Northland Group: From Our Case Files

On behalf of our client, Lemberg & Associates recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, Western District of Tennessee, against Northland Group. Our client alleges that she received a collection call from Northland Group, and told them that the debt had been paid more than five years ago. She alleges that debt collectors from Northland Group continued to call, so she retained an attorney and told the debt collectors that she had legal representation. Our client alleges that, even though she’d given Northland Group her attorney’s contact information and asked them to stop calling her, the debt collection agency continued to call her in an attempt to collect the debt. She says that the debt collector told her, “If you do not cooperate, I will notate your file and you will be taken care of!”

The lawsuit charges that Northland Group violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by contacting our client after being told she was represented by an attorney; by engaging in harassing behavior; by misrepresenting the character of the debt; and by failing to send a validation notice. In addition, the lawsuit charges that Northland Group violated Tennessee law by intentionally inflicting emotional distress.
