LOS ANGELES – A consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against a debt settlement business alleging it called him without his permission to solicit services.
Jason Alan filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Consumer Credit Card Relief LLC, Jenssen Varela, Luis Vecchi and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in January, he sustained damages and charges for incoming calls from the defendants in an attempt to solicit services. The plaintiff holds Consumer Credit Card Relief, LLC, Jenssen Varela, Luis Vecchi and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the plaintiff has never provided any personal information to the defendants and never gave his consent to call him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages for each and every violation, $1,500 as treble damages for each and every violation and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Beverly Hills.
