I finally found out the answer to a question I asked a while back. I was worried that debt collectors would try to contact my at work. Then I found out that if you tell the debt collector you are not allowed to get calls at your work, then legally they cannot call you there. Fair debt collection Practices Act is where you find this piece of information. So if you want to keep a debt collector from calling you at work, make sure you tell them you are not allowed to be called there.
