Debt Collections Calls Won't Stop

I have a person that continues to call me at home and at work. I have been turned into my supervisor because this person keeps calling, up to 10 times a day,and won't hang up. I can't understand the person calling, they don't speak english well and I have no idea who or what they are calling about. If I tell this person do not call my office ever again, that I can not receive personal calls at work, by law, do they have to stop making these calls to me at work? I live in Pennsylvania, in case the law varies from state to state.

Also, when I have spoken to this person I have ask several times to speak to someone that speaks english clearly that I could not understand what or where they were calling from, but they never have called me with someone that I can understand.

How to Stop Debt Collection Calls at Work
by: Gerri & Mary

The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act gives you the right to tell a debt collector not to contact you at work again. Once you tell him that, his calls to you at work must stop immediately.

We recommend you use our Free Debt Collection Worksheet to keep track of the calls from this collector. If he calls you at work after you tell him not to, you can contact a consumer law attorney for advice.

You can talk with a consumer law attorney with experience in debt collection cases. Learn how to get low cost or FREE legal help with your debt collection problem here.

If you don't believe you owe the debt, you can also send the a cease and desist letter instructing the collector not to contact you again.

We also recommend you read the first chapter of Debt Collection Answers online for free so you understand your rights when dealing with this particular debt collector.
