Creditor comes to work

Question Can a creditor come by and visit me at work?
Answer Under federal law, a debt collector cannot communicate with you at work, once he knows that your employer prohibits such communication. This law, however, does not apply to the creditor itself. In my opinion, the creditor has the same right as anyone else to visit you at work. Of course, the creditor does not have the right to come by and harass, abuse, or publicly embarrass you.
