LOS ANGELES – A Long Beach consumer alleges a debt collector contacted him 61 times after he asked the calls to stop.
Sean Jackson filed a complaint on June 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Capital One Bank USA NA alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff asked a representative of the defendant to stop calling him in September 2017, but the calls have continued. He alleges he has received 61 calls from the defendant since making the request.
The plaintiff holds Capital One Bank USA NA responsible because the defendant allegedly unlawfully utilized an automatic dialer and automated voice and contacted plaintiff without prior express consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for statutory damages of $500 for every negligent violation and $1,500 for every knowing violation, actual damages and compensatory damages, costs, attorneys’ fees, and other relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Alyson Dykes of The Law Offices of Jeffrey Lohman PC in Corona.
