PHILADELPHIA – A Delaware County man has filed suit against two digital marketing companies in Florida and New York claiming he received illegal telemarketing calls from them on his cellphone.

Robert Murphy filed a complaint Oct. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against pr.business LLC of Florida and YEXT of New York alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).  

The suit states pr.business LLC is doing business as Onboarding Alexa and Alexa Signup.

Murphy alleges in January, he began to receive dozens of calls from pr.business, which was working on behalf of YEXT, attempting to offer him "placement on the Amazon Alexa Network." Murphy alleges the calls were made using an automatic telephone dialing system and made without his prior written consent, according to the suit.

Murphy seeks monetary damages, to enjoin the defendants from further engaging in the alleged unlawful conduct, a trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by Glenn Ellis and Joseph Marano of The Freiwald Law Firm PC in Philadelphia.
