Anita B. Salomonsky and H. Louis Salomonsky v. Vacation Village at Bonaventure 1; Dailey Management; and Conrad Credit Corp.
Plaintiffs say they purchased a timeshare in Fort Lauderdale in 2006 and paid a maintenance fee and real estate bill in a timely manner in 2007, 2008 and 2009. In October 2010, plaintiffs say the bill was mailed to an incorrect address and returned to the sender (Dailey). Plaintiffs say they first discovered the wrong billing on Aug. 22, 2011, when they received a notice from Conrad stating their account had been referred for collection. Plaintiffs paid the bill in full the next day, but say Conrad had already wrongfully published false statements to the credit reporting agencies, and when they applied for a home loan, they were turned down because of those statements. Plaintiffs say defendants have refused to correct their mistake with the credit reporting agencies and seek compensatory damages of $70,000.
