Debt collectors are not allowed to contact third parties about your debt in the state of Florida. However, they are allowed to contact friends, family members, or your employer, one time to get location information only. Location information is your name, your address, your telephone number and your place of employment. Any contact with third parties beyond that is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and you may be entitled to damages.
