TAMPA – A Hillsborough County consumer alleges a debt collector and a debt owner continued to contact her after the alleged debt was discharged in a bankruptcy.
Yamely Guerrero filed a complaint on Jan. 19 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against OB Hospitalist Group LLC and Amerifinancial Solutions LLC citing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in March 2016, she suffered damages from being sent collection letters from the defendants despite having a discharge order from the court.
