Microsoft Sends Illegal Texts Violating Federal Law

November 12, 2017 by in Investigations

Microsoft used deceptive advertising to encourage people to give their phone number in exchange for a chance to win products and enter sweepstakes. Instead, consumers received spam texts and solicitations. Sending texts could be a violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). We are accepting clients in all 50 states who received a text message from Microsoft. Call us toll free today at 888-333-8996 or fill out the form on this page if you have received these texts.

Lawsuits filed against Microsoft allege a violation of the TCPA because consumers did not consent to receive text message advertisements. Some consumers received 10 texts per month from Microsoft.

Why Texts From Microsoft Were Illegal

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act protects people from getting unwanted calls and texts. Consumers must consent to receive certain types of calls or texts from companies, and you have a right to tell these companies to stop contacting you. If you did not specifically tell Microsoft that they could contact you, then it could be illegal for the company to send you a text.

Microsoft lured consumers into giving their telephone number promising sweepstakes, free products, and discounts. They did not tell consumers their numbers would be stored and used later for advertising.

Financial Damages in a TCPA Lawsuit

If you did not consent to receiving certain types of calls or texts from Microsoft, then you could receive a financial award for their wrongdoing. The federal law states that a consumer could collect between $500 — $1500 for each unwanted text or call.
