell phone or provided his number to Fora Financial. This, the class action lawsuit states, is a willful and knowing violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA.
Fora Financial denies violating the TCPA but opted to settle the claims to avoid the expense and uncertainty of further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Fora Financial Unwanted Robocalls Settlement website.
