CHICAGO — A man is suing Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC, a debt collector, citing alleged misrepresentation in debt collection.
Brian Turner filed a complaint on March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against the Virginia-based collection agency alleging it tried to collect debt based on false representations of his debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he received communications from the defendant with incorrect information after he had begun bankruptcy proceedings. The plaintiff holds Portfolio Recovery Associates responsible because it allegedly sent a letter to the plaintiff attempting to collect an amount related to his credit card account.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and punitive damages, court cost and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Joseph Scott Davidson of Sulaiman Law Group Ltd. in Oak Brook.
