American Express Robo-dialing Settlement

samantha severyn

A suit was filed with American Express Company and its vendor, Alorica, for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) between July 3, 2009 and March 15, 2016. American Express, or Alorica on behalf of American Express, used an automatic dialing system, predictive dialer or pre-recorded voice technology to contact consumers without their express consent. This is commonly referred to as “Robo-Calling”.

American Express and their vendors are responsible for a class action payment of $8,250,000. Once the final approval is reached, depending on how many consumers file claims, each person is eligible for at least $50, and perhaps more.

The Court will hold a Final Approval Hearing on this settlement on November 30, 2016. If the Court approves the settlement, there may be appeals. Resolving appeals can take time, and all claimants will be contacted on the progress of the appeal process.

Deadline to File a Claim: 11/1/16
