Class Action Lawsuit Settlement: Western Union Illegal Text Messages

Class Action Lawsuit Settlement: Western Union TCPA

The money transfer service, Western Union, has agreed to pay an amount of $8.5 million for settling down as a class action lawsuit against them. According to the Western Union TCPA settlement, the company has violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

If You received a Text Message from The Western Union Company, You can file a claim for compensation from a Class Action Settlement.

Jason Douglas, the lead plaintiff, has filed this lawsuit settlement after claiming to receive an unsolicited message that he thinks has been sent to the thousands of wireless telephone numbers.

According to the lead, the spam message that was received by him in 2014 included-

texts; Consent not
required to purchase.

Douglas says that no prior consent was taken by him before sending this message, which is required under TCPA. The TCPA is an act that restricts and limits the companies from making the calls or sending the texts or unsolicited messages to the consumers.

Western Union denies every allegation on them, but at the same time, they have also agreed to the terms of TCPA class action settlement in order to avoid the cost of further litigations.
