Burnham & Associates | Stephanie K. Burnham
If you have filed a Bankruptcy, the law provides you with what is called an "Automatic Stay". An Automatic Stay is to stop all of your creditors from attempting collection action against you. If you are still getting contacted by your Creditors you should give them your Docket Number and tell them to stop calling. If they continue to call then you should make sure that they are listed in your Bankruptcy Petition and speak with an attorney about taking action against them for violation of the Automatic Stay.

You should give your creditors your bankruptcy case number. Usually, proof of filing will make them stop calling. Then, take the name and return number of the person you are speaking with. Keep a log of these calls. If the calls from the same creditors persist, you can ask your attorney to file a motion in the bankruptcy court to punish the creditors for violation of the automatic stay (the bankruptcy injunction which is meant to keep your creditors from bothering you).

When you filed a Chapter 13, an Automatic Stay went into effect. The Automatic Stay acts as an injunction to prevent your creditors from calling you or collecting on a debt listed in the bankruptcy. Give them your case number and your attorneys phone number. After that, hang up on them.

Once you file for bankruptcy the creditors cannot take any legal action to collect the debt against you as long as they are listed as creditors. Did you tell them that you filed for bankruptcy? If not, then you would need to inform them of this fact. They should have also gotten notice from the court.
