Important Update: The Court issued a Final Approval Order and Judgment on January 30, 2017. Settlement awards were mailed on April 28, 2017 to all Class Members who filed a valid and timely claim.
IF YOU RECEIVED A CALL OR NON-EMERGENCY TEXT FROM WELLS FARGO ON YOUR CELLULAR TELEPHONE IN CONNECTION WITH A RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE OR HOME EQUITY LOAN BY MEANS OF AN AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE DIALING SYSTEM AND/OR AN ARTIFICIAL OR PRERECORDED VOICE, YOU COULD RECEIVE A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.
Plaintiffs brought lawsuits alleging that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (“Wells Fargo”) violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"), 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. by using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice to place calls or send nonemergency texts to cell phones ("Automatic Calls") in connection with residential mortgage and home equity loan accounts, and that these Automatic Calls were made without the prior express consent of Class Members. Wells Fargo denies the allegations in the lawsuits.
A settlement has been reached in these cases and affects individuals who:
- Received an Automatic Call regarding a Wells Fargo Residential Mortgage Loan Account between November 17, 2011 and February 29, 2016; or
- Received an Automatic Call regarding a Wells Fargo Home Equity Loan Account between April 14, 2011 and February 29, 2016.
The Settlement provides $16,416,239.40 to pay valid and timely claims of those persons who received any of the above-described Automatic Calls from Wells Fargo, as well as to pay Plaintiffs' attorneys’ fees, service awards to the three class representatives, and administrative costs of the settlement; avoid the further cost and risk associated with continuing the lawsuits; and release Wells Fargo from further liability.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don't act.
