SiriusXM Faces Consumer Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Over Marketing Practices

- by

Los Angeles, CA: SiriusXM is facing a consumer fraud class action lawsuit over allegations the company improperly uses license and registration data to send unauthorized marketing materials to its customers.

The lawsuit, entitled Randall Hall v. SiriusXM Radio, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-5968, and filed by plaintiff Randall Hall, claims SiriusXM is in violation of the Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) because it gathers personal information about buyers of certain used vehicles that come equipped with three months of free SiriusXM satellite radio, without the buyers' knowledge. Then, in an attempt to gain new subscriptions, the lawsuit claims SiriusXM uses that information to market to those buyers.

According to the lawsuit, SiriusXM' marketing practices are under investigation by the Attorney' General of 30 states. The lawsuit also contends that plaintiff Hall' request to be removed from the marketing contact list, which he made directly to the company, was ignored. Hall further alleges that SiriusXM made it seem that he would be billed for services he never received, nor subscribed to.

The SiriusXM consumer fraud class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all consumers in the United States to whom SiriusXM mailed marketing materials or business solicitations, where such person' name, address or the VIN associated with a purchased vehicle was obtained by SiriusXM directly or indirectly from a motor vehicle record and such mailing was made without the express consent of the person to whom the information pertains.
