From October 2007 to February 2008, she requested payoff statements. Each time she noticed that although she was making monthly payments her principal amount rose nearly $3,000 in four months. She claims that Central represented a pre-payment pentalties in excess by law and misapplied her monthly payments. She is seeking statutory damages of $4,293.98 for each violation (a total of four), actual damages of $10,000 for each incident, cancellation of debt, attorney fees, injunctions to prevent foreclosure on her property, to stop any collection activities and to report negatively to her credit report.
