About Midland Funding
Who is Midland Funding?
Midland Funding, LLC is a purchaser of unpaid debt, including credit cards, personal loans, and other debts. Midland Funding buys accounts when a company decides to sell the unpaid account rather than continue collection efforts. Midland Funding, LLC purchases accounts with an unpaid balance when:
- An account has gone at least 180 days without making a payment, or
- Someone paid less than the minimum monthly payment for at least 180 days, and
- The original creditor wishes to sell the right to collect on the account balance.
Why does Midland Funding appear on my credit report?
When an account is charged-off, it generally remains on your credit report for seven years from the date you originally went delinquent. When an account is sold, the original account may be updated on the credit report to show it was transferred to a new owner, or the original creditor may choose to delete their reporting. Midland Funding appears on your credit report because it is the owner of your charged-off account, but the seven-year reporting period continues to be calculated from the date your account went delinquent with the original creditor.
Per our policy, we stop credit reporting on accounts that are Paid in Full or Paid in Full for less than the full balance. For more information visit Midland Credit Management Inc. (MCM) credit reporting page.
To find out how you can resolve this obligation call the servicer of your account, MCM, at (877) 653-4161.
Does Midland Funding resell accounts?
Midland Funding shares the same Consumer Bill of Rights as our sister company, MCM, who services accounts on our behalf. According to our Consumer Bill of Rights, accounts are never resold, but they may be transferred back to the original creditor in certain circumstances.
