I received a summons and complaint from Farrell & Seldin representing Midland Funding for a Household Financial account. I am in the process of filing my answer but I am not exactly sure what to put. I have never received anything in the mail from Midland Funding. They have called 2 times - once in 2013 and once in 2014. Both times I requested proof or confirmation of debt, they never sent anything. They kept referring to documentation sent in 2012 that I do not recall ever receiving. Midland Funding was showing on my credit report but I disputed it and after 30 days I received notification it was removed because Midland Funding never responded. Then in April of this year I received a letter from Farrell & Seldin stating they were collecting on the debt. I sent a certified letter to them requesting proof of the debt. All that they sent me was an Affidavit of Debt signed by someone with Midland Funding. The affidavit only lists an account number and a balance but nothing I have ever signed or proving that it belongs to me. Farrell & Seldin say the Affidavit of Debt is all they are required to provide unless this goes to court. Based on the lack of documentation and the inability to provide information to the credit bureau I believe it is best for me to file an answer to the summons based on insufficient evidence. My question is, based on the above information would it be best to fight back against Midland Funding? I know that Colorado's court system can be difficult. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
