Can I sue my creditors for giving out my information without my consent.

Asked about 5 years ago - San Jose, CA

I have received calls from debt collectors who seem to know my phone number, address, and social security number. They claim to have gotten my information from my creditors. My problem with this is that I never gave anyone permission to give out my information.

    Answered . Creditors can give your information to agencies assigned to collect on the creditor's behalf. That's just the way it is.
