LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County couple claims a debt collector continued to call after they revoked their consent.
Andrade and Jose Andrade filed a complaint on Feb. 27 in the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California against Discover
Financial Services citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the
Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the
complaint, the plaintiffs allege that beginning in 2016 they suffered
damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant in
its attempt to collect a debt allegedly owed by
Andrade. The plaintiffs hold
Discover Financial Services responsible because the defendant allegedly
kept on calling the plaintiffs despite their repeated request to stop
calling and called with a frequency to constitute harassment.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek
injunction against the defendant, statutory damages, treble damages, all legal fees, interest
and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by
Matthew A. Rosenthal of Westgate Law in Los Angeles.
