BEAUMONT – A Missouri-based debt collector is alleged to have mailed a misleading collection letter that does not clearly identify the current creditor.
Brian Spencer, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas against Client Services Inc. alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April and May, he received collection letters from the defendant. He alleges the letters do not specify the current or original creditor despite statutes that the defendant is required to clearly state the current creditor.
The plaintiff holds Client Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly sent letters that are deceptive and misleading.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and judgment in his favor and on behalf of all others similarly situated, actual and statutory damages, costs and attorneys’ fees and such further relief as deemed just and proper.
He is represented by Joel S. Halvorsen of Halvorsen Klote in St. Louis.
