MIAMI – A Broward County man claims a debt collector tried to collect an alleged debt even though it had an expired license.
Aziz Abdelaziz filed a complaint on July 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against SKO Brenner American Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in May, he was sent a collection letter by the defendant to collect an alleged debt he owed. The plaintiff holds SKO Brenner American Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly attempted to collect an alleged debt from plaintiff with an expired license from the Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory and actual damages, injunction against the defendant, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Jibrael S. Hindi of The Law Offices of Jibrael S. Hindi in Fort Lauderdale and Thomas J. Patti of Thomas-John Law PA in Fort Lauderdale.
