Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In 2005 we agreed to try home source/GE money bank credit cards. We were told we had 90 days no risk to try there services.  After less than 60 days we called and told them it wasn't working. They sent UPS pickup for the equipment.  Everything went smoothly for 6 years and then in April of 2011 my checking account was debited for $77.17 times 4 equals $308.68.  When I called SKS Associates I was informed they had bought the lease agreements from Home Source and were collecting the interest and taxes on the rentals. I then explained the machines were retunred in less the 60 days and that they were debiting my account without my authorization. They said prove it. Beware if you have a business account at any bank in the good ol USA anyone with ACH License can take money out of your account without authorization and the bank will tell you that if you don't report it in 24 hours they cannot do anything. WOW! Our government at work. Crime does pay.

Many of us have been ripped off by this entity.

Visit the above mentioned FB page for information on how to get your money back.

There was a temporary restraining order issued on April 8/11 against SKS.  Even if you were hit before that, I suggest taking a copy to your bank and having them look at the page, and other sites like this one to show that this is indeed a widespread fraud.

Yours is a new twist, most of us got hit once, and for leases and lease/purchases on credit card processing terminals and electronic signs.

We suggest also reporting to the FTC, BBB and NY Attorney General.  Info is available on our site on how/where to file.
