If you received one or more text messages from take-and-bake pizza chain Papa Murphy’s between Oct. 16, 2013, and June 15, 2015, you could have some cash headed your way.
The pizza chain agreed to a $22.6 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit earlier this year. Those entitled to money have until Aug. 14 to file a claim.
According to the settlement, the company was accused of sending unwanted advertisements via text, violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) in the process. The TCPA guards against those annoying telemarketers who call or text you without your permission.
If you qualify for this class action, you should have gotten a letter or email with a class member ID number and passcode. If you got one, head over to the claims website to submit your claim. If you didn’t get one but feel you should have, you can reach the class administrator at PapaMurphysTCPAsettlement@cptgroup.com or 888-563-1256.
The settlement will be split between $10 restaurant vouchers and $10 checks. The vouchers will be sent automatically; no claim form is necessary. But only those who make a claim will get cash.
Despite the settlement, Papa Murphy’s denies all wrongdoing.
