OC calling work

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

Listen I have a question. If you put it in writing, can you ask an OC to cease calling you at work. Are they required by law to do so?? I know the collection laws usually only apply to CA's but Chase keeps calling my work phone which is not allowed. I am currently negotiating a settlement with them, but only with written corespondance. Just curious if they have to stop if I request it through a certified RR letter. Thanks

That would be based on state law. Some states hold OCs liable to the same language as the FDCPA holds CAs. Federally, there is nothing you can do but make the request. I would state in a letter addressed to the CEO that you are not allowed these calls at your place of business and that their actions could result in your termination - and subsequently, your inability to pay the debt.

This is what I did one day. The OC or CA called and I told them that they were calling a company and that they should cease all calls or I will file a lawsuit for harrassment. The calls stopped.
