Can a debt collector call my family?

what if a debt collector is calling my employer or family? A debt collector should not be discussing your debt with anyone else. A debt collector can contact others only to seek info on how to reach you.

Debt collectors may contact your family in order to ask about information on how to reach you.  Debt collectors may not discuss your debt with anyone else or contact them repeatedly.  Also, debt collectors may not call your work if you've have told them to stop. If the debt collector continues to call your employer or your family, contact us.

You may read more about what debt collectors may and may not do on our debt collection page.
