MetroPCS Hit With Class Action Suit Over False Ads
Dec 15, 2009, 12:35 PM by Eric M. Zeman
A MetroPCS customer is filing a class action lawsuit against the company and claims that its advertisements are misleading. The lead plaintiff in the case purchased MetroPCS' "Unlimited International Calls" add-on option for the advertised price of $5. The plaintiff claims that neither MetroPCS nor its representatives made known the number of countries that are excluded from the plan, noting specifically that the U.K. and Israel are excluded. The suit alleges that MetroPCS breached its contract, misled consumers, used bait-and-switch tactics, and violated consumer protection laws. The lawsuit was filed in New York.
