they say even though I sent machine back I still am obligated to the lease,i sent a certified letter to them outlining the fact that the rep lied and presented this as a credit card processing agreement, and the equipment was free, now they are just calling,and not always leaving messages

You may want to get an attorney to represent you in getting out of the lease. If you signed the lease, the lease controls what your options are. In other words, the lease should have language in it as to termination, terms, etc. You would need to read through the lease (or have an attorney review it) to better advise you as to what your options are in this scenario.
