MIAMI – A Broward County woman claims a bank has repeatedly harassed her with calls trying to collect an alleged debt belonging to another person.
Raquel Pistocchi filed a complaint on July 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Bank of America Corp. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was called approximately 150 times on her cellular telephone by the defendant in an attempt to collect a purported debt from an unknown third party. The plaintiff holds Bank of America Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly contacted plaintiff's cellular telephone using an automatic dialing system several times a day despite her requests to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendant, statutory and actual damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She 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.
