I had a credit card machine from my bank that I had no problems with... in walks this guy stating that he can save me BIG$$ and gave an impressive presentation. Out comes a 4 year "locked in" lease that I REFUSED to sign b/c I wasn't sure if I would be in business that long anyway... He leaves with the knowlege that if he could get his company to do a month-to-month deal I MIGHT be interested THEN and only THEN.

A week later, he shows back up telling me that his company agreed to a month to month deal and installed the credit card machine... He also offers to drop off my other credit card machine to the bank because "he would have to explain to them the law about having to let the customer switch if they wanted to do so..." two months later I notice that I am still getting debited for the bank machine... I call the bank and they explain that the machine and pad was NEVER returned to them!

I called the lease finance rep who assures me that he'll handle it TODAY... next month...another debit...same tap dance as before I'll handle it... HE STOLE MY BANKS CREDIT CARD MACHINE! I'll have to pay $850.00 for it eventually when they finally find where to serve me.

We're 4-5 months in now, during which time he drops off a check imager and I am sick of their company, my bank calling to get the machine back and their "policy" of calling you 8 times per day per contract (I have 2 = 16x day) no matter what you've made arraingments for! They explain that I can't get out b/c I have signed (2) 4 year leases with them! BS! I told them I didn't sign a d**n thing!

They forwarded copies of the FORGED leases to me and an affidavit a mile log which I had to sign my signature to a hundred times and ways... I sent it all back in and NEVER heard back. When I call and ask about it they say that they never received it. SO I SENT THEM COPIES OF EVERYTHING AGAIN. They still say that they didn't receive them...

I TRIED TO STOP PAYING THEM. THEY CALLED ME 16 TIMES (NO EXAGGERATION) PER DAY NON-STOP. THEY PUT A (2)30 and (1)60 day "HIT" on my credit to "SHOW ME THAT THEY CAN DESTROY MY CREDIT!" I have spoken to local law enforcement and two attorneys... no one wants anything to do with it so I hope that one day someone will find this who can and will get my money back from 4 years of extortion!

Settlement with CITI Lease Finance Group

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

Thanks to information obtained from this website on how to deal with this company, CITI, without admission on their part of any wrong doing, has "IN WRITING" released me from any further obligations and has also agreed to remove any and all negative information regarding their transaction from my credit report. I'm still out $$$ but the cost of the civil suite for a couple thousand dollars alone isn't worth the payoff against the corporate giant. The combination of the $ and restoring my reputation was! I just hope the police catch up with their "independant contractor" soon so that justice can prevail and I can finally put this ordeal behind me.

CIT LEASE FINANCE GROUP chicago illinois

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

After reporting CIT lease finance group to the BBB in Chicago (to which they have over 600 unanswered complaints, I was told), the BBB in Asheville, the NC Attorney General and the NC FBI field office and the Illinois Attorney General it seems that they have now cried ENOUGH and have "as a courtesy," terminated the agreement between us. They still haven't had their rep return my Banks credit card machine, taken the negative information off of my credit report or offered any kind of reimbursement for almost 3 years of extortion thus the fight continues!

The Attorney Generals Office is already "sick of hearing about CIT Lease Finance Group."

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

SO----CALL, CALL, CALL!!! Everyone on here should make NO MORE THAN "ONE" call to them per day and only if you have the finances to do so. REJOICE! The gavel of justice is about to fall! I heard it in her voice! Lisa Madigan is the Attorney General for the State of Illinois. Her address is 100 West Randolph Street Chicago, IL 60601. The office phone number is (312) 814-3000 You can also file your complaint online at their web address that is easily searchable.

CIT Lease Finance Group Chicago Illinois

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

I was told by the BBB that there are currently over 600 open complaints against CIT lease finance group. When they responded to me through the BBB they apparently use a cut and paste your name in the form system to answer the volume of complaints because they had left someone elses name in three different places within their response form that should have been addressed to me. They also R-E-F-U-S-E to sign their real names to the forms if they sign them at all.

BLATANT HARASSMENT!

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

I filed a report with the BBB day before yesterday and found out that CITI LEASE FINANCE GROUP has well over 300 other unanswered complaints against them at this time.
CITI LEASE FINANCE GROUP found out about the complaint to the BBB yesterday and in retribution, they have called and deliberatly hung up on me 17 times yesterday alone! I plan to record every, single harassing call today. When I spoke to their telephone operator yesterday, he stated that it didn't matter with whom I complained to, the BBB, RipoffReport, EVEN THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE, they were going to continue to call regardless!

I tracked down the guy that forged my name to the leases via the internet... he had moved 100 miles away and changed all of his phone numbers... and he agreed to reassign the leases to someone else BUT EVEN THAT F-A-C-T HASN'T STOPPED THEM FROM HARASSING ME!

The guy on the telephone had said that I couldn't sue them because in their contract was an arbitration clause that I would have to pay all the expense to and from Chicago...their attorneys fees etc...

Funny, my attorney said since their representative forged my signature, there was no legal binding contract for arbitration or anything else! I can't wait to get that $2500.00 retainer fee paid--- THEN IT'S ON!
