LOS ANGELES – A Montebello individual alleges a debt collector continued to call her after she asked for the calls to stop.
Ricela Ramirez filed a complaint on Feb. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Capital One, National Association alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in 2016, she suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant.
