MIAMI – A Broward County consumer claims a debt collector did not identify itself in voicemails or state it was a debt collector.
Chavannes Ade filed a complaint on Dec. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against D & A Services LLC alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, he suffered damages from receiving voice mail messages from the defendant in its attempt to collect an alleged debt. The plaintiff holds D & A Services LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call the plaintiff and failed to disclose the nature of the calls in the voicemails.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, permanent injunction against the defendant, and any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Donald A. Yarbrough in Fort Lauderdale.
