BECKLEY -- A West Virginia woman is suing a telemarketer, claiming harassment.

Diana Mey filed a class action complaint Feb. 19 on behalf of herself and all other people that have experienced the same harassment in Raleigh Circuit Court against North American Bancard LLC, citing violations of Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Mey claims even though her cell phone number is listed on the national Do Not Call Registry, the defendant called Mey on Jan. 21. The suit claims the defendant attempted to have Mey sign up for their credit card processing service. According to the claim, the defendants have received multiple complaints since October about illegal telemarketing calls and have failed to take the steps to fix this issue.

Mey is requesting the defendant be restrained from future telemarketing violations, the defendant be restrained from destroying or altering records needed for the case, damages for Mey and all class members be awarded damages of $500 for each negligent violation and $1,500 for each known violation.

She is being represented by Charleston attorneys John W. Barrett and Jonathan Marshall of Bailey and Glasser LLC, Boston attorneys Edward A. Broderick and Anthony Paronich of Broderick Law P.C. and Massachusetts attorney Matthew P. McCue of The Law Office of Matthew P. McCue.
