MIAMI – A Hollywood woman alleges that the statute of limitations on an alleged debt has experienced and that a debt collector unlawfully threatened to take legal action.
Samantha Edwards filed a complaint on March 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Kinum Inc. alleging that the debt collector violated Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 30, 2016, she was caused to suffer damages from receiving a call from the defendant threatening plaintiff to settle an alleged debt or face legal action.
