ORLANDO – An Apopka man alleges he was harassed by a debt collector through its phone calls.
Oscar Palau filed a complaint on Sept. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Harley-Davidson Financial Services Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in December 2015, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Harley-Davidson Financial Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact plaintiff and continued to call him despite his request to contact him through mail instead.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Shaughn C. Hill of Morgan & Morgan Tampa, PA in Tampa.
