SANTA ANA – Several consumers have filed a class-action suit against Midland Credit Management Inc. over allegations of harassment.
Natalie Huffman, Steve Huffman, Inna Borboa Badran, et al. filed a complaint on Feb. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division against Midland Credit Management Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging that they violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they were caused to suffer from a barraged of calls using an auto-dialer and artificial voice from the defendant in its attempt to collect on an alleged debt. The plaintiffs hold Midland Credit Management Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly refused to honor plaintiffs’ do-not-call requests, attempted to bully plaintiffs into making immediate payment, and unlawfully utilized an automatic dialer and automated voice.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, $500 in statutory damages per violation, treble damages in an amount up to $1,500 per violation, and further relief as may be just. They are represented by Tammy Hussin of Hussin Law in Encinitas.
