Midland Credit Management Phone Harassment
Are you being harassed by Midland Credit Management? Midland Credit Management is a legitimate debt collection company that is licensed to pursue you over the debts you owe to them or to an original lender. What Midland Credit Management is, however, not permitted to do is harass, coerce, threaten, or intimidate you into the payment of a delinquent debt.
Some debt collectors are fond of harassing debtors in a bid to get them to pay up their debts. It is frustrating to be seeking ways to settle your debt and still be getting harassed by debt collectors at the same time.
This goes without saying that if you are currently being harassed by debt collectors, you do not have to put up with that. Your rights as a consumer are protected and federal laws like FDCPA, TCPA, and FCRA have made provisions to ensure that you are not harassed just because you owe debts to your creditor. So, if you have been enduring Midland Credit Management debt collection harassment, you do not have too anymore.
If you cannot afford to pay your debt in full at the moment, negotiating with your debt collector is an option you should be willing to consider. Debt collectors may not accept to have you pay less than you owe but they may agree on a more convenient payment plan for you that suits your monthly income.
Debt collection Agencies, Creditors, and Credit Reporting Agencies must respect your rights according to federal law. If you suspect that your rights are being violated, reach out to us on 877-700-5790.
Who is Midland Credit Management?
Midland Credit Management is a licensed debt collector in all 50 states. Midland Credit Management Inc, operates as a subsidiary of Encore Capital Group, Inc. A formidable force, these sister companies are the nation’s largest debt buyer and collector.
In 2015 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) took action against the nation’s two largest debt buyers and collectors for using deceptive tactics to collect bad debts. The inquiry uncovered that both companies had purchased debts that were unenforceable due to the fact that they were inaccurate or lacking proper documentation.

Midland Credit Management calling over a debt you do not owe?
Last year alone, over 40,000 complaints were received by the CFPB from consumers who claimed that a debt collector like Midland Credit Management was trying to collect a debt they did not owe.
While there may be many reason why Midland Credit Management Inc. may be calling you over a debt you do not owe (such as system errors, having a similar name with the person who actually owes the debt, identity theft, or fraudsters trying to carry out Midland Credit Management scams), more often than not, Midland debt collection agency may be trying to restart the clock on a time-barred debt, or may be unaware that the debt they are seeking to collect has already been settled or discharged in bankruptcy.
Nevertheless, you shouldn’t have to endure these calls, and this is why we will be teaching you how to dispute a debt you do not agree with and get Midland Credit off your back for good.
How to dispute a debt and win
On any debt collection call, the first thing to do would be to get the identity of the caller. This should include the name of the debt collection representative, the company they represent, a phone number with which you can contact them, and the address where their company is located. In addition, it is important to remember not to give them personal information (such as your full name, address, social security, or phone number) or admit that you owe the debt. This is extremely important especially when you don’t know who you’re talking to.
If the collector can’t identify who they are, then chances are you are about to get scammed. Hang up the phone and do not engage the caller.
Legally, Midland Collections should furnish you with information regarding the debt during the initial phone call or within five days from the date of the first call. This information should tell you your full name, the amount of the debt, the name of the current collector or debt buyer (if the debt has been bought or transferred), and information about how to contact your original creditor. If the debt was bought or transferred, then you may want to contact your original creditor for a confirmation.
The next step in the process of disputing a debt will be to actually send a debt dispute Letter; this is also what is known as a debt verification letter. Send the debt dispute letter within 30 days of the time you get the contact info to the address you got from the caller. Note that you have just 30 days to do this, or else the collectors from Midland Credit Management Inc. will have the right to assume that the debt is indeed yours and begin to fully pursue collection.
To send a debt dispute letter, you may use any of the sample letters prepared by the CFPB for this purpose, or better still, contact a consumer rights attorney to do so for you. An attorney is experienced in dealing with these kind of situations, and they will be poised to give you excellent advice.
Sometimes, sending a debt dispute letter fixes everything. If you are being contacted by a fraudster, or a debt buyer who does not have proper documentation to prove that the debt is yours, then a debt dispute letter fixes everything, but if you actually owe the debt and Midland credit collection has evidence to prove that you do, then there is a series of events that may unfold starting from when they receive your letter.
When Mdland Credit receives your letter, they must respond by sending you a detailed verification of your debt in a written document. During the period before you receive the document, they must cease all forms of communication with you until they are able to prove that you owe the debt.
If they can prove that you owe the debt, then they will commence collection attempts. If you don’t respond, then they may pursue legal actions against you and you will have to hire an attorney to represent your interests in court.
What you should know before negotiating with debt collectors
If you are considering negotiating with Midland Credit Management, there are things you must know to properly maximize the situation. Debt collectors have a lot of experience and may end up getting you to agree to less-than-favorable terms if you go into a negotiation without proper knowledge of how the process works.
- Know your rights: You must have an awareness of your rights under the various federal laws that govern debt collectors’ activities. Having this knowledge will make you more confident and logical when speaking with a debt collector.
- Do your research about the debt collection agency: In every negotiation, understanding the other party gives you an edge. It is the aim of every debt collector to make money by getting you to pay your debts. You must be aware of that.
- Make a debt validation request: The fact that you got called about debt does not mean that it is yours. Mistakes happen all the time with collection agencies hence the necessity for confirming if the debt is actually yours. This will prevent you from paying a bill that is not yours.
- Figure out how much you can pay and how it will affect you: To properly negotiate, you must have made a plan on your finances so as to know if you can afford to pay your debts and how to go about it. You need this information to productively negotiate.
- Start low: When you start negotiating, offer to pay way less than you have in mind. The debt collector may reject or accept the offer. Do not be moved or afraid regardless, keep negotiating until you arrive at a payment agreement that is favorable to you.
- Pen it down: Whatever agreement is made between the collector, and you should be put into writing.
