ELKINS – A Lewis County man alleges a loan servicer attempted to collect fees in violation of state law.

Samuel Taylor filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia against Ocwen Loan Servicing LLC alleging unfair debt collection.

The suit states that the plaintiff obtained a residential home mortgage from GMAC Mortgage LLC on July 6, 2007, for the principal sum of $47,956, and the loan was transferred to the defendant.

The plaintiff alleges the defendant sent him numerous letters that violate state law and caused him annoyance, inconvenience and other losses. He alleges the defendant "threatened" to collect additional fees and costs that it is not authorized to do under state law and made false representations of the character, extent or amount of its claim against him.

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by James G. Bordas Jr. and Jason E. Causey of Bordas & Bordas PLLC in Wheeling.
