Mason City man sues debt collectors for $105,000

  • Updated

MASON CITY | A Mason City man has filed a federal lawsuit seeking $105,000 from debt collectors he says repeatedly and wrongfully harassed him with robocalls.

Jerry Thomas says he received at least 205 automated phone messages from the Cedar Falls-based CBE Group, a third-party debt collector, from November 2013, to June 2014, according to a federal civil complaint filed last week. 

The calls to Thomas' cellphone sought payment for a debt incurred by someone he didn't know, the complaint states.

Thomas is seeking $105,855 in damages and a jury trial in U.S. District Court.

A spokesman for The CBE Group did not provide a comment on the lawsuit on Tuesday.
