A proposed class action claims Capio Partners, LLC violated federal debt collection and telemarketing laws by using an automatic phone dialing system to place non-emergency calls to consumers in attempts to collect on alleged debts. Filed in Florida, the complaint says the defendant, “the largest healthcare asset manager in the country,” made numerous calls to the plaintiff’s cell phone in an effort to collect on a debt despite being informed by the man that he was not the intended recipient of the calls.
“On each occasion that [the defendant] greeted [the plaintiff], he informed [the defendant] that he was not the intended recipient of the call—an individual named Dale, from whom the defendant sought to collect a debt—and that [the defendant] should stop placing calls to his cellular telephone number,” the case says. “[The plaintiff] does not know, and has no known connection to, the intended recipient of the calls that [the defendant] placed to his cellular telephone number.”
