LA Fitness Text Messages
We are investigating reports that LA Fitness has been sending unsolicited text messages to current and former club members advertising deals on enrollment fees and other exclusive offers. Federal law prohibits certain promotional texts and can allow the recipient of an unwanted text message to collect between $500 and $1500 for each text violation. If you have received promotional texts from LA Fitness, we want to hear from you – please call 1.800.887.8029 or submit an online inquiry form.
What counts as a violation?
Text message ads have become the modern day version of junk mail – receiving them is annoying and, in some cases, you pay for it since most cell phone carriers charge per incoming text. But you may have recourse under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Just because you provided your phone number to a company does not give them the right to send you unsolicited messages. After October 16, 2013, the TCPA require companies to obtain prior written consent (a signature is needed) that you specifically agree to receive text messages from an auto-dialer and that your consent is not a condition of purchase.
Consumers are becoming desensitized to the annoying – and costly – effects of unsolicited text messages, and may feel that spam text messages have become the “norm,” habitually deleting messages as they come through with increasing irritation. What many don’t know is laws have been put in place to protect consumers like you from receiving unwanted messages invading your phone and increasing your phone bill.
Their ad should not be on your tab – don’t let companies push their advertising costs on you. We have helped consumers nationwide with their TCPA claims.
