SAN FRANCISCO – A Virginia man claims a San Francisco business called him at an "excessive and harassing rate" to collect an alleged debt owed by a third party.
Kevin Murray filed a complaint on Aug. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Wells Fargo Bank NA alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant has contacted him repeatedly to collect a reported debt owned by another person. The plaintiff holds Wells Fargo Bank NA responsible because the defendant allegedly contacted plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite plaintiff's demand to stop calling him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $500 for each call, treble damages for each violation and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Trinette G. Kent of Lemberg Law LLC in Phoenix, Arizona and of Lemberg Law, LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
