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 information about how to reach you. Debt collectors should not repeatedly call others. If you tell a debt collector not to contact your employer, the debt collector is obligated to stop. If you cannot get the debt collector to stop, call an attorney. You may call us free of charge if you are a low-wage worker.
