Can Debt Collectors Call Your Family
Debt collectors are known for their aggressive tactics when it comes to collecting on a debt. But can they legally call your family members? The answer is maybe.
Federal law prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices when collecting a debt. That means they can’t threaten you, harass you, or lie to you. But there’s no law that specifically prohibits them from calling your family members.
There are some states that have laws that protect consumers from debt collector harassment. And in some cases, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) may offer some protection.
If a debt collector is contacting you and you don’t want them to, you can send them a cease and desist letter telling them to stop contacting you. You can also tell them not to contact your family members.
