Hunter Warfield, is a debt collector with its offices located at: 4620 Woodland Corporate Blvd., Tampa, FL 33614. It focuses on collection of landlord-tenant disputes.
During calendar 2017, seven lawsuits were filed against Hunter Warfield in Florida federal court for violations of consumer protection laws.
In Sarah Smith v. Hunter Warfield, Case No. 8:17-cv-2743, the consumer alleged that the plaintiff, Smith, entered into a lease for an apartment located in St. Petersburg, Florida and that around March of 2017, due to the lessor’s failure to uphold its end of the Lease, Ms. Smith elected to terminate the Lease prior to the Lease expiring. As a result of Ms. Smith’s termination of the Lease prior to the Lease expiring, the lessor claimed that Ms. Smith owed an alleged debt for various move-out charges. The lessor thereafter assigned the alleged debt to Defendant, Hunter Warfield, for the purpose of collecting the alleged debt. Around August 29, 2017, Defendant, Hunter Warfield, called Ms. Smith and sent her a letter in an attempt to collect the alleged debt. Ms. Smith answered Hunter Warfield’s call and demanded validation of the debt and informed Defendant that the alleged debt was disputed. Around September 25, 2017, Defendant, Hunter Warfield, called Ms. Smith’s sister and brother in-law’s house phone number, 773-***4624, in attempts to collect Ms. Smith’s alleged debt. However, Defendant, Hunter Warfield did not inform Ms. Smith’s sister and brother-in-law that the alleged debt was disputed. Defendant, Hunter Warfield, called Ms. Smith’s sister and brother-in-law’s House Phone from phone number 813-283-4625. Ms. Smith never gave her prior consent directly to Hunter Warfield to communicate with her sister and brother-in-law in connection with the collection of the alleged debt. Hunter Warfield also knew that Ms. Smith’s sister and brother-in-law did not have a legitimate business need for the information. Hunter Warfield failed to convey to the consumer the “name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed.”
In Scriven v. Hunter Warfield, a case filed in Orlando, FL, the employee for Hunter Warfield threatened the consumer by stating that she could "go to jail" if she did not pay the debt.
