HOUSTON — A Houston woman is suing Asset Maximization Group, Inc., citing alleged unconscionable collection practices.
Holly Heflin filed a complaint on Jan. 17 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Asset Maximization Group, alleging the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
According to the complaint, Heflin alleges that in May 2016, she allegedly incurred a financial obligation, and the defendant attempted to collect, leaving a voicemail message on her father's phone disclosing the debt. As a result, she suffered a great deal of stress and humiliation. Heflin holds Asset Maximization Group responsible because the company allegedly violated FDCPA when it communicated with her father.
Heflin requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000 plus costs of litigation and such other further relief as may be just and proper. She is represented by Jenny DeFrancisco of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
