We all get those calls that you have won the lottery or a cruise to the Caribbean. Normally you always hang up. But imagine if the call was legit. According to an ABA Journal and Wall Street Journal Article that is precisely the problem the West Virginia Law Firm of Bailey & Glasser has. Firm lawyer John Barrett won a $20.4 million class action settlement against Dish Network. He and his staff are attempting to call members of the class to let them know that they are entitled to between $2400 to $30,000 before attorneys fees. Problem is that they are being hung up on.
To make matters worse, the reason the firm was calling was that they had less then 8% of the class respond to a letter.
