Answer: Debt collectors may contact third parties, not associated with the debt, for limited information regarding the debtor. Unless you are a cosigner on the debt, it is unlikely for them to be able to hale a person other than the debtor into court. Please seek legal advice regarding this matter from a licensed attorney by calling the lawyer referral service at 602-257-4434 or visiting www.consumer.ftc.gov for information about collections.
