I can't believe this company is still allowed to be in business. I have also been scammed by this company. Not once, but TWICE! There was something about the the sign up that made me question the woman about Bond Corp being affiliated in anyway with a company called A1 Leasing and she said she had never heard of them and NO, they were NOT affiliated in any way.

I had had a brick and mortar business where a guy had come into my shop and presented me with a credit card merchant services program that sounded good. I agreed to the terms, signed the lease, got the equipment and was, initially happy with the program. The fees were deducted from my checking account each month. After awhile, the equipment became outdated and I could not contact anyone. The contact information I had was no longer any good. So, I went with another company. I sent the outdated equipment back but was still having fees deducted from my checking account. I ended up having to close my account to prevent this unreachable entity from taking monthly deductions from my account.

Almost a year later, I started getting calls from a collection agency representing the A1 Leasing Company stating that I was being taken to collection for leasing fees I still owed. ???? To make a long story short, I paid the fees (over $2K) just to keep my credit intact. But, the interesting thing was the man who was doing the collection was actually very nice. He informed me that A1 had the right to renew the lease after the two year agreement at ANY rate they so choose unless I cancel the lease IN WRITING prior to the end of the first two year contract. All this is was in very small, half tone print on the back of the original lease I signed with A1.

Turns out, it is the same way with this insane Bond Corp and Startup Essentials. So, if you are trying to keep your credit intact by biting the bullet and letting them grab $150.00 or so a month of your hard earned cash, be forewarned that if you do not send them notice in writing (and I would highly recommend sending it return receipt requested), they have the right to renew your contract for whatever amount they want and you don't even have to sign a contract. You already have!

I am part of the class action suit against Bond Corp but haven't heard anything about the outcome of the case. Does anyone have any info on that? I really want to stop letting them get my money but can't afford to have my credit messed up. But, I also can't afford to keep letting them take my money.

The laptop I got is also a piece of junk. Barely used and it won't work half the time. When I told them I already had a laptop, their reasoning was that the one they were sending me was set up and equipped to do on line transaction with the JP Morgan banking system that would be used. Get real!!!

I wouldn't want to be those people...karma can be nasty when you are.

AUTHOR: Lostwages - (U.S.A.)

I talked to the lawyer, David Grossman, who is working on this class action suit against the Bond Corp. to find out how the suit was coming. He resonded that as long as a person was CURRENT with their payments, there would be a three month payment refund to all individuals involved witih this suit.

Makes me wonder....whose side is HE on? That's it? That's less than 1/8th of a four year payment commitment refund! Does the rest go to him for his compensation for taking the case? And, that's only if you are current in your payments so, in order to qualify for this "compensation" you have to be feeding the beast. Hardly worth it. Upon questioning this, David Grossman become quite curt and unfriendly. FYI
