*Author of original report: A1 leasing, Startup Essentials, Bond Corp
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 After awhile, the equipment became outdated and I could not contact anyone.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 I sent the outdated equipment back but was still having fees deducted from my checking account.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.
