HOUSTON — A California man is suing a Katy debt collection agency, alleging he was harassed over an alleged debt.

Samuel Brown of Inglewood, California filed a complaint June 19 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Universal Fidelity LP, alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and violation of the Texas Debt Collection Practices Act.

According to the complaint, Brown is the owner and user of a certain phone number. The suit states the plaintiff was approved for an American Express credit card, and about $2,500 in personal purchases were made in Brown's name. 

The plaintiff alleges he began to receive demands from Universal Fidelity after he defaulted on his loan. The plaintiff said he asked that the defendant stop calling, but Universal Fidelity made at least 25 calls to Brown's phone, causing him to suffer loss of battery charge, higher costs and invasion of privacy,

Brown seeks trial by jury, attorney fees, damages up to $1,000, treble damages of $1,500, court costs, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by attorney John S. Davidson of Sulaiman Law Group Ltd. in Lombard, Illinois.
