Hello All I filled a motion to object, Midland Funding levying my Bank Account. The debt they took far supersedes actual debt owed. I owe $200 for charges I made with a hidden fee credit card. I signed up for a CC with a $350 Credit Line, Nowhere did it say they were charging me $150 for $350 credit. I even paid my first balance off in full of $240. It wasn't until I hit my limit the second time, I learned of the $75 yearly membership fee & 1 Time $75 Fee. And when I begged them to remove these fees, while I awaited there written response cause they couldn't give one during our conversation. Even though in their rules it states not to make a payment while contesting charges. But two day's before I received their response I was hit with a late fee of $32 so now it went from $150 to $182 for $350 credit which really only is $168 credit when you remove what you owe in fees. So I didn't pay, I tried settling with them for the debt I owed but they didn't want to hear it. So now Midland Funding through Pressler & Pressler stole $738 out of my checking account, which was my wifes disability check. So I filed a motion to object the levy, my court date is this tuesday. Any ideas on what I should expect. Or advice on what to say or do?? For all the positive comments from Midland Employees.....Please!!!! This company is a bunch of crooks!!! They called me non stop, Harassed my mother at her work (Home Office) called Florida to my sisters and my fathers in WV. They even started calling for a Steve, who we tried and tried to tell them doesn't live here nor had he ever. I don't even have a friend named steve.. But they called and called and called. I have no problem paying for the charges I owe, but I'll be damned if a company is going to use hidden fees to lock me into a never ending fee after fee after fee. So what do you do?? Send them the money you owe just to have them hit you with more fees still ruining your credit. Thanks for any and all help. Hope everything works out for everyone.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
