Laws Regarding Original Creditors

I have asked this question before but have never really received or found an answer on a state or federal level. With with the horror stories I have been reading about Cash Call and their tactics I find it hard to believe that there are no laws to protect people against the wrath of original lenders. I emailed my State Attorney General this question. (Florida) I was of course ignored as usual. As the fdcpa applys only to third party collectors it strikes me as odd that an original creditor should be allowed to make threats, speak to third parties, call you at work when told not to and even tell your children that you are a bad person. This is the u.s. and it would seem to me their must be a law somewhere. Any help would be beneficial for so many who are dealing with Cash Call especially!

Frog - I made the link inactive. We are not supposed to link to companies, that that site is actually like a debt settlement company or something like that. They just also happen to have links to all the state's debt collection laws.

I have searched on the net and came up with nothing. The laws are buried so deep in volumes of legalese that searching almost requires an attorney. There should be a way to weed through state laws. A help desk or something. If you AG won't respond like mine you are lost.

I just found this pertaining to Florida:

Quote:
Every state has laws that say if a collections agency is collecting a debt, they are legally obligated to stop contacting a consumer if the consumer sends a Cease and Desist letter and/or a Power of Attorney notifying the collection agency that a third party is responsible for handling all communications with the creditor. Florida law takes it a step farther and not only limits harassment from collection agencies, but also from the original creditor as well. In most states, when a consumer falls behind on their payments and the debt is still being collected by the original creditor (the bank that originally lent you the money or the hospital that serviced you, for example), then the creditor is reserved the right to call the debtor on a daily basis in order to collect whatever is owed.
