My firm has filed a federal lawsuit against Creditors Financial Group LLC for violations of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the California Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The lawsuit has been filed in the Northern District of California in the Oakland/Alameda district.
The lawsuit alleges that Creditors Financial Group's employees would frequently telephone my client, even after my client sent them a cease communication letter exercising his right to prevent the calls under the FDCPA. The lawsuit alleges the phone calls would sometimes occur at a rate of 20 per day, and at odd hours such as 6:45 a.m. on a Sunday. The lawsuit also alleges that the employees would yell, scream, use profane language, and berate my client, and threaten that my client would go to jail if he did not pay.
The lawsuit also alleges that Creditors Financial Group telephoned my client's sister up to 20 times in one day, insisting that my client's sister was actually his wife and making comments about my client's sexual orientation. They again threatened to her that my client would be going to jail.
The lawsuit also alleges that Creditors Financial Group spoke with my client's partner, screaming at him, berating him, harassing him, using extremely profane language, and making extremely profane remarks about my client's sexual orientation.
The lawsuit seeks at least $100,000.00 in actual damages plus statutory damages, attorney fees, and costs.
