LOS ANGELES – A Kansas debt collector is alleged to have called a Los Angeles County consumer 100 times after he requested it quit calling.
Jason Scott filed a complaint on April 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Speedy Cash alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant contacted him in an attempt to collect an alleged debt and he instructed the defendant's representatives to cease contacting him. He alleges the defendant has contacted him 100 times since he asked it to stop calling.
The plaintiff holds Speedy Cash responsible because the defendant allegedly violated RFDCPA by causing a telephone to ring repeatedly to annoy plaintiff, called plaintiff with such frequency meant to abuse or harass, and unlawfully utilized an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, statutory damages, treble damages, costs and attorneys’ fees, interest, and further relief as the court may deem just. He is represented by Matthew A. Rosenthal of Westgate Law in Paramount.
