Consumer Complaint: A company name d Midland Credit Management ha s been hounding me for years over an alleged XXXX debt. The debt in question was bogus in the first place, and is well beyond the statue of limitations anyway. I have repeatedly made them aware that the debt is not legitimate. I have even succeeded in getting them to admit it themselves, several times. They have also admitted it is past the statute of lim itations. They have never affected my credit report, they have made it clear that they can not and will not persue legal action against me, and they are usually fairly polite. They just NEVER STOP CALLING. I have made dozens – if not hundreds – of requests for them to stop contacting me. I receive 2-3 letters a month, and a minimum of 3 phone calls a day. When I block the number, they just call back from a new one a few minutes lat er.
