Who is Midland Funding?
Midland Funding, also known as Midland Credit Management, is one of the largest debt buyers in America. Midland Funding is a bulk purchaser of charged off debts. It purchases the charged off debt at a fraction of the price from the original creditor then turns around and tries to collect the debt from you!
For example, let’s say you fall behind on a Chase credit card and don’t make payments for 180 days. You owe $5,000, but are unable to make payments due to being financially strapped. Midland Funding will purchase Chase’s charged off debt for $1,000. Chase will also send your last known address and phone number. Midland Funding will then attempt to collect the full $5,000 from you. This is all legal.
Now, Midland Funding will attempt to collect the $5,000 debt by calling and sending letters to individuals. If calling and sending letters does not get the desired result, Midland Funding will eventually sue you in court. In order to do so they must hire a local attorney. The law offices we most frequently see representing Midland Funding in Michigan are Mary Jane Elliott and Weltman, Weinberg & Reis.
