Legal Question in Consumer Law in Florida

I attempted to acquire a credit card scanning machine for my business. In order for me to receive the machine, I had to sign a lease agreement. I signed the lease agreement for credit card scanning equipment, that stated that the contract was uncancallable. I would not have a problem payment for the equipment but I never received the equipment and the company is still attempting to charge me for the lease agreement. I have informed them that I never received the equipment and they stated that it did not matter because I signed the agreement. Do I have any legal stance to have the contract canceled and recoup the funds that the have taken?

They are full of you know what. If they did not deliver the machine you do not owe anything. They have breached the lease agreement by not delivering the leased property.

Because they did not deliver the machine they have breached the contract. Make sure you retain a copy of the contract along with any letters, emails, faxes, or other notes of communication you may have had with them.
