Some states have laws under which you can sue creditors for violation of your privacy. But there is no federal law.

Can a creditor send me a postcard with my bills noted down on it? It’s open for everyone to see! Isn’t it violation of my privacy? What can I do?

You say… “creditor”, right? In that case, no federal law prevents the creditor from using a postcard. However, some states impose limitations on the creditors as well, to protect the privacy of the debtors. Which state are you from?

If it’s a collection agency, you can put the FDCPA to use.
