I received a letter from small claims court. It has the Plaintiff as Midland Funding being represented by Howard Lee Schiff Law office.
Up until this point I have received a collection letter from another collection agency and I was never notified from Midland that they now hold my account. I also never received any thing from the law office that they have my account or they were intending to sue me for the balance.
I live in Massachusetts. Doesn't the collection agency need to send me something stating that they now hold my debt and that they intend to sue me for the balance if I do not pay it?
I didn't even have an opportunity to setup a payment plan or anything.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
