Who is Northland Group Inc? Is This A Scam?

Northland Group Inc is a third-party debt collection agency based out of Edina, Minnesota. The agency was founded in 1982. Northland Group focuses mainly on the credit card, automotive, mortgage, student loan, telecommunications, and utilities industries.

Northland Group has received many consumer complaints claiming Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) violations. Some consumer reviews have accused Northland of making false statements or representations in pursuit of debt collection. Other examples of alleged violations include attempting to collect a debt not owed, contacting an employer and sharing information improperly, and improper communication tactics.

Nonetheless, Northland Group Inc is not a scam and they are in fact an authorized debt collection agency. Northland Group purchase packages of debt from other businesses, and then try to collect the debt from consumers. If Northland has contacted you, it is important that you learn your rights and how best to protect yourself before offering any response.

What Are Common Complaints Against Northland Group Inc?

As of September 2019, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has received over 440 complaints related to the debt collection practices of Northland Group. Examples of common complaints against Northland include trying to collect a debt not owed and improper communication tactics.

The following two real-world examples of complaints against Northland Group Inc illustrate these types of alleged violations.

Consumer alleges Northland Group uses improper communication tactics
“Northland Group Inc. repeatedly made phone calls that were annoying, abusive, or harassing to me or any person answering the phone as well as without telling me or any other persons who they were.”
 
Consumer alleges attempts to collect a debt not owed
“I have let [Northland Group] know they have the wrong number, let them know that I do not know the person, and requested that they stop calling me, remove my number. They continued to call.”

What Actions Can Northland Group Inc Legally Take Against Me? Can They Sue Me Or Garnish My Wages?

As a debt collector, Northland Group is not legally allowed to threaten to sue you, or threaten to garnish your wages. They are allowed to contact you via phone, text, or mail. However Northland cannot call you at inappropriate times including before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m.

Though they are not allowed to threaten lawsuit or wage garnishment, if you do not pay a valid debt owed to them, Northland Group may legally sue you in a court. If they get a default judgement against you in court, the judgement will state the amount you owe and allow them to garnish your wages for that amount. If you owe a debt to Northland and are concerned with the possibility that they might garnish your wages, it would be wise to speak to an attorney before it gets to this point.
