Debt Buyer Help

During the years 2011 to 2020, AWL sold certain loans to third-party debt buyers. Only one of these debt buyers, Northwood Asset Management Group, LLC, has agreed to cancel loans under the Settlement. The other debt buyers have not joined this Settlement. This means that you retain your rights against those debt buyers if they try to collect on your AWL loan they purchased.

If you are contacted by a debt collector, you may want to obtain legal advice. As part of this Settlement, you are entitled to free legal assistance from Settled Objectors’ Counsel with regard to loans still being collected by third-party debt collectors.

If you are being contacted by a debt collector regarding an AWL loan issued between February 10, 2011 and June 26, 2020, and would like to speak with an attorney, please provide your contact information in the form below.

This page will be updated. Please check this page again for future updates. On or before May 26, 2021, you will be able to check the class member portal,, to determine if you are eligible to receive a Cash Award or if your loan is among those being cancelled as disputed debt. Also, if your loan was sold to a debt buyer, the portal will inform you to whom your loan was sold, to the extent that information is available.
