LOS ANGELES – An Ojai consumer claims a debt collector continued to call him after he sent multiple requests for the calls to stop.
William Wilburn filed a complaint on Feb. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A. and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls on his cellular telephone.
