HOUSTON – A consumer alleges misleading language used in a debt collection letter caused her a risk of harm.
Juletta Isles, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on May 31 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Aargon Collection Agency alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 8, 2017, she received a letter from the defendant attempting to collect an alleged debt. She alleges the wording in the letter would make the least sophisticated consumer believe they needed to pay a debt sooner or risk owing a higher amount due to interest.
The plaintiff holds Aargon Collection Agency responsible because the defendant allegedly used false and misleading means to collect an alleged debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, statutory damages, costs, attorneys’ fees and expenses, prejudgment interest and post-judgment interest and such other and further relief as this court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Yitzchak Zelman of Marcus Zelman LLC in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
