Consumer Complaint: I have been working with Midland Credit Management , Inc since the XXXX of XXXX. I called them on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX and spoke with a account manager about how or what I need to dispute this debt that I just found on my credit report when XXXX XXXX from XXXX XXXX. She informed me that I had a debt in collections from Midland Funding, LLC. I informed her that I never had a credit card through XXXX XXXX. So I contacted Midland Credit Management, Inc on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX they told me they would send me a what I need to do and the information they have on the case. The paperwork states it was typed up on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX. Where they give some details about the account. And what information I need to seek if I want to dispute it. So after I received this packet I started filng reports the day of receiving the paperwork on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX. I filed a complaint report on ther FTC.gov for Identity Fraud as per stated in the inforamtion they sent me to get, and I also have contacted my local sheriff ‘s department to file a police report. The deputy came out to my house on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX and I showed him the information that Midland Funding, LLC sent me. He wrote up his report and gave me a card that had his name, title, phone #, case #, address of police station. I have scanned the business card the sheriff gave me and the report for identity theft report and have faxed the paperwork to Midland Funding, LLC on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX. I called them and spoke with Account Manager XXXX, he said they have n’t recieved the fax, and to wait 3 business days for their company to receive and upload documents to their system, but I could also email. So I emailed them on the XXXX of XXXX XXXX. I have been calling them every week to keep hearing the same information to call back next week or the information you sent is Invalid and they will contact their legal team to see why infomration ( police report, and FTC Identity Theft Report ) is invalid, and inform me to call back every week. So I ‘ve had enough and trying to take this to a higher level.
