TAMPA – A Pasco County resident claims a debt collector violated regulations with a letter it sent her.
Robin A. Jacksonhannah filed a complaint on April 5 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau Inc., doing business as American Medical Collection Agency, alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 24, 2016, she received a collection letter from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly threatened to take actions that would negatively impact plaintiff’s credit record within the 30-day validation period and did not intend to take and denied plaintiff's right to receive pertinent information related to her rights in a clear and non-confusing fashion.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant; statutory, punitive and actual damages; attorney's fees; court costs; and other relief the court may deem just. She is represented by Benjamin W. Raslavich of Kuhn Raslavich PA in Tampa.
