AllianceOne Receivables Settles Pre-Recorded Phone Calls Class Action

By on February 21, 2013

Recently, a federal court granted preliminary approval of a class action settlement between AllianceOne Receivables Management, Inc., and people who claimed to have received pre-recorded phone calls from the company, in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

The $9 million settlement ends a case titled Adams, et al., v. AllianceOne Receivables Management, Inc., Southern District of California.  Under the terms of the settlement, individual class members may receive up to $40 if they received a pre-recorded message from AllianceOne.

Generally, companies that violate the TCPA are viable to consumer for $500 for each violation of the Act, and $1,500 for each knowing or willful violation.
