SKS Associates out of NY, also tied to Lease Fiance Group, MSI Finance Group and Newcourt Financia,l illegally removed funds in the amount of $96.88 from our business account on March 29, 2011.

They claimed that an audit was conducted and it was determined that certain taxes & related fees due weren't collected.  I read and reread our contract from 2000 that was a four year contract that we kept for 8 years and we were debited each & every month the contract fee plus the applicable as noted above.

We canceled amicably our credit card machine in 2008 and all was cleared.  Suddenly 3 years later we receive the letter, and we attempted to amicably speak to the Customer Serivce individuals to no avail.

They have insulted us to the point that we must not know how to read a contract, and that we must not have their letter (Duh!  How would we know how to contact them and reference a lease number?????).

We have spoken to our bank whom we have a long-term relationship with, and more than 3 accounts.  They told us this company had the right to do this.  This is not true.

We will sue and want to put together a Class Action Lawsuit as everything I'm googling on this fraudulent business says they should be reported, sued, and put in jail.  Let's help each other!

No taxes are due in Illinois - we have proof


I started a Facebook page about this issue.  SKS Associates Raided My Bank Account.

One of our members, also in Illinois, has a letter from 2008 where Northern had actually refunded him for taxes accidentally charged to his account.

The letter states specifically that no taxes are due in his state.

As of today, a temporary restraining order was issued prohibiting SKS from further collection activity.

Please file complaints with the BBB, FTC and NY Attorney General.  Details are available on the aforementioned Facebook page.

This whole debacle is a scam anyway, but no taxes were ever due in Illinois - we have proof of that.
