I am a small business owner in Illinois. In October of 1998 I entered into a lease agreement for a cappuccino machine with a local company. I was not given copies of these documents at the time of signing. I have requested full copies of these documents from both the coffee company and the leasing company by regular and certified mail to no avail. The coffee company disabled the equipment by removing the grinder and refusing to provide a manual. I continued making payments and requesting documents for one year. Finally, I advised the leasing company that no further payment would be made until documentation was provided. My credit has been damaged and I still have not received documents.
