MIAMI – A consumer alleges that a debt collector invaded her privacy.
Juanita C. Grant filed a complaint on April 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Deutsche Bank National Trust Co. alleging that the debt collector violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendant contacted her to attempt to collect a purported debt due to foreclosure and continued to call her after it knew that she was represented by a lawyer. The suit also states that the defendant made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or pre-recorded or artificial voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for statutory damages of $1,500 for each violation, an order enjoining defendant from calling her in the same manner and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Carlos J. Reyes of Reyes Law Group PA in Plantation.
