    Drove me nuts not knowing who/what it was?

    ADMIN – Hi Jaqueline,

    The text messages where clearly identifiable as coming from Caribou.

  2. Kacy says:

    I dont get whats this for??

    ADMIN – Hi Kacy,

    This is for Caribou sending texts to your cell phone without your authorization.

  3. Dorothy Smith says:

    I had no idea who it was

    ADMIN – Dorothy,

    Without knowing who texted you I don’t think you can file.

  4. Robin Bohmbach says:

    Isn’t that part of their rewards program
    They would send out text and people would get free coffee deals.
    Maybe someone unwittingly signed up for this program.

    ADMIN – Hi Robin,

    This only applies for those who had not given direct permission to be contacted.

    • Jenny says:

      This states without prior written consent, signing up for perks in my mind doesn’t give prior written consent, am I wrong there?

      ADMIN – Hi Jenny,

      It depends. If the disclosure indicates you gave prior consent then it means prior consent. Always read the small print.

  5. Lilia Almazan says:

    What if we aren’t sure if we can file a claim?

    ADMIN – Hi Lilia,

    File if you believe in your heart you are a class member.

  6. Leora Smith says:

    I’ve received a plethora of texts from Caribou during the time frame in question. Problem is, I literally cannot recall whether I signed up for their text messaging or not. It was a long time ago now. How would a person verify?

    ADMIN – Hi Leora,

    Consider filing a claim. The admin will then check and deny you if needed.

  7. STEVEN YUEN says:

    COFFEE WAS SO SOUR IT MADE ME THROW UP!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Steven,

    The question is: Did they text you?

  8. Cara says:

    I am looking thru my text history – what contact number (usually 6 digits) did they use to text people?

    ADMIN – Hi Cara,

    Please contact the class action administrator to obtain that info
