Midland Funding LLC - “ How do you deal with this collection agency"?


Midland Funding LLC is a collection agency (CA) with a lot of consumer complaints. Read through the topics given below to learn how you can deal with Midland Funding LLC collections if they contact you regarding an outstanding debt.


What steps should you take if the CA contacts you about an old debt?

You should take the following steps in dealing with Midland Funding LLC:

  • Ask for validation: If the agency comes after you for an old debt you think you do not owe, you should send them a validation letter. If they cannot validate the account, they have no right to collect money from you.
  • Check the SOL: Check your state law and find out if the Statute of Limitations (SOL) has expired on the account they're trying to collect on. If the SOL has expired, the agency cannot sue you to collect on the debt.
  • Send Cease and Desist letter: If the collection agency fails to validate the account, the SOL has expired, or if you want to deal directly with the original creditor, you should send the CA a Cease and Desist letter asking them to stop contacting you. If they don't, they will be in breach of the FDCPA and probably your state's consumer protection laws as well. You should also file a complaint against Midland Funding LLC with your State's Attorney General and the FTC.

I'm asking this question for my Cousin who lives in Iowa.

Is there anyway to stop a wage garnishment without filing for bankruptcy. My cousing received a phone call from midland funding llc debt collector on Friday saying they were going to proceed with the garnishment, but if she was able to make arrangements please give them a call. Well she was going to call them the folloing Monday and when she got her check that Monday 200 was gone for the garnishment. She knew they were trying to sue her but things kept getting held up because the Midland Company didn't have their stuff together. They also kept telling my cousin to call, but they would never return her calls. Why would they call her on Friday telling her to call for arrangements knowing they were already getting some of her money. She wants to pay them, but she can't afford to have her wages garnished. Is there anyway to prove that this is causing financial hardship. She has two young kids to take care of and she she is already two months behind on her car payment. When she gets paid again, the next 200 will make her short on rent. I heard somewhere that a "CLAIM OF EXEMPTION" can be filed. Does anybody know anything about that and how it works. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful.

Sub: #2 Claim of Exemption

I just went, or rather, am going through this. You have a limited time after the initial information on the wage garnishment starts. You can get the Claim of Exemption form online, or go to your nearest Legal Aid location, and tehy will help you fill it out. A simple form stating your income and your expenses. List everything you earn, adn everything you spend on a regular basis, and don't forget to put in some money for entertainment (movie night once a month...)
This form, needs to be delivered to the office that served the wage garnishment, mine was the Sheriff's Dept. Once that is filed, a copy is sent to the plaintiff. If they disagree with your numbers, or think they can get a judge to side with them, they have 15 days to file a request for a hearing. If they do not, all the money that has been collected will be returned to you. If they fight the Claim of Exemption, you will have a hearing date set, and a judge will look over your finances, and decide on an amount, if any that is fair for them to garnish from your wages each pay period.

Hope this helps someone.

This company goes by several aka's heres the deal you can dispute these accts and once the CRA takes them off .FTC says it is deceptive business practices to change the name of the origional company to add it back once deleted..

Here is what you need to verify..
1. Check 2 reports if you have had them previously deleted.
2. Match up the acct #'s if they match you still in the game.
3. Start printing off the papers that have 2 diff names with same acct #.
4. File a civil complaint on line with your local law enforcement.
5. Call each credit Bureau and tell them what has happened. Let them know you have the printouts for this problem.
6. Offer to fax ea CRA a copy of what you have .
7. Contact the FTC and explain this to them..
8. Find a attorney.
We lost the loan on our house due to this company.
I can get actual damages because my loan officer typed a letter stating the only change was from this company and slammed my husbands credit.. Don't be scared of them they buy dirty paper and try to force compliance in our case I caught on before they could sue or start a bad roller coaster ride..Hope this helps...

Check whether or not the collection agency has secured a judgment order against you from the court. There are some retirement accounts which are exempted from garnishment. These are 401(k) account, 403(b) accounts, etc. To get more details on this issue, visit the following page:

I received a summons from Midland Funding LLC for $863.00. I had never heard of this company before and knew nothing of this debt. I contacted the attorney for the plantiff and told him this was not my debt. He told me that I had been sent out a letter more than thirty days ago and they were not required to show me proof of anything. I followed the advice of people on this site and other sites and sent a certified debt validation letter to the attornies, Midland Funding, and the court. I was really scared for my court date but it was this morning and guess what? Case dismissed! They did not even show up in court.I was devastated when I received the summons and thought for sure I would be garnished for something that wasn't even mine. The best advice I can give is to do research on the company, on the alleged debt you owe, etc. Write a certified letter of validation. Always show up in court. Of course it is morally right for a person to pay their debts. If the debt is truly yours, try to work something out with the creditor. They will see that something is better than nothing. If it is not yours, don't give up the fight. I was shocked when I did research on Midland Funding and discovered how many bogus lawsuits they actually file. Lawsuits are very scary and unpleasant either way. I was in tears on my way to court. I feel vindicated now though.

I wanted to see what my options are in regards to a situation with a Midland Funding LLC who has hired Fulton Friedman & Gullace LLP who filed a wage garnishment. I actually agreed to a payment option but when I told them I wouldn't be able to make the initial payment until the following month, Hans Aguilar the paralegal for the firm told me the deal was off. I wanted to see what I can do to stop the wage garnishments. I tried to talk to three people at Fulton Friedman and Gullace LLP but I was told on they couldn't do anything for me, it was my fault.
