From the record of Professional Placement services it was clear that 19,134 phone numbers affected by their voicemails. Moreover, the voicemails sent to the class members without their consent which waste their time and data.

The statement written in direct-to-voicemail was similar to: “This is Professional Placement Services, calling with a message. This call is from a debt collector. Please call us back at 855-777-0312. Again, that number is 855-777-0312.”
Further, according to the class action lawsuit the direct-to-voicemail messages violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
