OAKLAND – An Oakland consumer alleges a debt collector repeatedly called her at her workplace.
Amy Miller filed a complaint on Sept. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Oakland Division against Receivables Performance Management LLC alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she has received incessant calls on her cellular telephone from the defendant for the past 12 months, sometimes during plaintiff's work hours. She alleges she communicated her desire for defendant to cease calling her, but the calls did not stop, which allegedly caused her emotional distress in the form of frustration, annoyance and anxiety.
The plaintiff holds Receivables Performance Management LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly violated the FDCPA by calling at a time or place known to be inconvenient to plaintiff, by calling incessantly with intent to harass or abuse, and by using unfair means to collect an alleged debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for actual damages, statutory damages, costs, attorney’s fees and equitable relief as the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Arturo E. Matthews Jr. of Hyslip & Taylor LLC LPA in Los Angeles.
