A debt collector is harassing my neighbor, asking for my phone number. My neighbor did not give them any information and they started to scream at them. They ask my neighbors how long have they been living at that address, and why they know nothing about their neighbors. They have been calling my parents everyday, even on Sundays at 8:30am, is this legal? What can I do to stop this harassment.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
