MIAMI – A Broward County resident alleges that a Texas-based debt collector sent collection letters to her containing several misrepresentations regarding her debt.
Ana Pimentel Vasquez filed a complaint on Oct. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Credit Protection Association LP alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, between 2015 and 2016, the defendant mailed the plaintiff collection letters that did not clearly indicate the amount of her alleged debt. The plaintiff holds Credit Protection Association LP responsible because the defendant allegedly violated the FDCPA by sending a collection letter to the plaintiff that did not clearly identify the creditor to whom the plaintiff's alleged debt is owed and the amount due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory and actual damages, injunction against the defendant, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Jibrael S. Hindi of The Law Offices of Jibrael S. Hindi in Fort Lauderdale and Thomas J. Patti of Thomas-John Law PA in Fort Lauderdale.
