Can an lawyer contact my family over my foreclosure.

Asked over 1 year ago - Labelle, FL

I had an lawyer contact my grandmother and give her my personal information in regards to my home being in foreclosure. The bank I had the note with had my current phone number and address. Is this legal for them to give out that information and if not what law are they breaking.

    Answered . In general, an attorney will not give out confidential information. However, it is possible that you were not contacted by an attorney but some sort of debt collection company. Many of these companies are both unethical and illegal however they persist especially in this industry.

I would inform her that it was some unethical sales call and tell her to hang up next time they call. Good luck.
