- Contact anybody who is not the main person that owes the debt (family, neighbors, etc.)
- Threaten you with referral to an attorney, harm of credit, or wage garnishment without the actual intent to act on the threat
- Call at “unreasonable times” such as before 8:00 AM or after 9:00PM
- Contact you at your employer’s office if you tell them not to
- Place calls to your employer to inform them of your debt or disclosing any aspect of the debt to others
- Use profane or obscene language during calls
- Send collection letters that appear to be from a court or government office
- Threaten to arrest you if the debt remains unpaid
