TAMPA, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – A St. Petersburg, Florida resident alleges that a debt collector harassed him with robocalls.
Richard Brobisky filed a complaint on Aug. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division against NRA Group LLC, doing business as National Recovery Agency, alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, Brobisky claims he was robocalled by defendant more than 14 times on his cellular telephone number without his express consent. He alleges on numerous occasions, defendant called several times during one day and on back-to-back days with such frequency as can reasonably be expected to harass.
The plaintiff holds NRA Group LLC Agency responsible because the defendant allegedly repeatedly placed non-emergency telephone calls to the wireless telephone number of plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system or prerecorded or artificial voice without plaintiff’s prior express consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for statutory, punitive and actual damages, costs, interest, attorney fees and any other such relief the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Geoffrey E. Parmer and William Peerce Howard of The Consumer Protection Firm in Tampa, Florida.
