LOS ANGELES – A Ventura County woman alleges a debt collector invaded her privacy and has filed a class-action suit.
Cortney Perez filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Aug. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Credence Resource Management LLC alleging that the debt collector violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff claims that in March, she started receiving calls from the defendant in an attempt to collect an alleged outstanding debt. Although she has revoked any consent to call her, the suit states the defendant continued to call her multiple times using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice on her cellular telephone.
The plaintiffs hold Credence Resource Management LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly violated plaintiffs' right to privacy and violated TCPA by using an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, damages, costs of suit, attorney's fees and further relief as may be just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodland Hills.
