CHARLESTON — A consumer is suing a debt collector, citing alleged negligence and unlawful publication of debt.
Stephen Sites filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC alleging that it violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Sites alleges that he suffered undue and unreasonable harassment, oppression, abuse, annoyance and inconvenience.
