A payday collector called my boss today and stated that I defaulted on $300 and if I didn't want to go to jail. I needed to pay $2300 today itself. Is this reasonable to pay such an amoumt when the default amount is just $300. Also, they called my employer that they were going to sue them as well. Can they do so when mu boss has nothing to do with my loan?

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is meant for third party debt collectors. If the debt collector that contacted your employer was not the actual creditor and a third party collector, then it appears to be the violation of the fdcpa. Consult a consumer attorney in your area. If you can prove it a violation of the law, you may be entitled to recover up to $1,000 in statutory damages, plus attorney fees and costs incurred.
