Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on May 24, 2018, a class action complaint was filed against Citibank, N.A. “. . . seeking damages and any other available legal or equitable remedies resulting from the illegal actions of CITIBANK, N.A. . . . in negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully contacting Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47. U.S.C. § 227 et seq. (“TCPA”), thereby invading Plaintiff’s privacy and causing him to incur unwanted and unnecessary charges.”
According to the class action complaint, in or around September 2017, Citibank placed multiple calls to Plaintiff’s cellular telephone from, among other numbers, (800) 950-5114, in connection with the collection of a debt not owed by the Plaintiff. When the Plaintiff answered his cell phone, he heard a robotic voice which told him to push a button to be connected. At least once, when the Plaintiff answered Citibank’s debt collection call, he, allegedly, told a Citibank agent that Citibank was calling the wrong number, in addition to requesting that Citibank stop calling the Plaintiff. Further, the Plaintiff, allegedly, does not know the individual who Citibank says is responsible for the debt.
The TCPA class action lawsuit seeks, among other relief, statutory damages and was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California (5:18-cv-01105).
