TAMPA – A Pinellas County consumer claims a creditor harassed her over an alleged debt with its calls.
Alice F. Hall filed a complaint on March 29 in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Bluestem Brands Inc., doing business as Fingerhut, alleging that the creditor violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant contacted her in an attempt to collect on an alleged debt. The plaintiff holds Bluestem Brands Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to make calls despite plaintiff's explicit demand to stop the improper calls and unlawfully utilized an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, statutory damages, injunctive relief, and any other relief the court deems just. She is represented by Christopher W. Boss of Boss Law in St. Petersburg.
