LOS ANGELES – A resident alleges that a debt collector continued to call her after it acknowledged her request to stop calling.
Mary Green filed a complaint on Sept. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Wells Fargo and Does 1-50 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in November 2014, she received several collection calls from the defendant. She alleges she mailed a letter to the defendant requesting that the calls stop, and that the defendant mailed her a letter in December 2014 that stated all automated calls to her would be discontinued. The plaintiff holds Wells Fargo and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to call her with an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, all damages, injunction against the defendant, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Matthew C. Bradford and Jonathan C. Fuller of Robinson Bradford LLP in Temecula and Ivan Trahan of Trahan Law Group in Temecula.
