Debt Collectors for Old debt

I was living abroad and came back to Malaysia recently. I recently have been receiving calls re my bad debt from over 15 years ago ( cc, personal loans totalling <30k)  from debt collectors and recently 2 person came to my family's house (which i do not live in) and kept asking questions about me. 

Is this legal? I thought it would be illegal for the person to discuss re something this private to another member of family. They also kept asking my family about my whereabouts and talking about court actions (not to them but towards me).

These 2 person also came during PKP and crossed district - as they were supposedly from another district (according to their namecards which are also very questionable). They handed a letter. I saw the letter (a pic) and there were no mention of how much etc or anything like that. 

I have been advised by a friend to seek assistance from AKPK re debt payment but has nvr got around to it due to the C19 situation and i m unemployed. I do not have a permanent address and its a worrying fact that the only way these people are getting my information is because I have registered with the government's initiative to provide finance assistance (.the BRP payment).

Would appreciate if anyone can shed some.light please.

Thank you jeff005

My last valid address to the creditor 15 yrs ago wasnt my family's address which i have nvr used apart from when i recently request for the govt financial assistance. So, it was nvr the intension of 'dragging' anyone into my debt. None of them has.ackowledged tht i am living at tht address. They were not harassed, but they were informed of the reason why those people were thr. I thought any financial related matters are confidential, but obviously not, especially now tht i know my data has leaked from a supposedly trusted agency.

I have read the various responses and now have some idea of what my rights and actionable steps are. Thank you for your time and effort.
