ST. LOUIS — A consumer is suing Consumer Collection Management Inc., a debt collector, alleging unfair debt collection practices.
Andrew Simpson filed a complaint on Feb. 28 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 2017 he began receiving dunning letters and calls from the defendant attempting to collect a consumer debt. As a result of the defendant's conduct, he suffered stress, anxiety and the potential suspension of his Medicare benefits.
The plaintiff holds Consumer Collection Management responsible because the defendant attempted to collect an amount that he allegedly does not owe and failed to inform him that a portion of the debt was barred by the statute of limitations.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks statutory damages, attorney's fees, costs and expenses, and all other relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by James W. Eason of The Eason Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
