British Accent

District Court Rules the Plaintiff Cannot Revoke Consent Through Strategies Such as the Use of a Fake British Accent

The plaintiff in Johnson v. Capital One Servs., No. 18-cv-62058, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 159633 (S.D. Fla. Sept. 16, 2019) attempted a novel technique in order to provoke Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) violations from the defendant: trying to revoke consent by speaking with a fake British accent and telling the defendant's agent that they were calling a "wrong number."
