Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on February 11, 2020, a class action lawsuit was filed in United States District Court, Eastern District of California, against Continental Credit Control, Inc. and other defendants, as of yet unknown, for, among other things, the alleged “illegal actions of [Continental Credit Control] in negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully contacting Plaintiff [on] Plaintiff’s telephone,” in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”).
According to the complaint, the Plaintiff was contacted by Continental Credit Control from telephone number (805) 324-8895 beginning in or about November 2019 to collect an alleged debt Plaintiff owed. The Plaintiff, according to the complaint, received numerous calls from Continental Credit Control from approximately November 2019 through December 2019. Allegedly, the Defendant was told by the Plaintiff to stop calling her; however, Continental Credit Control continued to call Plaintiff who did not owe the debt in question.
Besides seeking damages for TCPA violations, the class action lawsuit also seeks damages as an individual consumer for violations of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
