FORT PIERCE – A St. Lucie consumer claims a debt collector has called her hundreds of times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
Tina Vanderburg filed a complaint on Jan. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Fort Pierce Division against Comenity LLC, doing business as Comenity Bank, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in June 2015, she told the defendant to stop calling her. The plaintiff holds Comenity LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff despite her request to stop using an automatic telephone dialing system. She alleges the defendant has called 600 times.
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. She is represented by Amanda J. Allen and William Peerce Howard of The Consumer Protection Firm PLLC in Tampa.
