Can a creditor legally call and harrass you at your workplace?

It is legal for creditors to call and harrass you at your work place?

Answer #1

It is not legal for a creditor to call you at work if you tell them not too. Further, they are not allowed to say anything about you owing a debt. If they reveal any information other than verifying your work status at that company, they are in violation of federal statutes on fair debt collection. Further, if you get an attorney, creditors are no longer able to contact you- ALL CORRESPONDENCE HAS TO BE THROUGH YOUR ATTORNEY- if they call or nail you directly once they are sent notice that you have legal representation, they are again in violation of federal law. My recommendation- & the best advice by far- contact an attorney! Good luck!

Answer #2

sue them
