Are creditors or debt collectors calling your family, friends and/or neighbors and leaving message requesting a return call about a debt you owe? They can’t.
Creditors and debt collectors are not allowed to call your family members, friends or neighbors and leave a message requesting a return call from you regarding your debts. That is an invasion of your privacy. It is embarrassing. And it is not allowed.
If a creditor or debt collector calls and leaves a message with a family member, friend or neighbor, gather the information surrounding the call and message:
- Who called?
- What number did they call from?
- What message was left?
If a creditor or debt collector calls your friend, family member or neighbor and leaves their name, a telephone number, reference number, and asks for a return call, that is a communication in connection with the collection of the debt and is essentially impossible to be left without violating at least one section of the FCCPA and/or the FDCPA.
If these calls occur, gather the information and call LeavenLaw. We will evaluate your case at a free consultation and, if we think it is a good case, will take it on a contingency basis. You don’t owe us anything unless we win….and then, the creditor or debt collector will pay us, not you.
