PHILADELPHIA — A consumer is suing EGS Financial Care Inc., citing alleged invasion of privacy and violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Clarion Cole filed a complaint on April 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she received approximately 100 calls from the defendant in an alleged effort to collect an alleged debt. The plaintiff alleges that the calls were placed to intentionally harass her. The calls allegedly were made several times per day with an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff claims that she revoked her consent to be contacted, but the defendant allegedly continued to call her.
The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly making calls without consent with the alleged intent to annoy, abuse or harass her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for statutory and punitive damages, actual damages, treble damages and any other relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Octavio Gomez of Morgan & Morgan, Tampa PA in Tampa, Fla.
