Auto dialing machines have become a big no-no and the Chase Home Mortgage TCPA Lawsuit claims that JPMorgan Chase used these types of machines to contact mortgage owners. These robo-calling machines are against the law and class members of this lawsuit could receive a cash payment of up to $500. The lawsuit is styled Patricia Connor, et al. v. JPMorgan Chase Bank and Fannie Mae and claims that Chase violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by contacting these borrowers without their consent or permission. Please remember that in order to receive any type of settlement payment you must file a claim form before July 10, 2012. Chase denies any wrong doing what so ever but has agreed to terms. As mentioned earlier the maximum amount payable under this settlement is $500 with a minimum amount of $25. The amount will depend on a variety of factors to include the amount of claims actually filed.
