Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, you can demand that they not contact you at work and they must honor that request.
If they refuse, then they have violated the FDCPA. You can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission:
In addition, the threats of arrest are also violations of the FDCPA. I would file a complaint regarding that conduct.
In the alternative, you can also file suit under the FDCPA for both the harassment and arrest threats. The FDCPA provides for a $1,000 civil penalty to you for each violation (each phone call and each threat).
