SAN DIEGO – A San Diego County consumer claims that a debt collector unlawfully contacted him.
Aaron Mendez filed a complaint on Jan. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Hunt & Henriques Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the California Rosenthal Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 16, 2017, the defendant mailed a dunning letter to him regarding an alleged debt despite the fact it was notified a month prior to contact plaintiff's counsel regarding the alleged debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, award of actual damages, statutory damages of $1,000, costs of litigation, attorney’s fees, and other relief that the court deems proper. He is represented by Eric A. LaGuardia of LaGuardia Law in San Diego.
