Your Phone Number Could be Part of Huge Lawsuit
If you have ever gotten a telemarketing call from Dish Network, you could be owed $1,200.
If you put your phone number on the National Do Not Call List and you still got calls from Dish Network between May 11, 2010, and August 1, 2011 you could be a part of big lawsuit settlement that could mean $1,200 in your pocket.
According to USA Today, a federal judge in North Carolina has ruled that the company Dish Network has violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act as a lawsuit was filed by Thomas Krakauer back in 2014. He claimed that Dish Network made illegal telemarketing calls to his phone number, which was on the do-not-call list.
After the judge found in favor of Krakauer he announced that over 18,000 phone numbers would be a part of the settlement.
