Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
It is not a privacy issue. The credit card companies have many ways to find people all over the world. What has happened is that the attorneys have obtained a judgment against him and they are collecting it by having it deducted from his wages. This is legal. Under Philippine law, I believe he can file a bankruptcy and avoid paying, but he will have to contact an attorney there to find out about that. If he wants to avoid his employer being involved in any way, then he should make an arrangement to pay the judgment to the attorneys voluntarily in installment payments each month, or when he gets paid. If he makes those payments voluntarily, they will usually not go to his employer to attempt collection.
