Lawsuit: Timeshare Outfit Uses Foreclosure Threat In Attempt To Squeeze $276 In Late Fees Over "Missing Penny"
In Passaic County, New Jersey, Courthouse News Service reports:
- An attorney claims his Hawaiian timeshare company charged him $276 in late fees and threatened to foreclose on his property because he owed it a penny. Jonathan Dorman says the Kahana Beach Vacation Club subjected him to abuse and threats until he wrung from it the information that it was charging him 20 months of late fees for a penny - which a supervisor said "appeared to be the result of a computer glitch."
- He says he offered to pay the penny, but the accounts receivable rep refused to accept it, but "continued to verbally berate plaintiff," and said he "was on the phone to get plaintiff to the pay $276.77 that was past due." [...] Dorman seeks punitive damages for fraud and violations of the Fair Debt Collection Act. He filed the case pro se.
