My car place has been calling my job even after i asked them not to. Is that legal or harrassment?

They told me that because i have a car with them It is legal for them to harrass me at work.

Update:

first for all of you that tried to answer. i dont owe them anything. i am current with all my payments...some of you should do research before you answer questions...Got with a lawyer to find out my answer....Any creditor, third party or not CAN NOT contact you at work if you have told them they can not contact you there...

    if it is the dealer or used car lot that sold you the car they are free to call you, the do not call me applies only to 3rd party collectors, pay them

    It is legal and it is perfectly legal harassment.

    The prohibition about calling someone's employer only applies to a third party debt collector. If you owe the "car place" money, you need to pay them or they will keep calling.

    Don't blame them. If you pay the payments, they won't call you. If you can't pay, then give the car back and be prepared to pay the difference between what you owe and what they sell it for.

    Why are you mad at them? You owe money, you aren't paying. That's not their fault. Find a way to pay.

    You can call it harassment if you want, but they just want their money. You owe the money, find a way to pay it and they will stop calling.

    If you don't pay, they will come and get your car.

    If this is the original entity that owns the debt they can do pretty much what ever they want to collect it. The restrictions are all on debt collection agencies.

    What the hell is a "car place"?

    If they're trying to collect money you owe them, they must stop calling you if you tell them to.

    However, they can continue with other debt collection methods, such as repossession or lawsuit.
