CHICAGO — A woman is suing MB Financial Bank N.A., alleging the lender violated phone harassment statutes.
Rajnita R. Gupta, of Aurora, filed a complaint on May 18 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging the financial institution made unauthorized contacts to the plaintiff's personal cellular phone regarding a debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, beginning in August 2016 and up to the present, she has been damaged from receiving collection calls. The plaintiff holds MB Financial Bank responsible because it allegedly kept calling the plaintiff using an automatic dialer despite her requests to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendant, statutory damages of $1,500, actual damages, punitive damages court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Geoff B. McCarrell and David S. Klain of Consumer Law Partners LLC in Chicago.
