Are you receiving Zumiez text spam? If you signed up to receive marketing text messages at a Zumiez store or by texting 91404 for a Zumiez SMS coupon, you probably wanted the store’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 Zumiez doesn’t honor “opt-out” requests. In other words, when consumers ask to stop receiving Zumiez text messages, the texts keep coming.
Zumiez is the go-to clothing retailer for skateboarders and snowboarders. The company started out in 1978, and now has hundreds of stores across the country. They carry brands like RipNDip, Thrasher, Ninth Hall, and Huf, and offer popular pins and patches, sunglasses, hats, and watches. Zumiez also features Gold Gods necklaces and chains.
Skateboarders and snowboarders are known for taking shortcuts, but retailers 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.
