FAYETTEVILLE — A consumer is suing ADT LLC, d/b/a ADT Security Services, alleging fraudulent and misleading misrepresentation in debt collection.
Carol J. Boyd filed a complaint on June 29 in Fayette Circuit Court against the defendant, alleging that the debt collector violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant's actions caused her to suffer inconvenience, annoyance, harassment, indignation, anxiety and emotional distress. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible because it allegedly attempted to collect a debt by coercion, engaged in unreasonable, oppressive and abusive conduct and used unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, punitive and statutory damages, attorneys' fees, costs and expenses and such other relief as the court deems proper. She is represented by Ralph C. Young, Christopher B. Frost, Steven R. Broadwater and Jed R. Nolan of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard PLLC in Fayetteville.
