There was no communication from this company explaining any problem or requesting any additional information. We have made multiple phone calls to this company and either land in a mailbox that is full or receive no response to our message. After several phone calls I was finally able to obtain details on what information needed to be sent and who to send them to. Before we could even get that email sent, and email from Heather Campbell (Heather.Campbell@bankcardusa.com) arrived:
"I'm writing in regards to the merchant account and the funds on hold. The merchant account was approved for 100% keyed activity with an average ticket of forty eight dollars and monthly volume of three hundred dollars; the agreement also states all transactions will be for web hosting with a forty eight hour maximum fulfillment.
There are several concerns that Risk Management has that we feel need to be addressed;
You have processed sales that exceed the approved average ticket
You are more than double the approved monthly volume
Unfortunately, your personal credit is derogatory
Seeing the above listed concerns, Risk Management is no longer comfortable processing your company's credit cards. I will need you to issue a return to the two transactions that Risk Management is holding and obtain another form of payment. Once the returns are issued, the merchant account will be closed.
Please issue returns to the following credit cards"
We have left numerous messages for Heather and others at the company. We have sent documentation to verify the orders made on July 15th. There is still no response from anyone at the company. They have essentially destroyed our business and our livelihood and they appear to care less about us as customers.
If you are considering this company for merchant services, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN! They are unscrupulous and some of the worst con-artists I have ever dealt with in 28 years as a small business owner. I have already filed a complaint with the Santa Barbara Better Business Bureau where over 110 complaints have been filed against this company in the past 36 months.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANY REASON!
