My Friend’s Cell Phone Company is Calling Me to Find Her. – Joe

“Dear Steve,

Do You Have a Question You'd Like Help With? Contact Debt Coach Damon Day. Click here to reach Damon.

My friend owes money on an old cell phone bill and I received a call from this debt collection company stating that they noticed that I was a contact of hers. So I was wondering how they got this if they were going through her phone somehow and getting her contact list. So if that’s the case can they actually do that legally? Because I have no other association with her no bills or anything connected to her.


Dear Joe,

She probably just listed you as an acquaintance on the original contract. Are they disclosing details of the debt or just looking for your friend?

Tell your friend to call the cell phone company and make payment arrangements. It’s not fair leaving you in the middle on this.
