BEAUMONT – A Roanoke consumer alleges a debt collector harassed her with repeated calls.
Latoya Owens filed a complaint on Sept. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas against Transworld Systems Inc. alleging that the debt collection company violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between July 2015 and August 2017, she received repeated telephone calls from defendant attempting to collect an alleged debt. She alleges she was disrupted while working because of the defendant's calls.
The plaintiff holds Transworld Systems Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to make calls to her cellular telephone even after being instructed to stop calling her and made calls using an automated telephone dialing system and/or a pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory and treble damages per telephone call and such other appropriate relief. She is represented by Amy L. Bennecoff Ginsburg of Kimmel & Silverman PC in Ambler, Pennsylvania.
