This is a pending class action investigation against Lingo Inc. and its parent company Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc.
Lingo and Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc. are telecommunication carriers that offer Voice over IP solutions to residential and commercial clients worldwide.
This class action investigation is based upon consumer reports that for some time, Lingo has been offering US-based consumers a residential calling plan Lingo has named “Lingo World Max.” According to reports from consumers, the Lingo World Max plan offers unlimited calls to over 70 countries for $23.95 a month. The 70 countries are listed on the web site and can be easily changed by Lingo. A consumer must sign a 2-year contract and agree to online billing.
Consumers have alleged that beginning sometime in 2009, Lingo has been unilaterally canceling customer who have signed up for the Lingo World Max unlimited calling plan. Lingo reserves the right to cancel a contract at its “sole discretion” if Lingo deems the consumer usage to be for “business purposes” or “unauthorized” purposes. It appears then that Lingo is simply canceling unprofitable consumers, not those that “improperly” use the Lingo World Max service for "business purposes".
