WARNING!! Do not use this company. There is currently a class-action lawsuit against them for secretly overcharging it customers and adding an additional $4.50 to the monthly bill. I leased a sign through this company and was charged strange amounts each month. I stopped paying them and they started calling me and I told them that I would not give them another dime until they sent to me an itemized payment history. Of course they would not. The total cost of the sign didn't seem to reduce as I was paying each month, so I got supicious. They debit your checking account each month for the charges and will debit your bank account for added charges. I closed that account because they could not explain to me why I was being charged extra, and also why they charged me a tax amount for the sign. They now have filed a lawsuit against me in the state of New York because I refuse to pay them anymore money since they won't give me an itemized printout of all payments and charges. Well, I don't live in New York, not sure how that will work. STAY AWAY FROM NORTHERN LEASING SYSTEMS. Please read the lawsuit that is currently against them; Class Action upheld by judges decision in New York Supreme Court - Fraud with punitive damages. "A putative class action against Northern Leasing Systems, Inc., of New York City, asserting a fraudulent scheme to entrap small businesspersons fraudulently into equipment leases with undisclosed charges and onerous terms. Plaintiffs assert that Northern Leasing deceptively sells these leases to small businessmen through what appears to be a standard form one page lease, complete with signatures, and a personal guaranty. Thereafter, it routinely charges and collects much more than what is specified in the first page, and foists several other liabilities on the unsuspecting small businessmen. When small businessmen raise questions, Northern Leasing finally reveals the existence of 3 additional pages which make the lease irrevocable, onerous, and virtually indefinite. Routinely, these pages and their contents are never disclosed to the small businessmen at the inception, and are not incorporated into the lease. Nevertheless, Northern Leasing saddles small businessmen with all these terms and enforces them strictly. The Court has upheld the fraud claim, and the claim for punitive damages, ruling that the "allegations address more than a private wrong contending that defendants engaged in a course of conduct throughout the United States with such wanton dishonesty as to imply a criminal indifference to civil obligations." Pludeman v. Northern Leasing. A subsequent decision denied class certification, which decision is under appeal." Chittur & Associates, P.C. 286 Madison Avenue Suite 1100 New York, NY 10017 Telephone: 212-370-0447 Fax 212-370-0465 www.chittur.com According to the New York State Unified Court System, the Pludeman, Kevin vs. Northern Leasing Systems, goes back to court on June 12, 2007. I am not sure if this is the start of the class action trial or yet another pre-trial meeting. At least the case is moving forward. Thanks for your feedback. Attention New York Tax Enforcement I see the New York State Tax Enforcement visiting this site. You should really read this blog post. If any leasing customer of Northern Leasing has had "ad Valorem" taxes debited form their bank account by Northern Leasing and you have already paid your county or state taxes on the equipment. I suggest you file a report with the New York Tax Enforcement office (click here to file a report online), I have a feeling that Northern Leasing is pocketing the "taxes" they took from you and not reporting it to the state or county you live in nor are they remitting said taxes to the state of New York. The owners and directors are already in a civil fraud complaint in New York state, kind of gives reason that they might be cheating on their tax payments as well.
