this non english speaking collector has been calling my work/my cell and the people used as references on my application and using foul words and threating them and me and hangs up when I return his calls.I have filed bankruptcy and tried to give him my attorney info and he yelled at me "who the hell did I think I was? for me to have my attorney call him. Yet when the attorney calls he does not pick up. What am I to do?

You lawyer knows very well what steps to be taken. Ask him to help you. However, if he fails, move on and hire someone else - an experienced one.

This is a very severe case of creditor harassment and the collector is consciously violating the FDCPA. Your lawyer is the best person who knows what steps to be taken under these circumstances. Anyway, the best thing to do is to sue the collection agency once you gather enough evidence about the harassment. Alternatively, you could also have reported their activities to the following agencies.

State attorney general's office

Federal Trade Commission (FTC): http://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
