Annoying and Harassing Phone Calls from Debt Collector
Due to loss of income, I have been unable to pay one of my credit card bills. The account has been turned over to a third party. I have been very honest with them regarding my situation. EVEN though it is well within there right, i guess, they have called for the last 5 days asking the same question over and over. I feel that they are calling with "intent to harass and annoy"..especially if i have spoken with someone within the last 12-24hours. There's enough stress right now trying to work my way out of this situation, that I dont need to continue to repeat myself with them. I have their contact information even though the number shows up as "unknown caller"
What are my rights, if any, and how should i handle the situation of annoying phone calls? If they wish to call every 2-3 days with an update,that's great, i can handle that. But every day? that is a bit overkill. Should i answer every 2 days, cotinue to talk to them, etc Your opinion is appreciated.
