A member of staff from the creditor has been telling other people my account status and really is effecting my buisness
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
No they can't. It's a breach of the data protection act. They can only discuss with others if you have given permission, otherwise it's a breach of the act if they are disclosing personal sensitive data about you.
