Our attorneys are investigating allegations that Target robocalls consumers using an automatic telephone dialing system. Target, the Minnesota-based retailer, has been targeted with several lawsuits with allegations of spam calling or spam texting consumers. These Target robocall lawsuits could result in substantial penalties.
Under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), sending unwanted calls or texts using an automatic dialing system is prohibited, and telephone subscribers can recover a penalty of up to $1,500 per call or text.
Target Corp. Faces Several TCPA Robocall Lawsuits
One TCPA lawsuit against Target Corporation alleged that starting in 2011, the plaintiff began receiving 2-5 robocalls to her cell phone from Target per day. They were apparently trying to collect on a balance she owed on her Target-issued credit card. Nevertheless, she had not given them her cell phone number nor permission to call it. She asked them to stop calling her, according to the complaint, but they didn’t listen.
Another Target robocall lawsuit alleged that the company spammed a consumer’s phone with numerous unwanted calls from the following phone numbers:
- (612) 852-0021
- (602) 385-2140
- (888) 608-7627
- (612) 852-0022
- (612) 852-0022
- (952) 852-0003
