Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD): Sued Under TCPA

Boston, MA 06/03/2014 (wallstreetpr) – Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) is sued under TCPA class action. The company is alleged with the charges of sending unsolicited text messages. It is the clear violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (the “TCPA”). It is not the first time it is sued for violating the TCPA.

The charges

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) has to prepare a case to defend against the TCPA class action lawsuit. The charges are that the company has sent number of unsolicited text messages to the applicant. The unsolicited messages were sent through the automatic telephone dialing system. They were the promotional messages that requested the plaintiff to subscribe for prescription alerts. The plaintiff made it clear about the information on the mobile number. It said that it never provided the company with the information on his mobile telephone number. He never allowed the company to send him the text messages on the subscriptions offered by the company at various points of time.

No response to the STOP message

The plaintiff further added that when he received the messages for the first time, he even tried to stop it by replying STOP to the messages. He received an immediate reply that stated that the plaintiff was unsubscribed from the services. But it never happened. He was continuously disturbed by the prescription alerts service. He received the prescription message again after two days. He again sent the message STOP to unsubscribe and received a confirmation message that he won’t receive any messages in the future.

Listen to the needs

It is not a problem of just one individual, but the problem of the entire class of persons in the US who are continuously bothered from such text messages from Rite Aid and the other companies. Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) should consider the interest of people by allowing them to stay undisturbed by the prescription text messages.
