A Calif. Class Action Filing Against AUM

American Utility Management (AUM) does business all across the country.

Here is the case of Nekole Rucker v. American Utility Management it is a class action suit in the Central District of California (ie: Los Angeles) which complains that AUM violated various State and Federal laws including the Fair Debt Collection Act by posting notices on Ms Rucker's front door, visible to all passing by, falsely stating that failure to pay the alleged debt to AUM would result in the apartment complex to refuse to accept her rent and then to evict her, and also the turning over of the account to a collection agency with subsequent damage to her credit.

These tactics by AUM were allegedly done with malace and to embarass Rucker into paying the alleged debt. The request for class action would open AUM to many such claims, all to be heard together.
