Consumer Complaint: A company called Midland Funding is not providing me with validation that I owe them any money. They are reporting that I have an unpaid debt with them of {$520.00} but I have never done business with them and I have never received any letters or notices from them. The account number on my credit is : ” XXXX ”. I only found out there was an account on my credit report when I checked my credit recently and it was pointed out that I had a collection. I ‘ve done some research online and I have only come across negative reviews and complaints by other consumers who have been harassed and scammed by this company. I will not give my money to a company I do not recognize and who will not tell me why they want me to pay them.
