How to Respond to Northstar

If you are contacted by Northstar, there are a couple of steps to deal with them.

Gain Information

To gain information about the debt, these are some tips you should employ.

  • Find out who the debt collector is and all contact information for them.
  • Determine how much debt is owed.
  • Determine how the debt was incurred.
  • Find out who the original creditor is. (For instance, you may have credit card debt, and the original creditor would be Discover, Visa, or another card company).
  • Ensure that it is genuinely you who owes the debt.

After You Have Information

Once you have written information from the debt collector, (they are required to send you a written notice with specific legal information) you have a few options.

  1. If it has been less than 30 days since you were first contacted, you can request more information about the debt.
  2. You can tell the debt collector that you don't owe the debt. You can combine this with sending out a debt verification request.
  3. Give the debt collector specific times you want them to contact you.
