Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Q. A debt collector call my place of work and left a message for me with the receptionist, including the name of their company, which makes it obvious what it is about. Can they do this?

A. What you are describing is probably a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act violation, assuming it is a consumer debt and the other requirements of the FDCPA are met. Consult a consumer lawyer. The statute of limitations is one year.
