I have permitted my son who lives in his own apartment across from our family home to use our phone number. He does not have a personal phone in his place. He has been having financial difficulties and several of his accounts has been sent to collections . He has lost his job due to lay offs and is finding it hard. The collection agencies will not stop phoning our number to speak to him. My husband and I are not involved in his debt and have repeatedly told the collections people that he can no longer be reached at this number . This is our phone and not his. The collection agencies have told us they will continue to call us a 100 times a day if they wish because our son used our number . What should we do? My husband thinks that we should press criminal charges against them . We do not want to incur legal expenses for attorneys etc.
