TAMPA – A Sarasota County woman alleges a bank harassed her with phone calls after she requested it to stop.
Janice Paul filed a complaint on May 4 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Bank of America N.A. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that since September 2015, she has received approximately 200 calls from the defendant to her cellular telephone in an attempt to collect on a purported automobile loan. The plaintiff holds Bank of America NA responsible because the defendant allegedly attempted to collect an alleged debt using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or pre-recorded or artificial voice, intentionally harassed and abused her by calling several times during one day and on back-to-back days and failed to honor her request to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, treble damages and any other such relief the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Frank H. Kerney III of Morgan & Morgan, Tampa PA in Tampa.
