Sprint Class Action Lawsuit
A Sprint consumer complaint class action has recently been filed against the company over allegations it misled consumers through a recent promotional campaign called “cut-your-mobile-phone-free-of-cost-in-just-minutes-on-the-spot-for-this-special-deal-you-received. Other allegations include that the company failed to deliver as promised.
The plaintiff’s attorney, James S. Burda is a former United States Federal prosecutor who is now an attorney at law firm Burda. The lawsuit contends that this promotion was designed to deceive consumers and was actually a deceptive marketing ploy designed to increase sales and profits. Burda, who has been practicing law for many years, is also a well-known expert on corporate fraud and consumer rights litigation.
In fact, the attorneys have been featured in television commercials on how they successfully litigate cases like this. It is quite unfortunate that this is the case with this lawsuit against Sprint. If the allegations are true and the charges are upheld in court, it could mean that Sprint would be the next company that finds itself in the spotlight for consumer complaints. There is no question that consumers are becoming increasingly sensitive to the way they are treated by companies they purchase products from.
Sprint may not be the only company that is under investigation. Other advertising agencies are also being investigated. For example, Pepsi, PepsiCo and McDonald’s are being investigated over the way they handle their promotions. Consumers are tired of companies who use deception and other unethical tactics to push their products.
The legal process has become so complex because of the consumer complaint class action lawsuit. This is because in general, any company that provides services or products to the public is required to abide by the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. That act, or FDCPA, is meant to protect consumers from abusive collection practices by collection companies.
According to the FCA, collection companies cannot contact consumers with telephone calls before the FDCPA was passed. They cannot contact consumers by fax or e-mail or use other methods of communication without first informing them. In addition, they cannot even try to contact their clients through the mail, unless they have permission from them to do so.
It has become easier than ever before for consumers to seek relief from collection practices by collection companies. Because of this, attorneys who specialize in consumer rights are getting more inquiries about the FDCPA.
To understand this lawsuit, consumers should read the complaint and then discuss the issues raised by the attorney. This will help them to understand the details of the lawsuit and determine if the complaint is appropriate.
According to the complaint, Sprint collects monthly payments from subscribers. Subscribers agree to pay for the phone number they use with a bill from Sprint. They receive a bill from Sprint every month which shows the amount owed for the month.
Subscribers can make calls to their cell phones from Sprint. These calls are billed to them as normal. After receiving a call, they are asked whether they want to buy a text or a talk time card from Sprint. They agree to pay the amount shown on their bill and get a code printed out for that purpose.
However, they are not told that Sprint sells cell phone numbers to third parties. and the credit reporting bureaus do not verify those numbers when they are sold to third parties.
When a subscriber wishes to get a new phone number, he or she pays the amount shown on their bill. Once again, the billing process begins. The next billing cycle, the subscriber receives another bill, which shows the new number. and the subscriber must sign a contract agreement with the third party to get a new phone.
However, the subscriber does not sign the contract. Instead, he or she goes on the Internet and searches for ways to cancel the contract. The first party informs the subscriber that they are willing to cancel the contract. Subsequently, the subscriber learns that the second party is willing to give him or her the number that is listed on their bill.
