Federal Court Dismisses TCPA Claim over Crafty Consent Revocations

Kohl’s Department Stores, like many a mobile marketer, uses a “How to Opt-Out” message to instruct consumers on how to stop receiving future text messages. The message includes instructions to text any of these commands: STOP, CANCEL, QUIT, UNSUBSCRIBE, OR END. 

But instead of using these one-word commands, one woman replied with a variety of messages:
  • “I’ve changed my mind and don’t want to receive these anymore.”
  • "Please don't send any further messages."
  • "I don't want these messages anymore. This is your last warning!"

The individual cited violations of the Telephone Consumer Protect Act. Learn how the federal district court for the District of New Jersey ruled .
