I have an account with midland. Weird, the account was originally a fingerhut account. Then midland took it and hired Phillips and Cohen to collect it. I posted about this a while back--a collection agency collecting for a collection agency. weird but I have two accounts that are doing this. The other was a MBNA account and it went into collections to Hilco receivables, and now Phillips and Cohen are collecting on it as well.

I have had calls from MCM, who has acted like they were KGB using hard tactics. A real joke to someone who has lost everything and been to jail. I tried to contact them, their address has changed in the past weeks. They want me to disclose more info than I prefer to, just to tell me what they want. I have found many, many complaints regarding Midland Credit Management online. The caller, obviously from INDIA uses names like Tom Jones, or Bill Smith... what a joke. I usually invite them over for some beef and tell them to call anytime. Fools.

Have you requested for a validation? collection agencies should provide debt validation prior to starting collection efforts. Send them a letter via CMRRR and also add one paragraph stating all communications should be through correspondence only.

Was the account included in bankruptcy? If yes, they cannot collect it any more. You should consult your bankruptcy attorney about this.

Midland is such a rip-off. I too had an account with Ugly Duckling, and an ugly duck is exactly what I got. I ended up giving it back to Ugly Duckling, who was bought out by Drive Time. Originally, it was listed as a charge-off and they never persued payment of any king - mainly because my complaint about the vehicle was legit. Now, Midland is holding the receivable on that account. They hound me like a dog and they won't accept any certified mail. Makes you wonder...HMMM

yup validation of debt is very important....most of the CAs are bullies who try each and every trick of the book to harass innocent people. And the only thing that can bring these crooks on the right track is debt validation. Ohh yes, dont forget to send the DV via certified mail with a RRR. Once you send a DV to them you can be sure that they wont contact you. Even if they contact you they wont give you a proper validation of the debt. In such circumstances it is very important to know the laws and to fight back.

What can I do... Midland Credit Managment sent a collection ("Settlement Opportunity") letter to me, but to a relative's address. The relative opened the letter (not expecting any mail for me - just blindly opened the envelope without looking at the name, innocent mistake). I do not live at that address! Now I'm thoroughly embarrassed because they have intimate knowledge of my financial difficulties!
