MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff Peter Koufos (" Koufos" ) has sued U.S. Bank National Association (" U.S. Bank" ), as Trustee on behalf of the holders of the CSFB Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates Series 2005-CF1 (" Trust" ), Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. (" SPS" ), Lender Processing Services, LPS Default Solutions, New Century Mortgage Corporation (" New Century" ) and Ablitt & Scofield, P.C. (collectively, " Defendants" ) asserting claims that primarily relate to U.S. Bank's attempted foreclosure of Koufos's residence.
Koufos's amended verified complaint asserts claims against U.S. Bank for injunctive relief (" Count I" ), a declaratory judgment that U.S. Bank does not have standing to enforce the promissory note related to Koufos's mortgage (" Count II" ) and a declaratory judgment that U.S. Bank does not have standing to enforce Koufos's mortgage contract (" Count III" ). D. 10 at 37-43. Koufos asserts claims against U.S. Bank and SPS alleging violations of Mass. Gen. L. c. 93A (" Count IV" ), violation of the Massachusetts Consumer Credit Cost Disclosure Act (" MCCCDA" ), Mass. Gen. L. c. 140D (" Count VII" ) and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress (" Count VIII" ). D. 10 at 43-44, 46-48. Koufos asserts claims against all Defendants for civil conspiracy (" Count V" ) and unjust enrichment (" Count VI" ). D. 10 at 44-46.
U.S. Bank and SPS have moved to dismiss all claims pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6), or to strike Koufos's amended verified complaint under Fed.R.Civ.P. 8 and 12(f) for failing " to comply with the short and plain pleading requirement."  Def. Mot., D. 14 at 1. For the reasons set forth below, U.S. Bank and SPS's joint motion to dismiss is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part and their motion to strike Koufos's complaint is DENIED.
Unless otherwise noted, the following factual allegations are from Koufos's amended verified complaint, D. 10, that the Court accepts as true for the purposes of resolving U.S. Bank and SPS's joint motion to dismiss. Ocasio-Hernandez v. Fortuño-Burset, 640 F.3d 1, 12 (1st Cir. 2011).
