Creditors Who Contact Employers are in Violation

Individuals who owe debts sometimes face intimidation from creditors. How creditors treat debtors is regulated under North Carolina and federal law. Debt collectors may theaten to contact a debtor's employer, reveal the debts owed and try to garnish your wages. These are empty threats. If the creditor follows through with their threats they are violating state and federal law. As a result, the debtor could prosecute the creditor and potentially collect thousands--plus attorney fees.
