*Author of original report: Update.
On March 29th I received a letter dated March 25th, mailed March 26th, informing me that SKS had purchased leases from Northern, and that I allegedly owe $97.63 in "certain taxes".
I was able to put a stop payment on the debit before it went through (it was pending). I have my old paperwork at home, but I did send a letter via fax (and can prove it) that I had agreed to the buyout amount of the lease in May of 2008, and that obligation was met in full and on time.
I have filed a complaint with the BBB (SKS presently has zero complaints on file with them - people, please file complaints if you want this practice to stop). I will also be contacting my state Attorney General as well as the New York Attorney General.
It seems as though many people with old leases are suddenly finding themselves being relieved of money. This cannot be legal or legitimate.
When I contacted Northern Leasing directly, they faxed a copy of my lease (I have it at home too) and a payment schedule showing all payments were made except the down payment which was made by check. When I asked for a detail showing how much taxes were paid and/or owing, I was told they would fax that over too, but I did not receive anything. They faxed my contract and payments made within 5 minutes of my first call, but the second call requesting the specifics has yielded nothing.
Anyone that got snookered into a lease for equipment with this entity, already paid several times over, the value of whatever they were buying. I refuse to pay them another dime. This practice needs to be stopped.
