FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — A man is suing Stellar Recovery Inc., a Florida corporation, citing alleged violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Francois Paul filed a complaint on Nov. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Stellar Recovery Inc., alleging that the Florida corporation violated the FDCPA through abusive, deceptive and unfair debt collection practices.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he received a barrage of calls from the defendant seeking to collect cable services debt from him, and that these calls were mostly made by using an automatic telephone dialing system and an automated, machine-operated voice message, despite not being provided with a prior express consent. As a result, the plaintiff claims he suffered invasion of privacy, disturbance of peace and maximum psychological stress. The plaintiff holds Stellar Recovery Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly called the plaintiff with a frequency meant to abuse or harass, contacted the plaintiff without prior express consent and unlawfully utilized an automatic dialer and automated voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, an order enjoining the defendant from contacting the plaintiff, and further relief as justice may require. He is represented by George N. Andrews of Loan Lawyers LLC in Fort Lauderdale.
