Complaint Review: MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC. - WARREN MICHIGAN
- MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC. P.O. BOX 2000 WARREN, MICHIGAN United States
MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC. MCM, MIDLANDCREDITONLINE.COM Gained my confidence then committed FRAUD! WARREN MICHIGAN
*Consumer Comment: Fraud. That's An Interesting Word!
This company is shameless! Initially, I thought it was an empathetic company, who had purchased a debt I owed to Synchrony Bank (Amazon).
I know that the Synchrony Bank Card is a legitimate debt. That is why I entertained the idea that they were sincere in helping me to get back
on track with my payments. I fell behind on this card when my mom became critically ill and I was taking care of her in Hospice care for (7) months!
I just literally lost track of anything I had to focus on, except prior to that, i paid more than my monthly payments, but always as agreed. My best friend (Mom) was my primary focus during that time! Well she passed seven months later and I was extremely depressed. ( I am still in mourning...but functioning now!) I received a call from MCM about a month or so after her funeral. The guy who contacted me was not rude, and I was informed that the company had purchased my account from Synchrony Bank. I was now supposed to deal directly with them. I told him I did not have the means to pay the debt off in full. I was told they would work it out with me where it would be manageable. I agreed to the payment to get the first and second payments and then would be on a scheduled monthly payment. I did inform them I was not yet working but looking for a position and may be able to begin regular modified payments as agreed.
Then the drama begins! I did sign the authorization to allow deductions from my account on the agreed one payment a month.
Then I get a call ( from the same Midland Credit Management) who now has access to my bank information! So they pull a duo team tag on me. The guy who had initially gained my confidence to pay the legitimate bill (or whatever you want to call it. It wasn't that much when I last paid the bill, but since I lost track of it, I figured there would be additional interest charges. But even that should not have been that much more!)
They now said I owe on a CreditOne Credit Card! That account offered me a $250.00 check to deposit into the credit card account, because any charge I ever made was "ALWAYS" paid off so no interest charges would accrue. They made me the offer for the money, because of my "great" paying history! I NEVER cashed or deposited that check! I did not need the funds and did not want any additional debt. I had less than 125.00 balance on that card. But now that MCM has the debt, I now owe....according to them over $1200.00!! They told me if I would pay a little bit on it, they would come back and just forgive the fabricated charges!! I told them I did not want to pay that account a dime, because that is fraudulent what they have done! They began taking UNAUTHORIZED PAYMENTS out of my account EVERY WEEK!! I have alerted my bank to this situation, but one of the actions was a transfer -SOMEHOW they were able to transfer, NOT debit money out of my account!!! How is that legal? I called them and no one called me back about it either! I don't know how companies are allowed to just squash consumers and get away with their dirt!!
