TAMPA – A Pinellas County woman alleges a debt collector continued to call her after she revoked her consent to receive calls.
Patricia Nagle filed a complaint on April 14 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Wells Fargo Bank NA alleging that the debt creditor violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in November 2016, she again requested to the defendant to stop the calls regarding her alleged debt. Plaintiff claims the series of calls was done without her express permission or knowledge. Nagle claims she was harassed, embarrassed and lost time because of the calls.
The plaintiff holds Wells Fargo Bank NA responsible because the defendant allegedly placed nonemergency telephone calls to plaintiff's cellular telephone using an automatic telephone dialing system or prerecorded or artificial voice without plaintiff's prior express consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for statutory, punitive, actual damages; costs; interest; attorney fees; and any other such relief the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Amy Ferrera of Morgan and Morgan, Tampa PA in Tampa.
