PHILADELPHIA — A consumer is suing Ability Recovery Services LLC and Does 1-10 for allegedly using abusive debt collection practices.
Nicole Reynolds filed a complaint on April 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants contacted her in December 2017 to collect an alleged debt. Due to the defendants' allegedly unlawful collection tactics, the plaintiff claims that she suffered a great deal of anxiety, anger, humiliation, embarrassment and emotional distress. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly threatening to repossess her vehicle if the debt was not immediately paid.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory, treble and punitive damages; litigation costs and expenses; and all further relief that is just and proper. She is represented by Jody B. Burton of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Conn.
