ST. LOUIS — A consumer is suing a debt collector, citing alleged unconscionable collection practices.
Kim P. Nicholson filed a complaint on May 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against Consumer Collection Management Inc. and Does 1-4, alleging that they violated the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages, including loss of time, shame, humiliation, anger, anxiety, emotional distress, fear and attorneys’ fees paid for advice regarding this situation. The plaintiff holds Consumer Collection Management Inc. and Does 1-4 responsible because the defendants allegedly falsely set forth a deadline that was not real, falsely misrepresented the legal status of the debt and threatened her to take legal action.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000, actual damages, plus interest, attorneys’ fees and all other relief as the Court deems just and proper. She is represented by Nathan D. Sturycz of Main Street Law in Edwardsville, Illinois.
