Dispute it on all Credit Reporting Companies. They won't be able to verify the scam debt and they will remove it. Don't give them a dime!

Pushpin is a scam but don't ignore their threats!!

I bought a business in 1997 and then another business in 2001. We leased the (2) credit card processing machines from a 3rd party representing the parent company Northern Leasing or CIT if I remember correctly. We closed one business in 2002 and sold the other business the same year. Fast forward 9 years, 11 months and 24 days later and I get served by a process server. Pushpin was suing me in Cook County, Illinois for $4000 dollars or so. I couldn't believe it! Upon researching Pushpin, I find out that the son of the man who ran Northern Leasin or CIT was the president of Pushpin... Jay Cohen. Pushpin supposedly "bought" the debt from CIT. It's all a scam. After finding out they had default judgements on numerous unsuspecting clients, I sent all documents to the court to postpone the case until I could get legal counsel. I never received notice that the court had received my documents. The day before the trial was to happen, my dear wife contacted the Cook Count Court Clerks Office to verify they had received the documents. They stated someone signed for them but they didn't know where they were!!! They were very helpful and eventually found my documents but the judge had not seen them so we would go to trial. That day we retained a lawyer from Chicago and he was able to file the nessessary documents to postpone the trial. I wish I had known there were lawyers experienced with PushPin... the lawyer we retained, although he did a credible job, just didn't have the experience to deal with these snakes. The judge was also someone that was probably on the take with Pushpin. We ended up settling with Pushpin for around $1200 plus our lawyers fee of $750. I thought the lawyer was very reasonable for Chicago but I expected my case to get thrown out as the signature on the lease was not my signature. DO NOT sit back and think these snakes will go away if you get notices from their "company", be proactive!!! They will file in Cook County, Illinois and you will have to be there or have legal counsel to represent you... else they get a default judgement and will file in your state to put a lien on your property until they get their "ransom money". Do not ignore them!!! I was just reading a story that the NY Attorney General has filed suit against Pushpin... I pray that Pushpin is forced to repay all of the frivilous lawsuits against business owners.

Pushpin holdings llc

My husband & I sold our business to our partner. A week before our closing date notified the lease finance group to turn off the credit card machine on our closing date. On Aug 30th 2007 the credit card company turned off the machine. My partners lawyer stated on paper that he had got the credit card machine turned back on. When our partner ran the business into the ground is when the lease finance group started sending me threatening letters. I gave them the proof of fraud that was committed against me & still they keep up with there threats. They all need to be sued!!!!

Fraudulent attempt to collect

My husband has received 2 threatening letter from PUSHPIN HOLDINGS LLC trying to collect for equipment leasing. My husband has never leased any equipment for his business. He does autobody repair and has only accepted checks or cash. He certainly has never had a cash machine in his business. The state Prosecuting Attorney for the state of New York needs to prosecute these people to the full extent of the law so that the rest of us can heave a sigh of relief. I will be contacting the BBB in New York to file a complaint against them. We are also not going to respond to their threats. PUSHPIN HOLDINS can kiss my rosy red *** I hope they see this.

Just install Auto Redial on your Android device (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details...) and blow there phone up. We caused them to shut off their inbound line 3 hours early today with just 2 android devices.

Imagine if everyone who read this did the same to them. Their phone number is 888-271-****

I received two letters in one day. One to my maiden name that I haven't used in 8 years and one to my business that has been closed for six years, and they misspelled the name of the business. I'm with you...thye need to be brought down.
