Leased a sign for my small business for approx. 4 yrs. When I moved my business, I called Signtronix and one person told me I had to send the sign back, so as it got closer to the date to send it back, I callled again to make sure of the address to send it to. That time, I was told I didn't need to send it back, it was mine. I was relieved. So, I sold the sign to someone for not much, but I didn't need it and it was better than nothing. Then, when I rec'd. a bill, I called them and reminded them I had talked to someone there and I was told it was mine to keep and that my lease was up. They denied this and said I must pay $300 to get out of my lease (therefore admitting it could be cancelled). But, at that time I knew I was right and said I don't owe anything more since I had sent a letter to them long before telling them that I was cancelling my lease and therefore had done what I was supposed to do, etc. They continued taking the payment out of my checking acct. for approx. 3 months before I caught it. I had the bank stop payment on future withdrawals and then they keep sending me monthly bills stating that I now owe about 1,000.oo. (130.00/mo.) And they call me about every day at work and cell phone to call them and speak to Angel. They have recently sent me a notice saying my account will be turned over to a credit collection agency if I don't pay. And that they lease is non'cancellble!!!! Indefinite!!! I'm supposed to pay for a 1,000.oo sign for the rest of my lfe? I'm not paying them a dime more!!! If anyone knows what I should do next, please let me know?
I assume since they haven't turned me over to a collection agency is that they know they can't enforce it. There is a class action lawsuit going on now against them which I am a part of.
