Absolutely, but there are steps you should take first, like documentation through letter writing and filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commision, which regulates collection agencies. Check out the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (see Web Links on the right) or search Federal Debt Collection Practices Act and you can find what your rights are and what to do to keep them intact. Good luck.
Debt collectors can contact people at their place of employment until that person request the agency/collector cease from doing so. Once the debtor has told a creditor/collector to no longer contact them at work the collector must do so. If after notice a collector continues such action they are in violation of the FDCPA and should be reported.
The tax collector counts the population. I read it in a book... and my teacher told me.

You can call a Debt Reconcilliator they helped me when I bought a trailer and then changed my mind before delivery. They sold my debt to a bank and they wouldn't stop the transaction from going through even when I had over a month before possession. My bank told me change your bank acct, if they don't get any NSF hits you will be fine, then I called the Debt people and told me to write this down. Dear Sirs/Madam I am not financially responsible for the item or bill that I did not want for your company as of a certain date. So please quit calling and harassing me or you will hear from my solititor etc. Call and find out the exact wording but there are conditions you have to meet. No NSF on the acct. You told them and the bank you didnt want the transaction to go through etc. Talk to the debt people they are great and its free. At least something in this life is FREE. Hope this works for you. This great idea is not for getting you out of your visa bill its for contracts more. Check your phone book for debt problems. Take Care.
you just tell him as you mean it
A debt collector should not be contacting you at work if they have been told not to.Statute of limitations vary by states.Debt collectos do not care if the statute has expired. You could send the collector a certified letter requet a receipt and they may stop ,as they know this can hold up in court.
You need to contact a lawyer right away. Mention to the initial company that if they do not provide proof of payment and a letter showing that the debt was settled that you will initiate a law suit against them. If they told you verbally that this is what was going to happen then you may still have to pay the amount. For more information on mortgages go to www.lowmortgageraterefinance.us
I have a civil judgment against me and the mobile home wasn't in my name. It is showing up on my credit report. How do I dispute it?
Jesus told his followers many stories. One of the is that of the tax collector and the Pharisee. The Pharisee was proud and looked down upon the tax collector as a sinner and the tax collector thought he was not worthy before God. At the end God was more pleased with the humbleness of the tax collector. The moral of the story is, if you put yourself above others, you will be put down. But if you humble yourself, you will be honored by God.
A creditor can contact a debtor at work unless these calls are prohibited by the employer or the creditor has been told not to call debtor at work. You can also contact the creditor, in writing, to request that all calls cease and all communication be done by mail. Then the creditor will be able to contact you one more time to let you know phone calls will be discontinued. The first answer was right on the money, but remember, it HAS TO BE IN WRITING for the debt collector to be forced to comply.
call them right.
