A woman claims a company did not provide her with adequate notice before it began taking money from her paycheck.
Rebecca Sue Streubel filed a lawsuit March 6 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Ardmore Finance Corporation.
According to the complaint, the defendant began taking wages from her paychecks on Feb. 6 under a wage assignment she had signed. The wage assignment form enables a creditor to a portion of a person’s wages if that person is delinquent by more than 40 days, according to the complaint. However, Streubel claims she was not given the required 20-day notice prior to wages being taken from her paycheck.
As a result of Ardmore’s actions, Streubel has suffered actual damages and statutory damages of $500, the complaint says.
Streubel is seeking actual damages of more than $50,000, plus attorneys’ fees and other relief the court deems just. She will be represented by Shari L. Murphy of The Law Offices of Shari L. Murphy.Madison County Circuit Court case number 14-L-358.
