LOS ANGELES – A Long Beach resident alleges a debt collector left a voicemail for her and unlawfully failed to disclose its name or the nature of the call.
Latrena Cooper filed a complaint on Aug. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Western Division against GC Services LP alleging that the debt collector violated the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 2, 2017, she received a call from the defendant seeking payment for an alleged consumer debt. She alleges the defendant left a voicemail and failed to disclose the company's name or to state that the call was from a debt collector.
The plaintiff holds GC Services LP responsible because the defendant allegedly violated the RFDCPA by placing a call without disclosing its identity.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000, actual damages and compensatory damages, attorneys’ fees, costs and such other relief that may be just, proper and equitable. She is represented by Alyson J. Dykes of Law Offices of Jeffrey Lohman in Corona.
