Hi Samantha,

I think what would be best is if you write personally to the lenders and state that due to the seriousness of the matter - and how you are taking it seriously, etc. etc. could they please not telephone to discuss matters but place everything in writing.

Then if they do contact you, you can then officially complain that they have not adhered to your request.

I would also invest in an ansaphone so you can monitor all calls to your home.

Best of luck.

I believe PA state law has no such restrictions on the books. They can call you when they like, at any reasonable time of day or night. I think 10pm is the "accepted" (i.e. not legislated) cut off, but this you will have to check out locally. This is not the right site for you - check in your local yellow pages for a free debt counselling service. We deal only with the UK on this site. Best of luck.
