Collectors Calling Work, Relatives, Friends

The Credit Doctor

Updated on:

The answer to your question about whether collectors can call you at work, your relatives, friends, or neighbors is a very simple yes. HOWEVER, this does not mean they have carte blanche in ignoring the FDCPA calling rules.

Some Obvious Things Collectors Can’t Do

  • Harassment of any kind
  • Repeated calls
  • Swearing at you or others
  • Disclosing your debt to others
  • Causing you harm such as losing your job
  • Threats to you or others

You have two choices

  1. Pay Your Bills
  2. Dispute the debt (start with sending a debt validation request)
