Welcome to the Prather v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. Settlement Website
United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Case No. 1:15-cv-042310-SCJ (N.D. Ga.)
IF YOU RECEIVED A CALL OR TEXT FROM WELLS FARGO ON YOUR CELLULAR TELEPHONE IN CONNECTION WITH A STUDENT 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.
A consumer brought a lawsuit alleging that 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 to cell phones ("Automatic Calls") in connection with a student loan, 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 student loan account from April 21, 2011 to December 19, 2015.
The Settlement, if approved, would provide $2,075,071.80 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, 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.
