OAKLAND — A Fremont woman is suing a Pennsylvania debt collector, alleging misrepresentation in debt collection and violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Ruthann Lopez filed a complaint Aug. 17 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Oakland Division against Arcadia Recovery Bureau LLC of Reading, Pennsylvania, alleging the debt collector illegally called the plaintiff several times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt, violating the Telephone Consume Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Lopez suffered damages from being contacted on her cellular telephone without her consent. The plaintiff alleges Arcadia kept calling her on her cell phone despite Lopez's request to stop. The suit says Arcadia's constant calling prevent Lopez from receiving other calls on her cell phone.
Lopez seeks trial by jury, actual damages, statutory damages, legal fees, enjoin the defendant and all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Arturo E. Matthews Jr. of Tustin.
