Hi, I'm looking for some information on debt collection practices, whats legal and whats not. For over a year I have been harrassed by many different companies (most won't give me their information, trust me I've asked) for old debts I no longer owe or debts I am in the process of working out. These people have called me at work, home and now I've really got trouble. Last month I quit my job for personal reasons( I left on good terms I gave a months notice), I get a phone call from my mom saying that a guy had called her telling her that I had been fired from my job and that we had been dating and I owed him thousands of dollars, we had a date set up but I never showed and he wondered what happened to me. This put a huge red flag up because this person clearly called my old place of employment and found I was no longer there and decided to find me through relatives. I also found out my parents have been recieving lots of these types of calls and now think I've been into illegal activity and owe alot of people money that I do not. How do I make this stop?! Please help!
