When can CA'S call your phone?

I think that i have read before that CA's have certain times that they are allowed to call.  Is this true and if so what are the hours and can they call anyday of the week?  I am sure M-F and sat what about Sunday?

If you know of where I can look to find this out.  I know I have read about it before I can not find anything in here when I search for it.

Re: When can CA'S call your phone?

i agree with the above responses.

I would just add that you can block all future communications by simply sending them a letter under FDCPA 805(c), advising them that they are to cease all further communication with you.

Good point Robert. I left that very important piece of information out.

Re: When can CA'S call your phone?

Can you send them a letter asking them to cease telephone communication with you, is that within your legal boundaries? I see alot on these boards that you are not supposed to talk to them on the phone, just in writing.

Yes you can. In fact this request must be in writing. You can't simply tell them over the phone to stop calling.

Is it OK to send that notification in your initial DV letter? Otherwise you would have to quickly follow up with that letter as soon as they reply to your DV, otherwise they will go on their phone calling spree.

I could be wrong but I believe that is perfectly acceptable.
