BECKLEY -- A Raleigh County family is suing over claims several banks used unlawful debt collection means.
Jerryd and Amanda Clyburn filed a lawsuit Feb. 7 in Raleigh Circuit Court against City National Bank, Elan Financial Services and U.S. Bank, NA, citing violations of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the defendants placed calls to the plaintiffs' home and used other unlawful debt collection means after the plaintiffs' attorney name had been supplied, intentionally inflicting emotional distress and constituting invasion of privacy.
The defendants are accused of violating West Virginia Computer Crime and Abuse Act and the West Virginia Telephone Harassment Statute.
The Clyburns are seeking no more than $75,000 in damages. They are being represented in the case by attorney Paul W. Roop II.
