BATON ROUGE – An East Baton Rouge consumer alleges that a consumer reporting agency and a debt collector reported false and inaccurate information.
Candace Coleman filed a complaint on April 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana, Baton Rouge Division against
Amcol Systems Inc. and Experian Information Solutions Inc.
alleging that the reporting agency and debt collector violated the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 19, she disputed information regarding the Amcol account with a dispute letter to Experian, disputing the inaccurate date of status and first reported dates. The plaintiff holds Amcol Systems Inc. and Experian Information Solutions Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly violated their duty to conduct a good faith investigation into the disputed account, failed to change the date of status and the first reported dates due to her dispute, failed to discover the misleading information and failed to follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for actual, statutory and punitive damages, reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and such other relief as may be necessary, just and proper. She is represented by Jonathan Raburn of The Raburn Law Firm LLC in Baton Rouge.
