RIPLEY — A consumer is suing a Georgia collection agency, citing alleged illegal debt collection practices.
Candy Jo Angel filed a complaint in Jackson Circuit Court against Capital Recovery Corporation alleging that it violated the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Angel alleges that as a natural consequence of the defendant's unlawful actions, she was caused to suffer harassment, oppression, abuse, aggravation, annoyance and inconvenience. She holds Capital Recovery Corporation responsible because it allegedly failed to comply with the licensure, residence and bond requirements of the Collection Agency Act while attempting to collect her alleged debt and threatened to report her nonpayment of her uncollected debt to credit reporting agencies.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and statutory damages with interest, costs, attorney's fees and all other just and equitable relief. She is represented by Troy N. Giatras and Phillip A. Childs of The Giatras Law Firm in Charleston.
