good day. Encore Capital Group was prosecuted in New York for violating
consumer protection laws. The name Encore Capital Group may not be familiar,
but via their subsidiary, Midland Funding, file thousands of debt collection
lawsuits in south Florida every year. To settle claims that Midland Funding
acted improperly in it’s attempt to collect a debt, it has agreed

in New York. If you or someone you know has been sued by Midland Funding
or another debt collector, contact our office, we may be able to help.
