Welcome to the Luster v. Wells Fargo Dealer Services, Inc., Website
United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Case No. 1:15-cv-01058-TWT (N.D. Ga.)
IF YOU RECEIVED A CALL OR TEXT FROM WELLS FARGO ON YOUR CELLULAR TELEPHONE IN CONNECTION WITH AN AUTOMOBILE RETAIL INSTALLMENT SALE CONTRACT 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.
A federal court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A consumer brought a lawsuit alleging that Wells Fargo Dealer Services, Inc., a division of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (“Wells Fargo” or “Defendant”), violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. § 227, by using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice to initiate calls or text messages to cell phones (“Automatic Calls”) in connection with automobile retail installment sale contracts, and that these Automatic Calls were made without the prior express consent of Class Members. Wells Fargo denies the allegations.
A settlement has been reached in this case, which affects individuals who received an Automatic Call regarding a Wells Fargo automobile financing account between April 1, 2011 and March 30, 2016.
The Settlement, if approved, would provide $14,834,058 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 Class Counsel’s attorneys’ fees and costs, a service award to the Class Representative, and administrative costs of the Settlement; avoid the further cost and risk associated with continuing the lawsuit; and release Wells Fargo from further liability.
