texasbbj Posted October 4, 2019 Report Share Posted October 4, 2019 Basic Info Midland Funding Sued for account purchased from Synchrony Bank Amazon Account that I do not have believe is mine Attorneys for Midland in Houston at a PO BOX 46058 one being Peter Newman. They had a local attorney from this area show up in court with the offer to settle for $2800.00 which apparently about $1800 in principal and the rest in interest. Purchase agreement from Synchrony to Midland Aug 4, 2017 and delivered to seller by buyer on March 28, 2018. It appears the charge off by Synchrony on this account, occurred in Feb 2018 which does not fall in line with the purchase agreement dated Aug 4 2017 Original opening date for the account was stated for 2010 with Amazon. Suit filed June 11 this year by Midland. I responded with a General Denial and sent copy to Midland and filed with court in required time frame. Their local attorney was nice, offered full settlement (before court) which I rejected as I do not believe this account is mine and needed proof. I requested a continuance to seek legal advice and discovery and that was granted by the local JP Court in Texas. My next court date is set for middle November. My question is whether to pursue a defense of Arbitration of go thru the discovery route. Usual papers in their court documents with copies of the billing only, and shows last payment in August 16 2017. I have no papers of any of type or bank statements etc, as I was a victim of Hurricane Harvey in Rockport, Texas and lost everything, home, papers vehicles, RV, etc with the flood that occurred. I can provide more info if needed regarding their court papers. Just would like some referrals as to what direction to proceed at this point.
