BEAUMONT — A Jefferson County woman is filing a class action lawsuit against a debt collection agency, alleging harassment and intimidation.
Sally Young, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint April 3 in Beaumont Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Weinstein & Riley PS, Pallida LLC and John Does 1-25, alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Young alleges she was the victim of excessive debt collection practices by the defendant after she incurred a financial obligation to Conn Appliances Inc. She says she began to be contacted by Weinstein & Reilly on behalf of Padilla on June 15, 2018, and the defendant continued to contact the plaintiff for the payment of a debt through Feb. 21, 2019.
The suit states Weinstein & Reilly regularly used language that misled and confused Young, all of which were practices in violation of the FDCPA.
Young seeks trial by jury, statutory and actual damages, attorney fees and expenses, interest and all other just and proper relief. She is represented by attorney Yaakov Saks of Stein Saks PLLC in Hackensack, New Jersey.
