Donna Stealey filed a complaint on March 13 in the
18th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Brevard County

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that since 2014, she has received numerous calls from the defendant in its attempt to collect a debt from the previous owner of her cellphone number.
