LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles resident has filed a class-action against a debt collector over allegations it called him after he revoked his consent to receive calls.
Shawn Evelyn filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Wyndham Vacation Resorts Inc. and Does 1-100 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in June 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Wyndham Vacation Resorts Inc. and Does 1-100 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite his request to stop calling him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C. in Woodland Hills.
