Can a Debt Collector Contact My First Sergeant?
by: Debtcollectionanswers.com

You are protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which says that a debt collector can communicate with your employer ONLY to try to find out how to contact you and even then, the collector cannot say why he wants to reach you.

Therefore, if the debt collector told your First Sergeant about the debts you owe, the collector has broken the law and you may want to schedule an appointment with a consumer law attorney in your area who helps people resolve their debt collection problems.
