Class Action Lawsuit Against Verizon FIOS
Recently, Verizon FIOS customers have filed class action lawsuits against Verizon, claiming that the “DEceiver” program provided by Verizon poses a serious privacy problem. Verizon has responded with massive court filings in response to these lawsuits, denying all class action lawsuit and Common Law Claims. These class action lawsuit lawsuits are extremely disturbing and merit consideration. Here is some of what I consider to be the main facts so you can decide for yourself.
Verizon’s DEX service has many problems, but the primary issue revolves around security.
Verizon stores sensitive customer data on their network. This sensitive data is supposed to be protected by strict security measures and not leaked. Verizon’s own networks were compromised by hackers, allowing unauthorized access to Verizon’s database containing the customer’s personal information.
This problem was made worse by Verizon’s failure to remedy the problem and secure its network.
They knew about this problem for over two years but did not fix it. This poor security practice allowed hackers to infiltrate Verizon’s system and gain unauthorized access to the personal data stored on Verizon’s networks. Verizon would later admit to having over one billion customer records in their database, which is a serious breach of their customers’ trust. How can a company that is trusted by millions of their clients maintain such poor security practices?
Verizon’s class action lawsuit against Verizon FIOS is confusing to say the least.
It is also a bit deceptive in that they are accusing their customers of wrongdoing when the breach of security occurred on their networks. It is hard to see why Verizon would prosecute a small business using this tactic. If Verizon was guilty of selling sub-standard products, why would they prosecute thousands of homeowners, when they could put a stop to it simply by purchasing better products? Why is Verizon trying to put a lawsuit with such potentially huge legal ramifications on the line?
When a class action lawsuit is brought against a large company, it generally makes the news and is covered in the newspapers. Class action lawsuits are usually very ugly affairs. Verizon’s class action lawsuit against Verizon FIOS appears to be no different. It is clear that Verizon feels that they must bring this lawsuit in order to take back the negative public perception that they have been receiving since the discovery of the fraudulent accounts in July of 2021. If this is the case, Verizon FIOS customers should not be put off by class action lawsuits and consider them deadbeats.
The fact that Verizon FIOS customers will not receive any kind of monetary settlements from their class action lawsuit against them is most unfortunate.
These are customers who have paid an enormous price for being poor Internet consumers. They were not aware of the fact that Verizon was selling inferior products, until it was too late to do anything about it. Now that the verdict has been delivered, these individuals must endure the consequences of their bad shopping decisions. These people may have only suffered financial losses because of Verizon’s bad service, but the class-action lawsuit could have led to better results for all of the Verizon FIOS customers out there.
One thing we can be glad of is that we now have a class action lawsuit against Verizon FIOS for just such a cause.
A class action lawsuit is when several individuals come together in a legal action against one person or organization for the same cause. This means that this case will only affect one group of people who were unfortunately victims of Verizon’s shoddy service. Having said that, it will still be very beneficial to all of the Verizon FIOS customers out there. This class action lawsuit against Verizon FIOS is expected to start in May of this year, and is expected to last until summer.
It is also good to know that there are actually several class action lawsuits against Verizon FIOS, due to the negative practices of their fiber optics. Verizon has been caught stealing the ideas of other companies who were ahead of them in the industry, by stealing their bandwidth and switching their customers to fiber optics. The class action lawsuit will force Verizon to change their ways, so that they can no longer harm customers with their bad services. Being a former fiber optic customer myself, I can attest to the fact that their service sucked, and I hope that other people who were not able to make the transition to fiber optics, will stand up and take notice. There is hope for everyone in this situation, and we need to keep spreading the word as far and wide as possible!
