  1. If accounts have gone to a collection agency, as opposed to the original creditor, debt collectors cannot contact you directly after they know you are represented by an attorney. You may wish to retain an attorney. If an individual collector calls you more than a few times each week, or is particularly harassing, you may have an affirmative claim under the Maine or Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If you file bankruptcy, creditors cannot contact you at all; most will stop once they know you've retained an attorney for that purpose
