FCR files suit against California bank for back paymentsA Roseburg-based call center business is suing a California bank for more than $31,000 for back payments the call center claims it is owed.
First Call Resolution, or FCR, filed a complaint in Circuit Court earlier this month against Aspiration, Inc., an online-only bank based in Marina del Rey, California. The suit asks for $31,566 from Aspiration, plus attorney’s fees and other costs, for work FCR did but was not paid for.
According to the complaint, FCR entered into a contract with Aspiration in March 2018 to perform call center services. Aspiration paid FCR for work performed until May 24, 2019, when the payments reportedly stopped. Subsequent invoices totaling $31,566 have gone unpaid, the complaint states.
FCR was founded in Roseburg in 2005 and now has more than 2,000 employees in eight locations in Oregon and Montana.
Aspiration opened for business in February 2015 and has raised over $100 million in funding, according to news reports. The bank offers interest-bearing checking accounts as well as investment products.
