Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Progressive Management Systems Over Alleged Debt Collection Calls in Violation of The Telephone Consumer Protection Act
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on March 23, 2020, a class action lawsuit was filed against Progressive Management Systems in United States District Court, Central District of California, for, allegedly, “negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully contacting Plaintiff on Plaintiff’s cellular telephone, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.”
According to the complaint, the Plaintiff incurred a debt to a third party sometime before December 4, 2017. The Plaintiff “fell behind” on the debt payments, and the debt was “placed, assigned, or otherwise transferred to [Progressive Management Systems] for collection purposes.” The Plaintiff, according to the complaint, filed for bankruptcy, and “[o]n or around March 7, 2018, Plaintiff’s [d]ebts [were] discharged pursuant to a court order that was mailed to Defendant by the bankruptcy court,” and “following March 7, 2018, Plaintiff had no account and existing debt with [Progressive Management Systems].”
The complaint alleges that Progressive Management Systems “placed at least three calls to Plaintiff’s cellular telephone, using a pre-recorded message” from telephone number (866) 767-2296 in 2019. The complaint alleges that the calls to Plaintiff “were not in connection with any existing debt” and “were unsolicited and not in response to an inquiry from Plaintiff.”
