SACRAMENTO – Two individuals allege a debt collector continued contacting them after requests to stop.
Toni Bailey and Veronica Mozi filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on April 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Data Check of Nevada LLC and Does 1-100, citing violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in February they both received unwanted calls in an attempt to collect a purported debt on their mobile phones. The suit states they were charged for the calls by their carrier. The plaintiffs hold Data Check of Nevada LLC Does 1-100 responsible because the defendants allegedly used a pre-recorded voice in contacting them even after they asked not to be contacted, which is a violation of the TCPA.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek $500 in statutory damages for each violation, $1,500 in treble damages for each violation, and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Beverly Hills.
