HOUSTON – An Arizona consumer alleges a debt collector has intruded on her privacy with its calls.
Diana Moody filed a complaint on Nov. 17 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Alltran Financial LP alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in November 2016, she began receiving calls on her cellular phone from defendant in connection with the collection of an alleged debt. She alleges the defendant continued to call after she asked for the calls to stop and that the defendant also contacted her husband and grandson regarding the alleged debt.
The plaintiff holds Alltran Financial LP responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to make calls even after her request to stop calling her and made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff seeks actual and statutory damages, attorney’s fees, costs and such other legal and equitable relief. She is represented by Jeffrey S. Hyslip of Hyslip & Taylor LLC LPA in Chicago.
