A class-action lawsuit against the Resort Marketing Group is being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission. In 2009, Philip Charvat filed a complaint alleging that the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending millions of pre-recorded “robocalls” to several consumers. The TCPA prohibits telemarketers from making unsolicited calls and allows consumers to opt out of these messages at any time.
The plaintiff, Philip Charvat, filed a class-action lawsuit against the companies, alleging that they marketed vacation properties, timeshares, and other services without the consumer’s consent.
The complaint alleged that the companies violated the TCPA by contacting consumers without their express consent. In response, a settlement agreement has been reached with the resort marketing group and is expected to reach a settlement of at least $7 million to $12.5 million for consumers who received recorded telemarketing calls from these companies.
The plaintiffs sued the companies that distribute these “robocalls” and a third party that sold their contact information to them. The case was settled in 2012 after the parties agreed to pay victims $3.25 per call and a maximum refund of $900 per line. The lawsuit seeks a refund of up to $600. The settlement was a win for consumers. The companies will have to cease using the practice in the future.
The Resort Marketing Group has settled with the Cruise Industry Association of America and several other cruise lines.
The company has agreed to reimburse consumers who received telemarketing calls. The settlement requires these companies to provide full refunds within six months, but the cap is $900 per phone line. In addition to the full refund, the plaintiffs will be reimbursed a total of $2.5 million. However, the company will be required to pay attorneys’ fees and court costs.
In August 2012, Resort Marketing Group and other cruise lines settled a class-action lawsuit claiming that they violated the TCPA by sending millions of robocalls to customers. The lawsuit was filed against the cruise lines for violating the TCPA because the calls were recorded without the consumer’s permission. The settlement includes a refund of $300 per call and a cap of $900 per phone line. This settlement has helped consumers who received the calls without consent.
The lawsuit claims that the Defendants violated the TCPA by soliciting customers for surveys.
These surveys were for the sale of vacation properties and timeshares. The majority of surveys came from Political Surveys of America. Individuals who accepted the free cruise were then transferred to a representative of the Caribbean Cruise Line. The TCPA has allowed for a class action settlement of the claims. However, if you were not notified of the settlement, the company may have already violated the TCPA.
The plaintiffs filed a class-action lawsuit against the Resort Marketing Group in July 2013 alleging that the cruise lines violated the TCPA by making calls to consumers who did not consent. In response, the Defendants settled for $900 for every call, a settlement that is fair to consumers. If you have received a recorded telemarketing call that a cruise line made, you may be entitled to a refund of up to $300 per call.
The Resort Marketing Group settled a class-action lawsuit alleging that the cruise lines violated the TCPA.
In addition to the TCPA, the company violated the TCPA by directing recorded telemarketing calls to consumers without their consent. The resulting settlement in the class-action lawsuit against the cruise companies will allow consumers to receive up to $900 in refunds. While it may not be enough to cover all of the costs, this settlement is a victory for the cruise industry.
As a result of the lawsuit, the cruise lines have agreed to pay up to $300 for each recorded telemarketing call. In addition, the plaintiffs also won a $900 settlement in another case against the Resort Marketing Group. The TCPA limits the amount of money a company can pay for a telemarketing call to a customer. This means that you can get a refund of up to $900. These funds should cover all of the costs associated with your upcoming trip, and help you get the compensation that you deserve.
