This is a settlement for the Nuisance caller lawsuits allege consumers are being harassed by companies lawsuit.

Santa Cruz, CA: Monitronics has agreed to pay $28 million to settle a Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) class action lawsuit alleging the company made automated telephone calls to phone numbers listed on the national Do Not Call Registry (DNCR) and to consumers who had not provided their consent.

The settlement will address claims made in a class action lawsuit brought against Monitronics in May 2011 by plaintiff Diana Mey, which has been consolidated with more than 30 similar Monitronics TCPA proposed class action lawsuits.

The complaints all allege Monitronics, a home security company, used an automated dialing system or an artificial or pre-recorded voice to make telemarketing calls to people’s cell phones without their consent, or listed on the national DNCR, in violation of the TCPA.

Eligible class members include all persons who, since May 18, 2007, received a telemarketing call from an authorized Monitronics dealer, or a Monitronics dealer’s lead generator or sub-dealer, on a residential or cell phone using an automated telephone dialing system or pre-recorded voice, or two or more calls within a 12-month period to a residential number listed on the national DNCR.

A final fairness hearing is scheduled for March 2018.

The case is In re: Monitronics International Inc. Telephone Consumer Protection Act Litigation, Case No. 1:13-md-02493, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.

I also got a check for 3.95 The lawyers get a huge bulk and then depending on how many people file they split up the payments. I Received about 12 calls total was suppose to be 15 to 25 per call but i guess alot of people filled out for the class action and after lawyers fees there wasnt much money left. Waste of time

I received a check for $3.95 but my bank won't cash it because my name does not appear on the check. It's Pay to the order of is "POTENTIAL CLASS MEMBER". If you're going to send someone a check @ the very least it should be made out to the person!! I have a check that's no good now.

I received a check $3.95 for my headaches. You would think receiving calls all day from people interrupting your work and other things, you would be compensated more. I sent every number that I have and had that was eligible, and out of $28 mil this is all my worn nerves are worth. To me this is not right or fair.
