CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County woman is suing GE Money Bank after she claims it continued to call her after she informed them she was being represented by an attorney.

On April 7, Noretta Sue Mobley retained an attorney after she was indebted to the defendant on a credit card account, according to a complaint filed Dec. 15 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Mobley claims on April 19, 2010, she attempted to inform the defendant of her counsel, but the GE Money Bank employee told her he did not need to speak to her attorney and refused to take down the information.

The defendant attempted to contact Mobley at least 25 times after she attempted to inform them, according to the suit.

Mobley claims the telephone calls made subsequent to April 19, 2010, were made with the intent to annoy, abuse, oppress or threaten her, which violated West Virginia Code.

The defendant's attempts to collect a debt when the obligor's attorney was known to the defendant constitutes unlawful acts and practices in violation of West Virginia Code, according to the suit.

Mobley is seeking damages in an amount not to exceed $74,000. She is being represented by Robin L. Godfrey.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
