ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis woman is suing Douglas, Chancellor, Meyers & Associates, LLC, citing alleged violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Denise Rodgers filed a complaint on Jan. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against the St. Charles company, alleging that the debt collector violated FDCPA through abusive, deceptive and unfair debt collection practices.
According to the complaint, Rodgers alleges that in September she suffered a decrease in her credit standing, which was caused by improper debt collection practices. In the complaint, Rodgers says that Douglas, Chancellor, Meyers & Associates reported an alleged consumer debt, despite having received a letter from her on February 2, 2016, disputing the debt. Rodgers holds Douglas, Chancellor, Meyers & Associates responsible because it allegedly failed to report that her alleged debt is disputed and caused her to have a negative rating on her credit report.
Rodgers requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor, actual and statutory damages, attorney's fees and costs, declaratory relief, disbursements, penalties and further relief as the court may deem just. She is represented by Yaakov Saks of RC Law Group, PLLC in Hackensack, New Jersey.
