No. Tell them that you have been advised by counsel to record all phone calls from creditors.

Absolutely not. And you don't have to be there for him or listen to a word he says. Though, I would almost guarantee they are bluffing anyway. Nobody is showing up to serve you. If someone were really going to serve you papers, they would not give you warning.

No. Calls of this nature are likely to be from scammers.

Absolutely not!!! You can also be served by certified mail, or even by special server (a person), before or after working hours. Sooner or later you will be served, and you should immediately consult an experienced Attorney to advise and represent you, to protect your rights and interests.
