Why does Midland Credit Management appear on my credit report?
If Midland Credit Management appears on your credit report, then one of your accounts has been sold to Midland Credit Management. When a creditor sells an account to Midland Credit Management, then all legal rights associated with that account are also transferred. Even though your original account may have been closed, your obligation is still valid and due to Midland Credit Management.

What do I do if I want this account deleted or not reported?
If you have only recently been notified that your account has been purchased by Midland Credit Management and credit reporting has not yet started, then you have a few options. After sending the initial notice about the acquisition of your account, Midland Credit Management will not report your account to the credit bureaus for the first six months of servicing. If during those six months you make a payment and continue making payments on your account until it is resolved, we will never report to the credit reporting agencies.
If Midland Credit Management has already started reporting your account to the credit bureaus, we will request your account be deleted when the account is resolved.
We’re required to delete our credit reporting tradeline seven years after the original delinquency date, regardless of the paid status. This time frame is shorter in certain states.

I have seen ads that say I can eliminate my debt without paying Midland Credit Management, is it true?
There are dozens of credit repair organizations that claim to have a quick solution to all of your credit woes. For a fee, these companies will attempt to clean-up your credit, often by filing frivolous disputes to credit reporting agencies and to your creditors. By doing this, they may temporarily change what is on your credit report, but it is not necessarily a long-term solution.
If you have a valid concern about your debt, let us know. We want to make sure we only collect on valid and accurate debts. You can visit our Consumer Resolution Center and file a formal dispute directly with us. We do not recommend paying someone to dispute your debt when you can do it for free directly with us.

How will paying off my account impact my credit report/score?
