LOS ANGELES – A Garden Grove consumer alleges a debt collector called him at an excessive rate.
Damon Chandler filed a complaint on Feb. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Progressive Finance Holdings LLC 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 August 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls at an excessive and harassing rate. The plaintiff holds Progressive Finance Holdings LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite his request to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, treble damages, all legal fees, punitive damages, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Trinette G. Kent of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
