Midland Funding, Encore Capital Group, Asset Acceptance Sued for Violating Consent Order
Published On: January 3, 2021
CFPB Sues Encore Capital Group, Midland Funding, Midland Credit Management, and Asset Acceptance Capital Corp for Collecting Debts Beyond Statute of Limitations without disclosing debts were uncollectable, and other illegal acts
MUSINGS BY DIANE:
Midland Funding and Asset Acceptance Capital are in the news AGAIN. In 2015 Encore and its subsidiaries (including Midland Funding and Asset Acceptance) signed a consent order acknowledging that they were suing consumers without providing the required loan documentation. These companies were knowingly suing consumers on debts that were noncollectable (beyond the statute of limitations). They promised not to continue with these illegal acts. Well, so much for promises – they continued these illegal acts.
You can bet that the complaints the CFPB and FTC know about are just the tip of the iceberg, because most consumers don’t know that many debt collectors are using illegal tactics to collect on debts, that may not even be their debts, or are completely uncollectable.

“My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner.” K.H.
I can’t say enough good things about Diane. The way she handled my not typical circumstances was amazing. I was very nervous to start the bankruptcy process but Diane just has a very comforting way of explaining the whole process. My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner. If you find yourself in a financial situation that you can’t correct on your own, please Call Diane Drain as soon as possible.

“Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event” R.A.
Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event, and selecting the right attorney can add to this stress. Diane and Jay were a pleasure to work with, and it is obvious that they are passionate about helping people get their life back on track. I would highly recommend them if you need a bankruptcy attorney.
