RIVERSIDE – A Moreno Valley consumer alleges a financial institution harassed her with calls.
Maria Kobayashi filed a complaint on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against JPMorgan Chase Bank NA alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2016, she suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant. The plaintiff holds JP Morgan Chase Bank NA responsible because the defendant allegedly called the plaintiff despite her several requests to stop calling and used an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiff seeks injunction against the defendant, $500 in statutory damages, treble damages of $1,500, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Matthew A. Rosenthal of Westgate Law in Los Angeles.
