A text message marketing company investigated by the FTC for allegedly sending millions of illegal spam text messages

A text message marketing company investigated by the FTC for allegedly sending millions of illegal spam text messages to consumers is banned from sending any unsolicited text messages, under a settlement agreement entered by a federal court.

According to the FTC millions of text messages were sent pitching mortgage modification services to consumers and instructing them visit various websites advertised in the messages, including Loanmod-gov.net,  which claimed to provide “Official Home Loan Modification and Audit Assistance Information,” and displayed a photo of an American flag.

The FTC alleged that the defendant collected information from consumers who responded to the text messages, including those who responded by asking to be removed from his list and sold it to 3rd parties, claiming the consumers were “debt settlement leads.”

The settlement imposes a judgment of $58,946.90 against the defendant Phil Flora. Based on sworn financial representations of financial hardship made by Flora, the judgment will be satisfied if he pays just $32,000. If it is determined that the financial information he gave the FTC was not true, the full amount of the judgment will become due.

If you have been the victim of unsolicited text messages, you may be entitled to compensation, per the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).   Please call Los Angeles Consumer Protection Attorney, Todd M. Friedman at (877) 449-8898
