What legal action can I take against a debt collector for taking money out of my bank account without authorization?

Question Details:

A creditor set up payment arrangements with my spouse on her bank account. Since the credit was unable to get payment from her account they took the money out of my account. They were able to retrieve my bank information due to me making a payment for her 4 months ago. All payment arrangements are recorded and the supervisor stated that they would listen to the tapes and get back with us. Now that they reviewed the tapes the company is avoiding calls and we have left several messages. What legal action can I take against the company?
