A class action complaint contends that Frontier Communications illegally promoted its services through deceptive marketing tactics. The complaint argues that, based on the advertising claims that were made in commercials, defendant represents to prospective customers that there are no installation fees, activation fees or any other miscellaneous expenses other than the advertised “advertised price” of the service plans offered by the defendant.
Subsequent to that, the complaint argues that defendant provides a free service and does not require an initial deposit. In other words, this lawsuit charges that the defendant has engaged in a scheme of deception, fraud and/or unfair practices.
There is a class action complaint filed against defendant that involves claims that the defendant violated the FDCPA when it sold its broadband Internet service plan without requiring the customer to purchase any hardware or equipment to be able to use the service. According to the complaint, the defendant made false promises to the public when it came to selling its broadband Internet service plan. For example, defendant represented to potential customers that they would not need to purchase any type of equipment or hardware in order to receive their broadband Internet service, according to the complaint. In addition, defendant falsely represented that all of the equipment that was used in installing its broadband service had been provided by Frontier Communications. When customers finally received the service, they were surprised to discover that it did not come with any of the equipment that had been promised to them in the advertising that was promoted in the commercial.
The class action complaint also charges that the defendant violated the FDCPA by selling its broadband service plan without providing the customers with written information regarding installation and maintenance costs for the broadband service. When the customers actually purchased the service, they discovered that they had to pay all of the fees that were charged on their monthly bill, which included maintenance and installation fees.
This class action complaint seeks damages from defendant for any injuries that have been caused by its conduct and the financial loss that customers have sustained as a result of the defendant’s violations. The lawsuit also seeks monetary damages against defendant that are in excess of one hundred thousand dollars per customer, which is the amount that the FDCPA entitles the class to recover for each customer in the case. In addition to monetary damages, the complaint seeks damages for mental anguish, pain and suffering and property damage.
