My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Missouri
I have a question I have a debt collector who has called me several times and left messages stating, I have typed everything word for word. Is any of this illegal? As of today there has not been anything filed against me in court:

good morning my name is mrs Hampton, I’m a paralegal calling from atlas law group, investigating a criminal complaint that was filed against you in our office we have left you several messages concerning this I’ve not heard back from you. we are about to forward this case over to the st louis city county prosecutors office where they will take further action unless I hear back from you. I’m going to see if I can get in touch with a supervisor over there and maybe they can pass along the message to you. Again a criminal complaint filed against you about a couple of weeks ago.
