HOUSTON — A Harris County woman is suing an appliance company and a finance company, alleging she was charged for purchases that she did not make.
Lisa Davidson filed a complaint April 10 in Harris County District Court against Conn Appliances Inc., Conn Credit Corporation Inc., and Synchrony Financial, alleging breach of agreement and unfair and improper debt collection and violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
According to the complaint, Davidson purchased an electric fireplace and TV from Conn Appliances on Nov. 17, 2017. The total purchase, including delivery, the suit says, was $1,688.67.
The plaintiff said she contacted Conn on Dec. 16, 2017, in regard to a missing bill from the purchase, and Conn assured her that the bill would be submitted to Synchrony and the balance would be updated.
Davidson alleges she was then sent an email Jan. 2, 2018, about a purchase that had been made Jan. 1, 2018 for the total price of $1,915.98, which was not from the plaintiff's purchase. Davidson said she discovered that she had been issued statements for three separate invoices that were not from her purchases.
Davidson seeks actual damages, court costs, damages up to $70,000 and all just relief. She is represented by attorney Adam P. Criaco of Criaco & Associates in Houston.
