Collector is calling my business partner

by Carol
(Arlington, MA)

Does a collector, Nationwide Credit, have any right to call my business partner to try to reach me? This is for an American Express business card debt, approx. $5000, that I opened when I was freelancing. I'm now partner in a company, not related to my old freelance business. The partner being called works at home and is receiving calls about me. I live in Massachusetts. Calls have happened several times over the last few months. I talked with NCO months ago and asked them (verbally) to not call me at work, which is a different number than the the one they've been using at my partner's home. Do I need to remind them that my business is not related to the American Express business card I had and was not used for purchases in my current business?

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits the action you've described, but unfortunately it does not apply to business debts. We would encourage you to contact a consumer law attorney to find out whether there are other laws that may apply to your situation.
