MBF Leasing - Vericomm Organized Crime Syndicate? New York New York
Sometime in Feb of 2006 my son was approached by a salesman who worked for Vericomm. The salesman told my son he had a great deal and it would cost us much less in fees for using his company.
The salesman then came to me and explained that there would be a fee for the credit card equipment but it would be refunded to us each month so that the equipment would cost nothing.
He gave us his cell phone number in case we had any problems. After the first month when our rebate check for $169.00 did not come we called him and he said two checks had been written and were in the mail. During the second month when the checks had not come we called and his phone was disconnected.
I then called Vericomm and they said that they do not have any program where they rebate money for equipment leases and that the salesman no longer works for them.
I called consumer protection and sent paperwork to the Vermont Attorney General. Vericomm was sent a letter to refund all money that they had taken from me.
I received a refund of $338.00 the same amount MBF Leasing had taken.
I told MBF Leasing to stop taking money from my account they said "Read your lease". They continued to take money from my account and I was no longer using the equipment. I went to my bank and signed a form to not allow MBF leasing to take money from my account. That stopped them for one month. The next month they changed the amount they were withdrawing and my bank did not catch it and neither did I. This went on for about 8 months. MBF Leasing stole approximatley $1800.00 from me. After finally stopping them,all the phone calls started and said I owed them $5900.00.
As of this writing I just got back from a brief court appearance in New York City where they have taken me to civil court. I have filed an answer to their
accusations and filed a counterclaim asking for return of all money taken and punitive treble damages. My court date is July 8. I s there any lawyer who would be willing to help me pro bono?
