A Florida couple receiving “unrelenting” phone calls from Bank of America was awarded more than $1 million from a federal judge.
Check it out:
Nelson and Joyce Coniglio received 700 collection calls from the bank over a four year period, the New York Post reports.
“They treated us very badly,” Nelson told the Post. “No two ways about it.”
The couple said the bank badgered them after they had gotten behind on their house payments. Even after the Coniglios hired an attorney, the calls kept coming in.
The two sued under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and was awarded the large sum. The damages were tripled from the bank’s $500 per call.
