No matter what the circumstances entail, it is always unlawful for a creditor to engage in any behaviors that could be classified as harassment. The Federal Trade Commission established the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to govern the actions of creditors and debt collection agencies throughout the U.S. One of the act’s stipulations is that no harassment will be permitted under any circumstances. This includes calling at unreasonable hours, coming to a debtor’s place of work or, as in your case, bombarding the friends and family members of a debtor. With the help of a legal professional in the field of bankruptcy law, you can actively put an end to the debt collection practices of harassment that are currently plaguing you as well as your friends and family.
