ORLANDO – An Orlando resident claims a debt collector harassed her with unwanted calls.
Tiffany Hall filed a complaint on Oct. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Receivables Performance Management LLC alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in July, the defendant called her in an attempt to collect an alleged debt. The suit states that the calls would begin with an agent asking her name and then the agent would tell her to hold for a live representative, but no live agent would ever be connected to her.
The plaintiff holds Receivables Performance Management LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly forced plaintiff to wait on the line for an inordinate amount of time without revealing the purpose of the call and contacted plaintiff several times despite revocation of any express consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, damages, costs, attorney's fees and other relief as the court deems proper. She is represented by Sharina T. Romano of Hyslip & Taylor LLC LPA in Chicago.
