On Jan 19th I spoke to Gary Bishop at Elite Systems regarding a Vending machine business opportunity, after spending several hours on the phone he told me that I can place a $500 refundable deposit to start the process and I would be contacted by a locator to pick out locations for the vending machines and receive a package on 1/21 outlining the deal.

I received a call from the locator Jay Baird on 1/20, it sounded like great idea and liked his service for vending machine locations. Prior to using Jay I decided to do some research online so on 1/20 after speaking to Jay, I Googled his name and stumble upon negative reviews and rip-off reports.  Immediately after seeing this I contacted Gary at Elite systems notifying him of my findings and my intentions to cancel the whole purchase, he said they never had a problem with Jay’s work before and he is unaware of any of these issues and they were never involved in the past, but he said he would call me back after doing their own investigation.

I get a call from Gary on 1/21 saying he has done the research and found what I was referring to and said he will have another Locator contact me I said at that point I really wanted my refund but he convinced me to hear what the new locator service provider had to say and I can research them I asked if I had a time frame for my deposit to be refunded and he said no as long as I don’t receive any of the machines my deposit is refundable. At that point it was late Friday so I wouldn’t be contacted by the Locator till Monday.

Gary called me to follow up on Saturday 1/22 to see if I received the package and I mentioned to him after some more serious thinking I decided I still wanted a refund and cancel the whole deal, he acknowledged that I will receive the refund within 3-5 business days.

I get a call from Gary on Monday 1/24 saying he is processing my refund and should receive it shortly. I waited till 1/31 called Gary and asked why I haven’t receive my refund yet, he said it would take a few days before it was processed but he assured me it was being done and I should see the credit on my account 2/3 or 2/4 the latest.  On 2/4 I look at my account and still no credit I called Gary but didn’t get a response so I decided to submit a dispute.

On 2/7 I get a call from Gary saying he was returning my call and he will look into why I haven’t received my credit and will call me back. Today is 2/9 and I am yet to hear something from Gary Bishop, I tried calling again but left a message.

At this point I believe almost all Vending Machine companies are crooks I almost got taken for a ride by a different company prior but thanks to this site I decided not to go with Eivor Johansson. I checked for Elite Systems but found nothing on the Net so here I am posting for everyone else to see. Buyer Beware!

Contact the Houston Attorney Generals Office!!

AUTHOR: JB - (United States of America)

I recently received a packet from the attorney general.  I am working on the paperwork and reciepts to send in.  If you have been ripped off by this guy, call the attorney generals office, Houston..  I did get a refund but it took forever, but I did not get all of my money back.  Gary told me that he would personally send me the refund for the money that I laid out to pay the locator.  Due to the fact that Gary Bishop never sent my vending machines, I lost my locations..  This guy is a theif and I will do my part to see to it that he pays for all he has done!!

Gary Bishop!

AUTHOR: JB - (United States of America)

Well I posted last month that Gary Bishop was to refund me the $400.00 that I laid out for the locator to locate spots for my vernding machines when the deal fell through.  Well here it is mid April and NOTHING.. Gary Bishop will not return my phone calls or emails.  I was lucky to get the refund for the money I paid for the machines, but let me tell ya, it was a job.  It took over 6 months for them to refund me my money and it came in dribs and drabs.  He only owes me $400.00 but If it costs me ten times that to put that crook behind bars, I will do it!!!!  Elite System Serives has complaints out the kazoo with the better business bureau in the past few months.  I would suggest filing a complaint with them if he owes you money.  I have been in contact with the District Attorney in Houston and it seems like a good avenue to follow, we are off to a good start there.  If anyone has a class action suit, count me in.  I've exhausted all of my efforts and dont have time to chase that crook for my money.. but I do think he needs to be stopped!!!

Class Action

AUTHOR: Maggie - (United States of America)

Wanted to know if anyone has thought about a class action suit against this company. I have had my run in with the company and have been trying to get my money back. If anyone can let me know what they think about this please tell me. I know we will probably not get our money but maybe they will go to prison.

No refunds coming from these crooks! Gary Bishop = liar

AUTHOR: Andy - (United States of America)

Please don't believe that people are getting refunds!!!  Unless you paid with a credit card and filed a dispute with the card issuer, you won't be getting anything back.

Gary Bishop is a crook.  He steals hard earned money - and then lies for months on end about refunds that never arrive.  I have never dealt with a more dishonest company or individual in my life.  The excuses after excuses become comical after a while.

If you have similar problems, please reach out to me.

Someone stopped by their address for me, and the place is empty.  A dang crooked business and even more crooked people you talk to on the phone.

I have a criminal complaint in with the Houston District Attorney that will eventually place the lying moron Gary Bishop behind bars.  Please do the same.  It is some simple paperwork to fill out.  It won't get your money back, but it will investigate his criminal activity and stop it!

Received refund !!

AUTHOR: JB - (United States of America)

I recently received my refund of 5,300 for vending machines I purchased from Elite System Services, account manager Gary Bishop.  The deal didnt work out and I waited months for my refund but I DID receive it.  I was also promised by Gary Bishop that the company would be refunding me the $400.00 that I paid a locator to find locations for my machines.  When the machines did not arrive on the date agreed upon I lost the $400.00 that I paid the locator.  Now Elite System Services does not want to refund my $400.00.  I spoke to Gary Bishop last week and he told me that he will reinburse me the $400.00 out of his own pocket. He knows that it was no fault of mine that the deal did not work out and I find it honorable that he is going to do that.  I will update again when I receive the refund.

YOUR GETTING RIPPED OFF BY THE p***k THAT IS GOING TO JAIL

AUTHOR: Rippedoffnpissedoff - (United States of America)

You are getting ripped off by these crooked bastards !  The whole bunch of them are nothing more than bottom feeding gutter trash losers ! They have all been indicted for FREUD and ordered to pay back $2,000,000 plus in damages !  Jennifer, David , Gary and all the rest of them have been caught, plead guilty and are back at it again under new names !  They bury their assets so you cannot collect from them civilly and they do 6 months in Hilton Prison !  What a scam !  Wish the mudderf**kers would rear their ugly mudderf**kin heads so I can take a swing at em !  BAM !  GRANDf**kIN SLAM if I catch em !
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH ANY OF THESE SCAMMERS ! TRUST ME ! 
You losers want to meet me in a dark alley somewhere where the mudderf**kin judges and jury can't see us ? Huh ? Huh ? c*m on grease balls !

Oh, if you are wondering, I have a $25,000 Plus judgement against all of them that is worth less than a sheet of TP because they hide all their assets.  Real game they got going on... but when they rear their heads, they will be sorry !  We got em !  !!!!!!!!
