debt collector calling for a relative

A debt collector is calling me looking for a relative. Am I required to give them contact information for the relative?

No, you aren't required to give them information about your relative. And if they are revealing information about the debt to you, they may be breaking the law. Tell them you can't help them, ask them not to contact you again, and then let your relative know what's going on. Send the person who does owe the debt here to find out what to do!
