In this case, Plaintiff alleges that improper, automated calls were made for debt collection purposes in connection with Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s credit card accounts between September 3, 2009 and July 22, 2015.
These calls allegedly violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. (the “TCPA”), because the calls were made using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice without the consent of the person called.
If you received a telephone call attempting to collect a debt owed on a Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s credit card account between September 3, 2009 and July 22, 2015, then you are eligible to file a claim. If you submit a valid claim, either On Line Claim Form or by mail Claim Form (PDF: 10.4 KB), by December 29, 2015 you will receive a payment and will give up certain rights to sue Defendants.
The Settlement will provide $12,500,000 (the “Fund”) to pay all amounts related to the Settlement, including all settlement awards to claiming settlement class members, an attorneys’ fee award to be decided by the Court, any incentive award to be decided by the Court and settlement administration costs. Settlement class members who submit a valid and timely claim form will receive up to $750, although the final amount is likely to be less, and depends upon the number of valid claim forms received.
