BATON ROUGE – A consumer is suing a debt collector and reporting agency claiming false and inaccurate reporting.
Nedra Lebeuf filed a complaint on May 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana against Portfolio Recovery Associates and Experian Information Solutions Inc. alleging that they allegedly violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she disputed inaccurate information on her credit report through her attorney with a dispute letter to Experian dated March 15. She claims the inaccurate information on her credit report is continuing to damage her credit rating. As a result, she claims she has suffered great physical, emotional and mental pain and anguish. The plaintiff holds Portfolio Recovery Associates and Experian Information Solutions Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide a good faith investigation into the disputed account and failed to correct, modify or delete the disputed information.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for actual damages, punitive damages, costs of this action together with reasonable attorney’s fees and such other and further relief as may be necessary, just and proper. She is represented by Jonathan Raburn of The Raburn Law Firm LLC in Baton Rouge.
