SACRAMENTO – A consumer claims a bank continued to call him for collection purposes after he revoked his consent to receive calls.
Matt Howard filed a complaint on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Chase Bank USA NA and Does 1 through 100 over alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between Jan. 11 and March 10, despite sending the defendant letter confirming he had legal counsel to assist him in dealing with the alleged debt, the defendant continued to make unsolicited calls on his cellular telephone using automatic dialing machines and pre-recorded messages.
The plaintiff holds Chase Bank USA NA responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to call the plaintiff frequently despite withdrawing his consent to be contacted by an automatic dialing machine.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award for actual and statutory damages of $1,500 and injunctive relief prohibiting such conduct in the future. He is represented by Scott J. Sagaria, Elliot W. Gale, Joe B. Angelo and Scott M. Johnson of Sagaria Law PC in Roseville.
