Am-Med Diabetic Supplies, American Home Craft Inc., and State Farm Bank are just a few of the companies that may be liable for a do not call lawsuit. You can also file a lawsuit against any business that has violated your rights by sending you unsolicited phone calls. These companies are responsible for deceiving you into signing up for their programs or providing you with unnecessary services. This article will give you some tips and tricks for filing a do not call lawsuit against them.
Am-Med Diabetic Supplies
If you or a loved one has diabetes, you should not call Am-Med Diabetic Supplies or the company that owns it. Defendants continue to call former customers of the companies they acquired. These potential customers may be AmMed customers. This is a violation of federal and state laws. To avoid the hassle of calling a company to complain about a faulty product, you should not answer the phone.
Moreover, it is important to know that Liberty Healthcare contacted AmMed patients in 2008. These contacts told patients that the company was going out of business and was bankrupt. But this was not true. The company had not gone out of business and had been purchased by Liberty. Liberty representatives were simply misinformed. They were not responsible for the company’s misbehavior. Liberty Healthcare was unable to determine whether the company had abused or misrepresented its customers.
American Home Craft Inc
The Do Not Call laws took effect in October 2003 and the California Attorney General’s Office filed the first Do Not Call lawsuit against American Home Craft, Inc. in early November. According to the lawsuit, American Home Craft continued to make telemarketing calls to consumers, even after they requested an internal “do not call” list. Fortunately, the Do Not Call law is now the law of the land, and California homeowners can stop unwanted calls from these companies by following a few simple steps.
In this Do Not Call bust, the California attorney general has won a $45,000 judgment against a home improvement company that violated the law by making illegal phone calls to 120 California residents who had registered on the National Do Not Call Registry. The company argued that it made the calls because it had a technology glitch. However, the company agreed to settle the lawsuit by agreeing to pay $30000 in civil penalties and restitution. Individual consumers who filed a formal complaint against American Home Craft are entitled to receive an additional $200 in damages.
California’s Attorney General recently announced the settlement of a multistate lawsuit against Dish Network. The company had violated federal and state consumer protection laws by making millions of illegal phone calls to promote its products and services. The company was found guilty of violating the federal Do Not Call registry and violating telemarketing laws in 2009. The settlement requires Dish to comply with various telemarketing laws and regulations, or face legal action.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled in February 2017 that a $61 million class-action judgment against Dish Network was upheld because the company failed to demonstrate it had the right to call its customers. The lead plaintiff had registered his phone number with the national Do Not Call Registry in 2003. However, an unidentified Dish Network vendor made several calls to him despite his request. This makes it important for businesses to closely monitor their third-party vendors for federal compliance.
State Farm Bank
State Farm has responded to a discrimination lawsuit by firing an employee. The lawsuit claims that the company fired employees who were African-American and Muslim because of their race. A former employee of the company alleged that she was wrongfully denied a consumer loan application because of her race. State Farm did not call the lawsuit but did respond to an anonymous letter sent through the U.S. Postal Service. In it, the letter described Black and minority employees as “uneducated” and at the bottom of the barrel.
The complaint alleges that State Farm engaged in a deceptive scheme by ordering a third-party data provider to apply a false adjustment to internet prices of used cars. This adjustment does not reflect market realities, is not based on normal negotiations, and is meant to make total loss payments seem less than they are. Ultimately, this scheme cost the company millions of dollars and is illegal. State Farm is appealing the decision, and the lawsuit is still on track to be filed.
