LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles man claims that a debt collector has harassed him with its frequent phone calls.
Samuel Johnson filed a complaint on June 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Wells Fargo Bank N.A. and Does 1 through 10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant called him more than 150 times between March and May. The plaintiff holds Wells Fargo Bank N.A. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff despite his request to stop calling and used an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendant, actual damages, $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Kian Mottahedeh and John D. Sarai of SM Law Group APC in Encino.
