Consumer Complaint: To Whom It May Concern, Thank you for taking the time to review my file and to help me with this matter of dealing with Midland Funding LLCt. To date, Midland has a poor track record in regards to its collection tactics which have resulted in fines from the United States Government and from individual states as well. As of this year Midland has had to pay close to one million dollars in fines and penalties due to their unlawful business procedures which violate the consumers rights. Their illegal actions have caused thousands upon thousands of consumers credit files to be tainted with negative remarks which includes myself. Please remove Midland Funding LLC from my file so that I can restore my credit and good name back to where it once was. I thank you one again for your time and I look forward to having Midland Funding LLC removed from my credit file. Sincerely,
Company: ENCORE CAPITAL GROUP INC.
State/Zip: TX 775XX
