TAMPA – A Tampa man alleges a student loan lending company has been calling him in an attempt to collect a debt from another person.

Christopher Rodriguez filed a complaint on March 28 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Navient Solutions Inc. alleging that it violated the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that since around June 2015, he constantly received calls on his cellular telephone even after he advised defendants that he is not the person it is trying to reach. The plaintiff holds Navient Solutions Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly contacted him seeking to collect a debt that belongs to another consumer. It also allegedly made calls using an automated telephone dialing system and/or pre-recorded or artificial voice messages, which is a violation of the TCPA.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an injunction prohibiting defendants from contacting him; compensation for actual, treble and statutory damages; reasonable attorneys' fees; prejudgment and post-judgment interest; and for such other relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Benjamin H. Crumley of Crumley & Wolf PA in Jacksonville.
