PHILADELPHIA — A consumer is suing Ability Recovery Services, a debt collector, citing alleged unlawful debt collection.
Lindsey Klobchar filed a complaint on May 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Ability Recovery Services, alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in July 2015, she began receiving calls, attempting to collect an alleged medical debt owed by her. The plaintiff holds Ability Recovery Services responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to notify her that the phone call was from a debt collector and failed to identify the nature of their business.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that defendant's actions are in violation of the FDCPA, judgment against the defendant for all damages, attorneys' fees and costs, and for such other relief as may be just and proper. She is represented by Antranig Garibian of Garibian Law Offices PC in Wilmington, Delaware.
