LOS ANGELES — A California woman is suing Capital One Bank, alleging violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Kimberly Brown of Lancaster filed a complaint Sept. 8 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Capital One Bank NA, alleging the bank illegally called the plaintiff in an attempt to collect an alleged debt, violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
