My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Illinois
My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: New York or Illinois
Hi there -
I have a case in which a company was to bill me on a monthly basis for a service.
Six months later, they have not billed me at all. They had all the required information to do so, proper debit card to charge and signed contract.
They admittedly had an office error that resulted in my account not getting billed every month.
They now would like me to pay them what I owe, which amounts to roughly $1900 (including a setup fee which they never billed me for). If they were to bill me my manageable $200 dollars a month accordingly to contract, that would have been much more manageable to me.
Do they have the right to collect these previous amounts, even though they never asserted their right to bill me accordingly to contract? The contract says that I am to be billed monthly, not once ever six months, and I feel that if they were to send me a bill summing up the past six months, that would be in violation of the contract.
