Kile v. Santander Consumer USA Inc. This case, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that Santander failed to comply with the consumer’s “cease contact” letter, and continued contacting her after receiving it, which is a violation of the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The case also alleges that after a repossession, Santander sent the consumer a defective “Notice of Intent to Sell Motor Vehicle,” with the result that the consumer owed no money at all to Santander. However, Santander continued reporting the deficiency balance on the consumer’s credit reports, in violation of the Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act.
