MIAMI – A Broward County consumer claims a Missouri debt collector mailed her a misleading letter to collect an alleged debt.
Jennipher Perez filed a complaint on Oct. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Client Services Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in August, she received a collection letter for an alleged debt she owed from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Client Service, Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to inform plaintiff that the debt she owed was time barred and the statute of limitations would be revived should a partial payment be made.
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.
