SAN FRANCISCO – Two California residents have filed a class-action complaint against a debt collector alleging it made harassing phone calls.
Kalisha Johnson and Johnetta Mingo filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Collecto Inc., doing business as EOS CCA, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that between 2015 and 2016, they suffered damages from being called several times by the defendant. The plaintiffs hold Collecto Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly contacted both plaintiffs several times using an automatic dialing system despite their requests for it to stop calling them.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek injunctive relief, $1,500 as treble damages for each and every call, $500 in statutory damages for each and every call, damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Annick M. Persinger and Yeremey O. Krivoshey of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek and Scott A. Bursor of Bursor & Fisher PA in New York, New York.
