KINGWOOD – A Preston County man is suing a credit reporting agency amid claims that it has erroneously reported his debts.
Juan Sanders filed a lawsuit April 26 in Preston Circuit Court against CBC Innovis Consumer Assistance, alleging violations of West Virginia’s consumer credit laws.
According to the complaint, five creditors are listed in error on Sanders’ credit report in amounts ranging from $100 to $16,456. Sanders claims he never transacted business with any of the named companies and never applied for or received credit arrangement with any of them. The suit says Sanders believes he may be a victim of identity theft and that CBC’s alleged erroneous reports have damaged his credit rating.
Sanders seeks a jury trial, an injunction barring CBC from reporting the disputed debts, and punitive and compensatory damages totaling $80,000, plus litigation costs. He is representing himself.
Judge Lawrance S. Miller Jr. is assigned to the case.
