CHARLESTON — A consumer is suing a debt collector, citing alleged invasion of privacy.
Jason Youngblood filed a complaint Nov. 16 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Midland Credit Management Inc. alleging that it violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered undue and unreasonable harassment, oppression, abuse, annoyance and inconvenience. The plaintiff holds Midland Credit Management Inc. responsible because it allegedly made numerous harassing telephone calls and sent letters to his family members who are completely unrelated to the debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount in excess of $74,999, plus interest and costs. He is represented by Michael M. Cary of Cary Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
