Vacation Experts International Facing Telephone Consumer Protection Act Suit Over Alleged Prerecorded Voicemails

Lee v. Vacation Experts International LLC

Vacation Experts International, LLC is the defendant in a proposed class action in which a Florida consumer alleges the company placed automated calls to her cellphone without her prior express consent.

In June 2018, the case alleges, the plaintiff received five prerecorded voicemails from the defendant regarding her timeshare order. The suit claims the defendants, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), failed to obtain the plaintiff’s prior express written consent before using an automatic dialing system to place the calls to the woman’s phone.

Adding to the defendant’s alleged TCPA violations, the complaint notes that the plaintiff’s phone number was listed on the National Do Not Call Registry when she received the company’s solicitations.

Facial Rejuvenation of South Florida allegedly sent text message to woman without consent

Laura Montanari v. Ageless Solutions

MIAMI (Legal Newsline) – A Miami-Dade County, Florida resident alleges a Miami business sent her a telemarketing text without her permission.

Laura Montanari filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Nov. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Facial Rejuvenation of South Florida LLC, doing business as MD Ageless Solutions, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

According to the complaint, the plaintiff received a telemarketing text message from the defendant on June 13 that stated it was looking for volunteers for procedures and advertised a discount on other services. She alleges she never provided consent to the defendant to receive the messages.

The plaintiff holds Facial Rejuvenation of South Florida LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly engaged in an unlawful practice of using an automatic telephone dialing system and communicated with plaintiff without prior express consent to send the text messages.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, to certify the class action, award actual and statutory damages, declaratory and injunctive relief and other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Andrew J. Shamis of Shamis & Gentile, P.A. in Miami and Scott Edelsberg of Edelsberg Law PA in Aventura, Florida.

  2. Screenshot your text message or write down that number that calls you, as well as the company that they are calling from! Often ascertaining the identify of these companies is difficult, so the more information the better.
