TAMPA — A woman is suing Bank of America, a debt collector, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Susan Strieder filed a complaint on Oct. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Bank of America, alleging that the debt collector improperly contacted her numerous times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from receiving several collection calls that violated the law. The plaintiff holds Bank of America responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief this court deems just. She is represented by William Peerce Howard, Amanda J. Allen, Stefan A. Alvarez, and Brandon J. Rafool of The Consumer Protection Firm, PLLC in Tampa.
