Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: The AT&T automated call settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit titled Meilleur v. AT&T Corp. that alleges AT&T failed to comply with Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Washington Automatic Dialing and Announcing Devices Act (WADAD) in its delivery of the following pre-recorded telephone message between July 30, 2008 and May 29, 2012:
“Hi this is AT&T calling with an important message regarding your recent long distance calling. This call is to alert you that someone in your household recently made one or more international calls which will appear on your next AT&T bill at a non-discounted rate. Thank you for using AT&T. Our number is 800-235-9920.”
AT&T denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members of the AT&T automated call settlement include all persons within the United States who between July 30, 2008, and May 29, 2012 received the telephone call message who had not selected AT&T as their presubscribed long distance carrier at the time of the call, plus all California residents who received the call and were on AT&T’s internal do-not-call list at the time they received the call.
Class Members who received the pre-recorded message identified above may be eligible to receive:
- a cash sum of $135 if you were NOT a resident of the State of Washington at the time you received the pre-recorded message, or
- a cash sum of $270 if you were a resident of the State of Washington at the time you received the pre-recorded message.
