The Total Merchant class action lawsuit was filed originally in July 2017 claiming that a Spitfire dialer was used to make prerecorded and autodialed calls to thousands of consumers.
The personal data collected for the phone calls in the autodialer database was purchased by Quality from an unknown database. Many of the consumers who claim they were contacted with these phone calls say they never consented to any communication from the company.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act outlines what companies can and cannot do in communicating with call recipients. It also allows consumers who believe the law has been violated to take legal action if they can show that the company has use prerecorded or autodialed calls.
