ORLANDO – A Volusia County consumer is suing a debt collector, alleging it has called him more than 30 times despite requests to stop.
David Dexter filed a complaint on March 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against CMRE Financial Services Inc. alleging that the debt collector violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Protection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he received numerous non-emergency telephone calls from the defendant without his prior express permission beginning September 2014. The plaintiff holds CMRE Financial Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly repeatedly called him even after he requested it to cease calling him and made calls using an automated telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or pre-recorded voice messages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for all damages, attorney's fees and costs and any other relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Jared M. Lee of Morgan & Morgan PA in Orlando.
