SHERMAN – A Wylie consumer alleges a debt collector used unlawful tactics in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
Philip Chirogene filed a complaint on Sept. 19 in the Sherman District of the Eastern District of Texas against Fowler, Landen & Rose alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendant allegedly made up to eight collection calls per day in a rapid succession, failed to disclose that the communications were from a debt collector, used abusive and profane language and threatened him to file legal action without intending to do so.
The plaintiff holds Fowler, Landen & Rose responsible because the defendant's alleged conduct is in violation of the FDCPA.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000, actual damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other relief that are just and proper. He is represented by Jenny DeFrancisco of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
