PINEVILLE – A Corinne couple alleges a debt collector has harassed them with collection calls.
Luther C. Tilley and Norma J. Tilley filed a complaint in Wyoming Circuit Court against National Auto Division alleging that the debt collector violated the West Virginia Consumer Crime and Abuse Act and common law invasion of privacy.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that after they become in arrears upon an alleged debt, the defendant called them repeatedly at unusual times or times known to be inconvenient with the intent to annoy, abuse or oppress them. They also allege that they instructed the defendant to stop calling them but the calls continued.
The plaintiffs seek all damages, litigation costs, attorney's fees and expenses and any further relief as the court may deem meet and proper. They are represented by Ralph C. Young, Christopher B. Frost and Steven R. Broadwater of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard PLLC in Fayetteville.
