LOS ANGELES – A Palmdale consumer alleges a Virginia debt collector called her more than 100 times in a five-month period.
Briana Valdez filed a complaint on Aug. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Capital One Financial Corp. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that from October 2015 to February, she was contacted on her cellular telephone 165 times by the defendant despite her requests to stop calling her. The plaintiff holds Capital One Financial Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system in contacting plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $1,000 in statutory damages, actual damages, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Stuart Price of Price Law Group APC in Encino.
