SAN FRANCISCO – A San Francisco County consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against a debt collector alleging it continued to call him despite requests to stop.
Tommy Phillips filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Wilber & Associates PC alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in March, he was called several times on his cellular telephone by the defendant in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
