ST. LOUIS — A consumer is suing Stanislaus Credit Control Services Inc., a collection agency, alleging abusive debt collection practices and unfair practices.
Steven Brownridge filed a complaint on Jan. 30 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Stanislaus Credit Control Services, alleging that the collection agency violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 31, 2017, his petition for bankruptcy was discharged. As a result of the defendant's unlawful actions, he allegedly was harassed, oppressed and abused; and was prevented from getting a fresh start after a bankruptcy discharge.
The plaintiff holds Stanislaus Credit Control Services responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to conduct a bankruptcy scrub to avoid collection attempts for a discharged debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks actual and statutory damages, release of the alleged debt, attorney fees, costs, and all other relief that are just and proper. He is represented by James W. Eason of The Eason Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
