SACRAMENTO – A Vallejo consumer is accusing a debt collector of placing harassing and abusive telephone calls using an autodialer and has filed a class-action suit.
Sheron Cook filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Receivables Performance Management LLC alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practice Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between July 2015 and September 2015, she was contacted on her cellular phone several times by the defendant. The plaintiff holds Receivables Performance Management LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly ignored plaintiff's request to stop calling her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief against the defendant, $1,500 as treble damages for each and every call, $500 in statutory damages, all other damages, legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Annick M. Persinger, and Yeremey O. Krivoshey of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek.
