BENTON – An Illinois resident is suing over alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
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.
