ORLANDO – A consumer is suing a bank over allegations it called her repeatedly after requests to stop.
Patricia Adamo filed a complaint on March 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Synchrony Bank, alleging that the financial institution willfully violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act provisions.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that since November 2015, she has received approximately 150 unwanted telephone calls from the defendant in an attempt to collect a purported debt after she requested the calls to cease. The plaintiff holds Synchrony Bank responsible because the defendant allegedly intentionally abused and harassed her by calling several times in a day and on back-to-back days. The defendant allegedly also made non-emergency calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/pre-recorded or artificial voice messages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for actual, statutory, treble and punitive damages, enjoinder from further violation of the TCPA and any other relief that the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Frank H. Kerney III of Morgan & Morgan, Tampa PA in Tampa.
