CHICAGO (CN) – McDonald’s is costing people money by sending spam text messages to cell phones to try to lure people into playing “McDonald’s Monopoly,” a class action claims in Cook County Chancery Court.
McDonald’s Monopoly is one of the burger giant’s most successful promos, the class claims. Plaintiffs say McDonald’s unsolicited mass spam blasts cost the unwitting recipients money and violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. They want an injunction, statutory and treble damages.
