JACKSONVILLE – A Charlottesville, Virginia consumer has filed suit against a Jacksonville-based debt collector over allegations of harassing phone calls.
Morgan Hultman filed a complaint on April 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division against Enhanced Recovery Co. LLC and Does 1-10, inclusive alleging that the defendant violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 6, 2016, plaintiff answered the call from the defendants and instructed them to contact her after 6 p.m. only because she will be unable to take any calls prior that time because of work. Despite her request, she claims she still receives calls before 6 p.m. from the defendants attempting to collect payment on her alleged debt.
The plaintiff holds Enhanced Recovery Co. LLC and Does 1-10, inclusive responsible because the defendants allegedly contacted plaintiff at a place and during a time known to be inconvenient for the plaintiff and called repeatedly and engaged the plaintiff in telephone conversations with the intent to annoy and harass.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for actual damages, statutory damages of $1,000, costs of litigation, punitive damages, and such other and further relief as may be just and proper. She is represented by Stan Michael Maslona of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
