SACRAMENTO – A San Joaquin County individual claims a debt collector's actions are likely to mislead and confuse the least sophisticated consumer.
Ferfina Garcia filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all other similarly situated on Jan. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Gone Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she felt harassed, annoyed, anxious, threatened and deceived as a result of defendant's conduct of making vague threats and innuendoes in its attempt to collect on an alleged debt. The plaintiffs hold Gone Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly made no disclosures or representations of its obligations under the FDCPA.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, certify the case as a class action, appoint representative, statutory damages of $1,000 for each member, actual damages, attorneys’ fees, costs of suit, interest, and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodland Hills.
