Ventura County CA – I've heard of debt collectors contacting people's family and relatives trying to reach them for "an important business matter."

When they tell the relative their business name, then it becomes obvious what is happening. They do this as an attempt to embarrass a debtor into paying them.
Here is what most debtors do not know. This is actually a violation of a Federal Law called The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, provided the debt collector has your information already.
I have seen this happen in many situations. Someone gets a call from a debt collector. A few days later that same person calls their relative and says they can't reach the debtor.
They are not allowed to do that because they already have your information. If this happens to you, then document everything. Then, call that company and ask for the manager or company owner.
You have several options available to you at this point. You can use this violation to negotiate for a much lower payoff on the debt. In some instances you can convince them to forgive the debt over the violation.
If they don't want to negotiate with you, then contact a debt collection lawyer. Just Google "Fair Debt Collections Lawyer" for help. Many of them will help you for no cost. They only get paid if they collect from the debt collection company.
Don't kid yourself, this is real. I know for a fact that debt collection companies are scared of being sued. In fact, they have systems in place that flag debtors that have sued another company.
They may choose not to attempt to collect from that debtor, because they think there is a high likelihood of being sued themselves. In my opinion, most debt collectors break the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act all the time.
I used to think that debt collectors didn't break the law. Because of the stories I have heard from Stop Foreclosure Institute Customers, I now believe otherwise.

Chris B Johnson, Prudential Califonia Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
