MIAMI – A Hollywood consumer
alleges that a debt collector sent a collection letter to her containing inaccurate information regarding an alleged debt.
Irina Muskina filed a complaint on Oct. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against NCSPLUS 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, the defendant sent her a letter stating that any information reported about her would remain on file with a credit bureau for up to seven years. She claims this is misleading because the account is in default and cannot be reported.
The plaintiff holds NCSPLUS Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly threatened plaintiff in order to coerce plaintiff into paying her debt.
The plaintiff seeks actual damages, statutory damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Michael Jay Ringelheim of RC Law Group PLLC in Hackensack, New Jersey.
