TOPEKA – (April 13, 2015) − Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today reminded consumers that the approaching deadline for filing claims under a recent settlement with Sirius XM Radio, Inc., is May 1.
Schmidt, along with the attorneys general of 43 other states and the District of Columbia, reached a settlement with Sirius XM Radio, Inc., last December which requires the company to provide restitution to eligible consumers. The states alleged that the company engaged in misleading advertising and deceptive billing practices, such as automatically renewing customers’ subscriptions without sufficient notice and making cancellation difficult. In addition, the company agreed to pay $100,000 for violating the Kansas No Call Act.
Consumers may be eligible for restitution if they have filed a complaint regarding Sirius XM’s business practices since July 28, 2008. The deadline for filing complaints under this settlement is May 1, 2015. For more information or to file a complaint, Kansas consumers should contact the attorney general’s consumer protection division at www.InYourCornerKansas.org or (800) 432-2310.
