LOS ANGELES – A Walnut consumer claims a debt collector continued to call him after he asked the calls to stop.
Morgan Flint filed a complaint on Feb. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division 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 he sustained damages from receiving unwanted calls from the defendant.
