Consumer Complaint: I was served a claim/judgment form Midland funding for the amount of XXXX. I noticed this account on my credit report and have written the 3 bureaus to please validate debt. I have written the 3 bureaus several letters within the last 6 months. Now i have been served court papers without proof the debt belongs to me. Midland funding or the 3 bureaus has not sent me validation of the debt. I am making this complaint because I feel I am being sued in error with no proof. I have requested for Midland to produce any credit application signed by me, to please produce all statements from beginning to present and to produce detail regarding alleged charges by amount, type and date.
