BENTON – An Illinois resident is
suing over alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices
Jennifer Rowe filed the suit April 16
in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against
Account Liquidation Services Inc.
The defendant is a debt collector
located in Iowa, according to the suit, which says the defendant recorded a debt incurred by the
plaintiff, but the plaintiff disputed the alleged amount directly to
the defendant with a dispute letter dated Aug. 24, 2015.
On Oct. 8, 2015, the plaintiff examined
her credit report and found that the defendant had not removed the
credit amount nor marked it as “disputed by customer” despite
legal requirements to do so, according to the complaint.
For the alleged violations of the
FDCPA, the plaintiff seeks actual damages, statutory damages,
attorney fees, a declaration that the defendant's practices violated
the law, and any other relief, as well as further costs, expenses and
disbursements the court deems just and proper.
The plaintiff is represented by Yaakov
Saks of RC Law Group PLLC in Hackensack, NJ.
U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of Illinois case number 16-cv-436
