HARRISBURG – A Missouri man alleges inaccurate information is listed on his credit report.
Timothy Jones filed a complaint on Oct. 3, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against NRA Group LLC, doing business as National Recovery Agency, and Equifax Information Services LLC citing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants have been reporting inaccurate and derogatory statements to third parties regarding his credit history since May 2016. He alleges this information includes an account with NRA that was discharged in a bankruptcy.
The plaintiff alleges he has disputed this information with Equifax but Equifax has never contacted him to follow up or verify the information.
The plaintiff holds NRA Group LLC and Equifax Information Services LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly falsely represented the amount, character or legal status of a debt and failed to comply with the requirements imposed on a consumer reporting agency.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, statutory damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Mark Mailman and Alexis I. Lehmann of Francis & Mailman PC in Philadelphia.
