Being harrassed by debt collectors
(Anderson, SC )
I bought a house out of foreclosure and now the debt collectors are calling me for the former owner's debts. How can I report multiple debt collectors who have called me at least once a week and two or three times a day, if I just pick up the phone & hang up to stop the ring, for the past year and 1/2? They are trying to collect on the prior owners of the house that I bought out of foreclosure from a bank in Oct. 2008.
They back into my address and get my phone #, will not accept that I am not the person they are looking for, that those people have not occupied this house since 2007, and I never met them.
I want a way to report them for harassment so when I return calls (if they show up on my caller I.D) I have some "teeth" to make them stop calling me.
