By Philip Gonzales | Jun 7, 2018


FAYETTEVILLE — A debtor is suing Wells Fargo Dealer Services Inc., citing alleged invasion of privacy.

Randall Brown filed a complaint May 1 in Fayette Circuit Court, alleging that the financial service company violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.

According to the complaint, after Brown fell behind on an alleged debt, the defendant began collection activities. As a result, the plaintiff said he has been annoyed, inconvenienced, harassed, upset, angered and was caused indignation and distress.

The plaintiff claims Wells Fargo is responsible because it allegedly attempted to collect by coercion by calling Brown's phone repeatedly or continuously at unusual times known to be inconvenient.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks litigation costs and legal expenses and such other relief deemed proper. He is represented by Christopher B. Frost, Ralph C. Young and Steven R. Broadwater of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard PLLC in Fayetteville.
