Debt collector sued for hounding sick child

February 25, 2009

The plaintiffs gave their sick child a cell phone so the child could contact them as necessary.  The defendant, Santander Consumer USA, is a debt collecting agency that has called the child’s cell phone more than 150 times since September 2008.  

In October, the plaintiff called the defendant company to explain to them that their child is not the person who owes the debt.  A couple weeks later the plaintiffs’ attorney followed up with a letter sent to the defendants but despite that, the defendants continue to call the child’s cell phone up to fifty times a month.  The lawsuit was filed in Oregon Federal Court.
