Credibility TCPA Settlement
- Class members can file by mail, phone, or online
- Administrator contact information may be needed
More evidence has recently surfaced (as if there wasn’t enough already) that supports the idea that people really do not appreciate getting unsolicited calls from an automatic dialing system. The Thomas v. Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp (DBCC) class action lawsuit has recently settled for a stunning $10.5 MILLION. DBCC maintains that they did nothing wrong (or even that the case is appropriate for treatment as a class action) but has agreed to settle and thus avoid the risk and uncertainty of a trial. Those who believe themselves to be eligible Class Members can get started with a claim by going to the Credibility TCPA Settlement page and filing an online claim form.
A Quick but Necessary Dissection of the Credibility TCPA Settlement
- Class Members are described as people who received a non-emergency phone call from DBCC to a cellular phone through the use of an automatic dialing system between April 28th, 2011 and January 31st, 2016
- To receive payment Class Members must file a claim no later than the February 6th, 2017 filing deadline (claims can be filed online, by phone, or by sending a claim form to the Credibility TCPA Settlement Claims Administrator)
- The $10,500,000 Settlement Fund will be used to pay Settlement Awards, plaintiff attorney fees, any service award to the Representative Plaintiff, expenses, costs, and settlement administration
- The total amount of each Class Member will received depends on the total number of valid claims that are file (payments are estimated to be anywhere from $60 to $120 per claim)
Class Members who don’t want anything to do with the settlement must send their exclusion notice to the Credibility TCPA Settlement Claims Administrator by January 7th, 2017. Those who do end up opting out can send the exclusion by mail or file it online.
