LOS ANGELES – A Palmdale resident claims a debt collector called her multiple times after she revoked her consent to be contacted.
Elaine Moreno filed a complaint on Feb. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Citibank NA, Best Buy Co. Inc. and Does 1 to 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 December 2016, she suffered damages from receiving several collection calls on her cellular telephone. The plaintiff holds Citibank NA, Best Buy Co. Inc. and Does 1 to 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite her requests to stop calling her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000, actual damages, all legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Stuart Price of Price Law Group in Encino.
