HOUSTON — A consumer is suing Robinson, Adamson & Associates, debt collector, citing alleged abusive debt collection practices.
Michael Welch filed a complaint on Oct. 27, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against the defendants alleging that they violated the the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has suffered damages for being charged post-judgment interest of $987.47 instead of $80.62 and his wages were garnished in the amount of $1,656.75. The plaintiff holds Robinson, Adamson & Associates responsible because the defendants allegedly filed a sworn garnishment affidavit in the amount of $1,656.75, failed to disclose that the debt collector is attempting to collect a debt and took no less than $904.83 more than the correct garnishment amount.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award for statutory damages in the amount of $1,000 plus actual damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys' fees and costs and such other and further relief. He is represented by Russell S. Thompson IV and Joseph Panvini of Thompson Consumer Law Group PLLC in Mesa, Arizona.
