Debt Collector Calling Family Members? Know Your Rights.
No one likes to be contacted by debt collectors, but when they start calling family members it can become especially difficult. Knowing your rights and how to handle the situation is important in protecting yourself and your loved ones.
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors are prohibited from using any abusive, unfair or deceptive practices while attempting to collect a debt. One of these prohibited activities includes contacting third parties without permission or knowledge in order to acquire information about you. This means that if a debt collector calls your family member trying to get information about you, or harasses them for payment, they have violated your consumer rights and should be reported immediately.
