August 24, 2017 — Law Office of Chris R. Miltenberger, PLLC

If you have questions or concerns about opting out, call me; I can explain.  The opt out deadline is soon but there is still time to opt out. The deadline is November 27, 2017.

If you received a postcard with a notice from Collecto about calls regarding debt collection and a class action, please read this!

Under the terms of the class action settlement agreement you have the option to “opt out” and pursue an individual claim.  This allows you to potentially recover $500 to $1,500 per call as opposed to the meager class settlement.

If you do not opt out of the Class, under the Class Action Settlement you release Collecto from any and all liability related to their calls to your cell phone and use of an autodialer or other predictive dialer.  In return you will receive less than $25.00 if all individuals make claims. That is all.

I am now accepting individual cases from across the United States against Collecto. 

You can consider an individual claim if:

  • You received calls on your cell phone;
  • You did not give Collecto or the original creditor permission to call your cell phone; and
  • You were called with an auto dialer (computer) or a pre-recorded message was left.

By opting out you may be eligible for damages in the amount of $500 or $1,500 per call!

Collecto will pay approximately $3.2 million (before deduction of attorneys’ fees ($1.3 million) and expenses, administrative costs and incentive awards) to resolve litigation accusing the debt collection company of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by making autodialed phone calls to consumers without their consent. There are approximately 206,000 individuals in the settlement class.  You do the math.  If you have been called multiple times by them you should consider contacting me to discuss.

If you do not opt-out you get the same small settlement no matter how many calls you received. This settlement makes no sense on an individual basis especially for those who received a substantial number of calls.

By opting out you can possibly receive the statutory damages of $500 per call or $1,500 per willful call. You must opt-out by the Court imposed deadline.

I represent individuals against Collecto on a contingency fee basis.  You pay no legal fees or expenses unless you win!

Even if you have already filed your claim in the class action you can still opt out.

Additionally, you do not need records of the number of times Collecto called you.  Once you file a lawsuit Collecto will have to produce the call detail records showing the number of times they called you.
