LOS ANGELES – A Woodland Hills consumer claims a debt collector called him 100 times after he revoked his consent for it to call him.
Marvin Smith filed a complaint on March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Capital One Financial Corp. alleging that the collecting agency violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in September 2014, he was caused to endure emotional distress and severe mental anguish from defendant's campaign of calls using an automated telephone dialing system in an attempt to collect on plaintiff's alleged debt. The plaintiff holds Capital One Financial Corp. responsible because the defendant's calls allegedly caused him to endure emotional distress and severe mental anguish.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, statutory damages of $500 for every violation and $1,500 for every willful violation, and other relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Stuart Price of Price Law Group APC in Encino.
