Burger King Sending You Unwanted Texts?

Are you receiving Burger King text spam? If you texted “BK7” to 40814 for a Burger King SMS coupon, you likely wanted the fast food restaurant’s offers. But if you didn’t sign up or if you now can’t get the text messages to stop, you may be able to recover money. Our firm has received complaints that Burger King doesn’t honor “opt-out” requests. In other words, when consumers ask to stop receiving Burger King text messages, the texts keep coming.

Burger King has taken a circuitous corporate route. The fast food chain was founded back in 1953, sold to Pillsbury, was publicly traded for about eight years, and was then purchased by 3G Capital, after which it again became privately held. Today, Burger King has a “whopping” 15,000 franchise restaurants in more than 100 countries.

Fast food chains may pride themselves on speed, but they shouldn’t take shortcuts with their text messaging programs. After all, the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Federal Communications Commission regulate what businesses can and cannot do with respect to text messages.

For example, the law says that a company must have your permission to send you a text. It also forbids businesses from sending additional text messages once you’ve asked them to stop. When a company keeps texting you after you’ve told them not to, you can sue in federal court for $500 to $1,500 per text.

    I am getting inundated and harassed by Burger King text messages. Even after I block their numbers, they keep coming at me. Very upsetting as these texts interrupt me throughout the day when I am trying to concentrate on work. I want to sue Burger King for this and/or join a class action lawsuit. Please advise. Thank you, BFP.
