Now Uber sued for textual harassment

Taxi app turned lawsuit magnet Uber last week was sued by Donna Giacomaro, a resident of Levittown, New York, for text message harassment, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and New York state law.The complaint, filed in the Eastern District of New York, alleges that Uber last month began sending Giacomaro text messages that she never consented to receive.The court filing claims Uber’s need to grow its customer database has made it disinclined to maintain an accurate list of Uber customers.”Because Defendant’s income is dependent on the number of consumers registering as customers of Defendant, Defendant’s customer enrollment process does not include procedures necessary to confirm the accuracy of the information Defendant receives from potential customers, including their phone numbers,” the complaint says.
