Northern Leasing Systems, Criminal Activity New York New York
I owned a business several years ago. I signed the lease with Northern Leasing Systems, Inc. and now for the last two years I have been paying even though I am no longer in business. The print on my lease is to small to read with the naked eye.
Recently, I have proof that Northern Leasing Systems, Inc. has fraudulently gained access to my personal checking account and began debiting money without my permission. This has proven to be a blessing in disguise as I consider it criminal activity under the laws of New York and the Federal Government. It has given me the mechanism I need to stop paying on my contract and now I have evidence of criminal activity and a breach of contract on the part of Northern Leasing Systems Inc.
I am surely destined to confront the scoundrels in a New York state Court. I could use the help of any and all people who have been ripped off by these people. Write me at 6013 (((REDACTED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES))) if you want to help.
What I am requesting is an affidavit signed by you explaining how you were ripped off so I may show the judge other damaged people and show a trend of bad faith actions on the part of Northern Leasing Systems Inc.
According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.
If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.
Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!
DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.
And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.
Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the chargetruth.
If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the
