How Debt collection agencies violates your privacy No one plays with his or her privacy because it spells the dignity of such an individual. The law also respects your privacy when it comes to debt because if it is made public information, your image can be affected negatively.

Debt collectors as well as other debt collection agencies are not expected to do the following; engaging in any of these acts violates your privacy. Your privacy is violated when:

  • They publicly disclose your debt status in order to make you pay it
  • They exchange/share any information with another company or other debt collector agencies
  • They advertise your debt for sale to other companies or inappropriate parties
  • They send mail to you having improper markings; identifying your debt.
Privacy Violations: Debt Collector Disclosures with Third Parties Any disclosure with third parties by debt collectors results in your privacy violation because debt disclosure should not exceed the designated parties. For instance, in the process of trying to reach or locate you, a debt collector may decide to call some third parties like your extended family members. There are guiding principles on the debt collectors’ interaction with these third parties. It must however be noted that the parents of a minor, co-signor, spouse and executor/administrator of an estate or trust are regarded as having same contacts with you (debtor) under the FDCPA. Third parties here refer to either employers or neighbours, and as such, debt collectors are expected to adhere strictly to the following rules when speaking about your debt to them.
  • They are not expected to discuss the details of your debt with them or even mention to them that you owe a debt
  • While they are not expected to hide their identity when calling, they should not specify that they are debt collectors
  • They have the right to contact the third party once except where they believe the third party has new information regarding the location or contact of the debtor
  • They are not expected to leave information regarding debt on a third party’s voice mail, answering machine or provide any clue about debt in written correspondence
