Re: interesting midland credit managment letter received today...

The creditor/collection agency obviously is unable to verify the account. Which is why they need your help. Legally, since they are unable to verify, this account must be deleted from your credit files within 30 days of your dispute per the FCRA. If you send them documentation, then you will give them the ammunition they need to verify the account and keep it reporting negatively on your credit file for up to 7.5 years. Please do not send them anything. It is up to them to furnish the evidence and get it from the original creditor.

Did you dispute with CRA's or send a DV letter to them?
