OCALA — A woman is suing Citibank, N.A., a debt collector, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Sandra Laurentano filed a complaint on Oct. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Ocala Division against Citibank, N.A., claiming that the debt collector contacted plaintiff several times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from receiving numerous improper collection calls from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Citibank, N.A. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, all legal fees and interest and any other relief the court deems just. She is represented by Stefan A. Alvarez and William Peerce Howard of The Consumer Protection Firm, PLLC in Tampa.
