I have a loan in collection with a Canadian agency; I have been trying to come to agreement on repayment plan. Problem with this, every time I turn around, I am dealing with a new person at the agency. I have informed the agency in writing not to contact me at work, and that all corisondece should be done in writing, so there is a paper trail, of course they did not follow this. Last week my boss came to me and said she had received a disturbing phone call from a collection agency, my heart dropped. She said they identified themselves as an employee of the collection agency, there next question was if I was the boss off this employee (me). She was told that I owe a large amount of money to them, and they can't get hold of me. She asked how this is her problem, and they answered well she is your employee. They ended by saying there next phone call would be to our human resource department. I am not familiar with the law, but I feel like they were wrong. Are they allowed to call my boss and tell them I am in debt to a collection agency? My boss was understanding, but did say that this could not be brought to the work place. What is my course of action?

You can try to contact your local Ministry of Consumer and Businesses and file a complaint.

They are most certainly NOT allowed to contact your employer.....or your neighbor.....or any other family member....etc.

What collection agency did this?
