MIAMI – A consumer is suing a debt collector alleging that it communicated with her through unfair and unconscionable means.
Gabriela Urias filed a complaint on March 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Credit Protection Association LP, alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant allegedly sent a collection post card seeking payment for an alleged debt with Miami-Dade Expressway Authority. The suit states that communication about a debt through the use of a post card is prohibited under the FDCPA.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for statutory and actual damages, attorneys’ fees and costs and any further relief that the court may deem appropriate and just. She is represented by Thomas J. Patti of Thomas-John Law PA in Fort Lauderdale and Jibrael S. Hindi of The Law Offices of Jibrael S. Hindi in Fort Lauderdale.
