ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A Florida judge has ordered a debt collection agency to not contact a woman, her family or her friends on Facebook regarding the woman's debt.
Melanie Beacham, who is suing the debt collection agency Mark One LLC in a Florida court, said last fall that the agency sent messages to her friends and family regarding an unpaid $362 car loan. Her lawyer says those messages were a violation of Florida's privacy and consumer protection laws.
On Friday, a Pinellas County judge ruled that Mark One cannot contact Beacham, her family or her friends on any social media site.
A message left with Mark One was not immediately returned on Wednesday.
