FORT MYERS – A man claims that debt collector robocalled him several hundred times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
Frederick Kutchinsky filed a complaint on May 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Fort Myers Division against World Omni Financial Corp. alleging that the financial service company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has received approximately 800 calls to his cellular telephone number from 2014 until today. The plaintiff holds World Omni Financial Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly attempted to collect a debt using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or prerecorded or artificial voice and called several times during one day and on back-to-back days, with such frequency as can reasonably be expected to harass him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, and any other such relief the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Amanda J. Allen of The Consumer Protection Firm PLLC in Tampa.
