LOS ANGELES – A Playa Del Ray consumer alleges that a North Carolina-based debt collector ignored his request to stop calling him.
Daniel S. Earle filed a complaint on Aug. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Seterus Inc. alleging that the debt collector repeatedly violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendant has called him multiple times in the last four years and that in December 2017, he spoke with a representative and requested that the calls stop. He alleges the defendant ignored his requested and continued to call him using an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiff holds Seterus Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to call him knowing it lacked his consent to call him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $500 for each violation and $1,000 for each willful violation, punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Trinette G. Kent of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
