Subject: PFD - Midland
 
Posted on Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:01 am  

Hey Everyone -

I've begun taking the necessary steps towards credit recovery and last week sent out a couple DV's & a couple of PFD's...one of which was to Midland Credit Management. I send the letter (below) certified mail, return receipt - and the same day I received the delivery receipt I received a settlement offer, but the date on their letter was 2 days before the date mine was written. My questions is do I respond to their settlement offer (which was only $1.99 more than what I initially offer) with another PFD, or wait to see if they respond to my PFD?

Also - has anyone had any luck with PFD's with Midland?

All insight is appreciated!

I have recently viewed a copy of my credit report and found that your agency is reporting a collection account in my name, account #853430XXXX (the credit report does not list the full account number) in the amount of $337. Please be aware that that this is not an acknowledgment or acceptance of the debt as I have not sought validation of the account listed above, but an attempt to settle this alleged debt and save us both time & effort required by the validation process.
I am aware that MCM has the ability to report this debt to the credit bureaus as you feel necessary. I am also aware that you also have the ability to change or remove the information all together.
I am willing to pay the debt in full in return for your agreement to remove any and all information regarding this debt from the credit reporting agencies. If you agree to these terms, I will immediately send certified payment in the amount of $337 to Midland Credit Management and in exchange, will expect prompt removal of all information regarding this debt from all credit files and reporting agencies.
If you would be as kind as to accept this offer, please prepare a signed letter on your company’s letterhead stating that upon receipt of payment, Midland Credit Management will remove all information regarding this account from all credit files and credit reporting agencies and send it to me at the address listed above. If I do not receive a response within 30 days of the date listed above, I will assume that the offer is rejected and I will begin the validation process.
I sincerely thank you for your valued time and look forward to hearing from you so that we may resolve this matter amicably.
Best regards,
