Joaquin County individual claims a debt collector's actions are likely
to mislead and confuse the least sophisticated consumer.

similarly situated on Jan. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of California against
Gone Inc. and Does 1-10
Fair Debt Collection
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.
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
