Can an original debtor continue to call me at work after being asked not to?

This is also where the original debtor is. Are there legal steps I need to take to have them stop. I have asked them to stop and my boss has told them to stop. I’m afraid I’ll get fired before I get the debt paid.

I believe that you mean the original creditor (the person who you owe money to) is bothering you at work. If you owe money to a person, then you are the debtor. In any event if the creditor keeps bothering you at work after being told not to, you have the following options:

1. work out a written agreement with the creditor where you pay so much per month by a certain date until the debt is paid off in full. That way the creditor should stop pestering you at work.

2. consult with an attorney who does restraining orders for people. Most likely a family law attorney would be a good choice. You might need to get a restraining order against the creditor from bothering you at work.
