Consumer Complaint: Back in XX/XX/XXXX I submitted a letter to Midland Credit Management at XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX, CA XXXX to verify a debt they were attempting to collect. I received a letter back from them in XX/XX/XXXX stating that they did not have enough information to verify the debt and that they would remove the information from my credit file and would no longer contact me.
In XX/XX/XXXX I received another demand letter for payment, on the EXACT same account they verified they would close. I called XXXX and spoke with a XXXX XXXX, an office manager, today XX/XX/XXXX who informed that the account should have been closed. This is harassment.
