This also happened to me today. I got a debit from on my Wells Fargo Checking acct for -$95.52. I had equipment with Northern Leasing from 1998-2002 which was closed and finalized. I still have the same bank acct which is how they debited my acct UNAUTHORIZED for this or any other amount. It also triggered a $35.00 over draft fee as I wasn't expecting.
After searching Northern Leasing and SKS online, I see that this FRAUD is being committed all over the country. I reported it to my bank and I am following the instructions that other victims have recommended. I have already filed a complaint with the New York Atty General, California Atty General, will be filing a local police report, filing a report with the local FBI office (as the fraud crossed state lines) and filing a report with the District Atty of New York and Dist Atty of Los Angeles. Iteresting that the New York Atty General & California Atty General WERE AWARE OF BOTH these CON-ARTIST companies. They WERE ALREADY IN THE SYSTEM AND BEING INVESTIGATED!
PLEASE E V E R Y O N E call your Atty General in the state you live in AND the New York AG where they are located. Call the FBI and make a report and with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). If EVERYONE makes a complaint they will get what's coming to them. Also, there is a Class action suit underway. Call the number on the website www.NorthernLeasingClassAction.com (Chittur & Associates, PC) and give the atty the paperwork he requests. Hopefully this will prevent these CREEPS from continuing this scam and FABRICATING FAKE FEES in the future. They will continue to committ this FRAUD if people don't complain.
It only takes a few minutes to participate in the reporting of this abuse. Also, unless you close your bank account, it is likely that they will attempt to illegally withdrawal more funds in the future, possibly under a different company name. STAY ON THIS CASE EVERYONE INVOLVED!!
