SAN FRANCISCO – A Redwood City individual alleges a Stanton-based debt collector contacted co-workers, her ex-husband and a relative over an alleged debt.
Sonia E. Anaya filed a complaint on Jan. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against D. Scott Carruthers APC alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in August 2016, she started receiving calls from the defendant in an attempt to collect a consumer debt. The suit states the defendant contacted the plaintiff's relative, a co-worker and her ex-husband and disclosed the alleged debt.
The plaintiff holds D. Scott Carruthers APC responsible because the defendant allegedly harassed her with calls and continued to call her at work despite her requests not to do so.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, actual and statutory damages, costs of litigation and attorney's fees. She is represented by Crosby S. Connolly and Robert L. Hyde of Hyde & Swigart in San Diego.
