Abante Rooter And Plumbing Company........ Just Who Are They?


And why do they sue so many companies?

Last year, I got a card in the mail stating I was eligible to be included in class-action lawsuit against a telemarketer. I immediately ordered "Shields up, Ensign Crusher!"

But all I was asked for was my name, address, phone and email....... information that's already smeared all over the 'net. (Heck, they sent me the card so they were already 50% there.) So I figured what the he11... class-action lawsuits typically fork out about $10 per claim. I'm in for lunch money at least!

That was last spring and I had totally forgotten about it. Today, I get my settlement check in the mail. A tad over three hundred clams!

But still have my finger on the 'fire photon torpedoes' button. The check looks legit. I don't see any "By negotiating this check, you agree to change your wireless service to RipOff Cellular" language or anything else nefarious.

So before I trot to the bank and deposit my three free C-notes, I did some Googling. Turns out, Abante Rooter and Plumbing has more hits on searches that are connected to lawsuits than to a plumbing company.

Yet.......... there they are........a seemingly legit plumbing company (albeit a small one) with at least 8 class action suits against telemarketers. And big 'uns, like New York Life.

So does anyone know the back-story? Is this a 1-man plumbing shop who has the resources to make a chit-load of money filing lawsuits against telemarketers? Some of these suits are 8 digits settlements!

It's just Leo trying to get your banking info so he can collect his one dollar from you that has been owed for about 8 years now. I tried it too but you never answered.
