I recently filled ch 13 1 year ago on some internet payday loan and have been receiving phone calls from foriegn speaking male with over a dozen phone number from all over the state as for as New York and I live in Mississippi. They have me 5-10 times a day from different numbers and names saying they are from the investigation or legal dept, they have began to call my job and they won't stop. I told them once that I filed bankrupcy on those checks and they call with a different company name that ikm not aware of. I ask for proof but they say they can't mail me anything and one even told me he would show me proof outside courthouse. I know these are scams, how can I stop the calls? I have over 20 numbers some are 10 digiits and some range from 2-5 digits, I have threaten to call police but the calls keep coming, they have even threaten to pick me up at my job. Please help! They have my social security number and email address

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
