Sirius/XM Ran My Credit Card For No Reason

September 17, 2014 Dirty Business, Manhattan 0

THE DIRTY ARMY:  Nik, on Monday, September 15, I authorized Sirius/XM to debit my checking account by the amount of 52.50 to pay a quarterly invoice. Instead, Sirius/XM debited $304.00 from my checking account. Because I am a school teacher and on a tight budget, the extra $252.00 that they took from my checking account caused some of the other scheduled debits to be rejected or bounce, caused extra penalties and fees for each rejection. On September 15, the same day, I contacted Sirius/XM “Listener Care” and explained that they had taken the extra $252.00 without permission and authorization and requested that it be returned immediately to my bank. I provided my debit card number to them on four occasions so they could do so electronically. Instead, they advised me that “policy” dictated that they refund the stolen funds in the form of a paper check that would take “five to ten business days” to process. Finding Number 1: Sirius/XM may wipe out your checking account upon their own whim. Finding Number 2: Once the mistake is pointed out to Sirius/XM, they will not act proactively to solve the issue. Finding Number 3: The prudent consumer will avoid doing business with this company, or will do so in peril of his/her resources.

Serena Williams Needs To Play Against The Men

September 12, 2014 Dirty Athletes, Manhattan, The Dirty 131

THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, women’s tennis is becoming a joke. Nobody can beat Serena Williams because she is a dude from Compton. She has so much testosterone in her body that she even grunts like a man. It’s so not fair for the cuter white chicks in miniskirts. My vote is for Serena to play in the men’s league. The competition will be tougher and woman’s rights of equal pay blah blah blah will be fulfilled.

That would be kind of cool and ground breaking. Serena Williams should totally accept your challenge.- nik

SCAM ALERT — Northern Leasing Systems, Inc aka MBF Leasing LLC Is A Scam

September 3, 2014 Anchorage, Dirty Business, Manhattan 6

THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, please post this to save other small hard working businesses – Northern Leasing Systems, Inc aka MBF Leasing LLC falsifies contracts and creates a non cancelable, excessive fees, forges signatures, loopholes the law with their own scamming attorney in New York.

This company came to my place of business offering a lower rate on credit card processes and to provide a point of sale system (POS). At the time, the salesman seemed very trustworthy and instead of reading the contract thoroughly, he made sure I received the short and sweet version to understand what all the fine line states. It seemed reasonable, so I agreed to the lease.

When agreeing and signing the contract, the salesman would not give an immediate copy, nor allow me to make a copy with my available copier. Instead, he came back 3 days later with a copy, which was not the original contract that was signed. When approached of the observation, he stated that the other documents weren’t important. Again, I felt the salesman was quiet trustworthy.

After using that service paying $230 a month for 2 1/2 years to lease the system, plus unusual fees throughout the duration, I sold my restaurant and cancelled the lease. This company continued to debit money from my account and when confronted, they explained that I still owe them 2 1/2 years more of service and that the contract is non cancelable. They sent me a copy of the lease agreement and that’s when I noticed that the signatures on each page were not from me.

The company tried taking somewhere around $6,500 from my account, but I was able to reverse the transactions with my bank. They tried again, so I had to reverse the transactions once again and then closed my business bank account.

Now, almost 2 years since I’ve had a business, Northern Leasing has managed to file a judgement with the state of New York, although I live in Alaska. The judgement aloud them to take the $6,500 plus an addtional $6,500 since the state of New York law says that the winner of a judgement receives 200% of said judgement to assist with any occurred fees throughout the process.

So far I have filed with the Attorney General’s office of New York and the A.G. of Alaska for Consumer Fraud. I also have 2 lawyers working on this case. I am using the recent lawsuit won by New York A.G. to assist with my case, since the filing of that lawsuit falls in with my situation. One of the statements within the settlement is as follows:

“As part of the settlement, the companies agreed to fully refund the more than $3.6 million they drained from their customers’ accounts in the spring of 2011.They also agreed to refrain from any efforts to collect the remaining approximately $7 million from customers targeted in the scheme – in some cases, up to 11 years after their victims’ equipment leases had expired. The companies are required to make automatic refunds to certain former customers and there will be a claims process for all other customers. Each customer participating in the settlement will receive 100% of the amount debited.”

Also, the attorney that the bank says has a judgement against my account is Joseph Sussman, which has the same address as Northern Leasing. Imagine that! Just look his name up and see what results you get about this attorney.

Hope this helps others when trying to fight against this fraudulent company. They need to be stopped and I will invest all I have to ensure this company does not screw me over.
