I received a phone call from a man at Northland Group [protected]) on 06/18/09 around 8pm.
He asked for for my name Susan Parker then he asked is this the Susan born(mention a birthdate). I asked him what is this about, he wouldn't say just said it was a personal matter.
Then he kept mentioning the birthdate. Since he wouldn't tell me why he was calling, I told him I don't have time for games then I hung up.
I WAS SENT A LETTER SAYING I OWED 1, 378.56 ON A CREDIT CARD FROM CAPITAL ONE, AND I'VE NEVER HAD A CREDIT CARD.

I received debt collection letters for quiet awhile from Asset Recovery Associates on a debt that was over 14 years old. Did some investigating and would like to share with my information. Asset Recovery Associates or ARA was also known as Financial Services, Inc. until the Illinois Attorney General filed suit against them. So they changed their name. And now they have changed their name again to Northland Group, Inc. saying they have been assigned my account and in view of the tax season, their client is willing to reduce your balance by offering a settlement. Don't let these con artists, fraudulent schemers get your tax refund that you deserve! I got professional advice on this. The collection letters that you receive, if you Do Not owe this debt you can take these letters to your postmaster in your area and file a report for mail fraud. You can go to FBI on the internet and report this fraudulent company. You can also report it to the BBB. We must stop these preditors that try to take our hard working money we earn away from us! They have no conscious what so ever!!
I was reading your complaints and read one submitted on Mar 08 this year from Lisa. She stated: Now, 2 years later, I get a bill stating to the effect that "in view of the tax season, our client is willing to reduce your balance by offering you a settlement." I have received one almost exactly like hers. I paid in full and closed out a First Premier SD $350 pre- paid credit card account almost 8 years ago. About two months later, they sent me a bill for "fees" totalling $167. I refused to pay these fees because I had paid the card off. So they sold my account to Arrow Financial who continued up until the end of last year to call, write and threaten me to collect the $167. Now Arrow has apparently sold the debt to Northland Group Inc. Now, this bill is over eight years and I do not feel it is a legitimate debt. I have answered their letter online, and told them I am not obligated to pay this bill and don't intend to. i feel this is a fraudulent practice to sell a debt and keep trying to collect and report it well after the amount of time the debt should be carried by creditors

I received a "bill" from Northland Group Inc. trying to collect on what I thought was a credit card I had from 19 years ago. When I first received this bill two years ago (it mysteriously showed on my credit report AFTER I purchased my first home). I contacted all three credit bureaus and they all responded back by saying that the matter had been cleared. I checked them later and it was gone. Now, 2 years later, I get a bill stating to the effect that "in view of the tax season, our client is willing to reduce your balance by offering you a settlement." I contacted them by email and phone, and no one could tell me the name of the store and when the account was opened. It seems as if these "offers of settlements" come around tax time.
Their collection letter claims they are working on behalf of SBC. I have never had any service at my home by SBC. In fact, SBC doesn't offer service in this area. I have never lived in an area where SBC had service they could offer. I get numerous calls from collection companies that are just fishing out Mexican names - and they insist that I know these people, you see, because if a Mexican shares a name with whomever they are looking for, then they must be related. I'm tired of being racially profiled, harassed due to my race, threaten and insulted.
SBC has no information on any account using my name. So if SBC has never done business with my address, then why does Northland Group Inc. have the right to mass mail people that share a last name and attempt to turn a false claim into the burden of the receiver to refute?
I intend to send them a letter saying if they do not produce a valid signed contract from SBC in 30 days, then I will assume the debt they are collecting is a fraudulent attempt and they will be reported to the Attorney General in their district.

These incompetent wankers have been harassing me and my family (they're calling my parents house, where I'm staying temporarily) for the past two weeks. After hanging up on them multiple times without knowing who they were or why they were calling, I finally stayed on the line long enough to find out the purpose of their call. The guy called, asked for me, and I hung up after he identified himself as being from the Northland Group. As I'd never heard of such a company, I figured he was trying to sell me something. He called back immediately and declared that hanging up on him is pointless because he'll just keep calling back. He then went on to say that he was calling in regards to my delinquent Capital One credit card. I explained that I don't have a credit card now and have never had one in the past and that I don't know what he's talking about. He said that either someone could have committed identity theft against me, but that because I keep hanging up on him, it leads him to believe that I do know what he's talking about and simply trying to avoid the issue. I said "So, you're going to call me at home and insist that I have an overdue account with these people, then accuse me of lying about it? That's just fantastic. Do you treat everyone you talk to like this"? He replied with "Yes, we do, because you aren't customers. You're irresponsible, low-life debtors who think they can get away with not paying your bills". I explained that I would not be putting up with his abuse anymore and he threatened to mark me down as 'refusal to pay'. I simply said "Do what you have to do, and stop calling me", then hung up.
Later the same night (9:450 PM!!), a woman called from NG and asked for me; I told her she had the wrong number. She said "Well, that's goofy. My notes show that we talked to her at this number earlier today". I told her that her notes must be incorrect, because she had the wrong number. She said "Give it up, I know you're lying. Let me talk to Rachel NOW". I hung up.
They call every single day, usually more than three times, usually shouting, swearing, and making all kinds of threats. I don't know how they got my information or why they've started calling now OR why the bloody hell they think I have a credit card when I've never even APPLIED for one! I've been living in the UK for two years! I'm only here temporarily to sort out the last of my immigration stuff.
I've filed complaints with the FTC as well as the BBB, but I know that won't stop them from calling. Is there any way to get my parents' number taken off their list?
We have been receiving unwanted phone calls from Northland Group since 5/18/2017. Every day, the Northland Group call for a person who is not related nor ever lived at my address. It seems that this person used our name and address as a reference on his loans which are now in default. Since the Northland Group has no regard in any FTC laws, I decided to report them to the FTC. Just go to http://www.ftc.gov/ and file a complaint under Consumer Protection and use the address below.
The FTC did respond to the complaint:

In my case, I have a collections agency calling my house on a daily basis and I'm not the one they are calling about. I guess I'm supposed to do the leg work for them or they will harass me until they get their money from this guy.
