Complaint Review: Eschelon merchant services
Eschelon merchant services8125 N 23rd Ave Suite 200 Phoenix, Arizona United States of America
Eschelon merchant services merchant services Very deceiving, won't provide company name. SCAM--Found it on google with their phone#. Phoenix, Arizona
*Consumer Comment: Merchant services
Britney Newby called, claiming she's from our merchant company, called merchant services. That's not even the name of our merchant company--obviously a scam/telemarketing. Gave a "merchant account #" which is also false, not matching any of our merchant numbers. Phone# she gave me to call back was 480-719-4421
When I called the # back, I did so by blocking my # first with *67.
Ms. Newby never answered her phone, so I dialed for the operator, some guy named Nick answered. I asked him to provide the legal name of their business, because it is impossible for them to be called just
"Merchant Services" and must provide me a legal business name. He refused and said the only way for him to disclose any information to me is if I provide my merchant # so he can pull my file. I wasn't born yesterday!!! But these guys are deceiving people by claiming to be who you work with, but they're really just a telemarketing scam! ***Do NOT Provide Any Personal Information To Them***
This Nick guy wouldn't let me speak either--just kept talking over me and wouldn't answer any questions--even after I said I wouldn't give any of my info until he stated the legal name of the business they called me from and the true reason for their call. He still declined to give me that info--so I explained to him that I do not give my info to telemarketers and this would be reported online.
Do NOT trust these people or this company!
Through some research on google, I found out the company name is Eschelon in Arizona (eschelonms.com)
When I called their customer service, the young girl who claimed to be a "manager" didn't care to hear how the sales department is deceiving potential clients--she just kept saying she would disconnect the call if I did not provide her my information. That is hilarious!!! What a dead giveaway for a scam. I tried to tell her how Nick wouldn't provide the company name, so why would I trust them to provide my company name or number? Give me a break here! Why in the world would I give you my info if you can't even tell me your company name?! This is going to be posted all over the internet. Guess it's time to change that company name yet again! Good luck folks!
Do NOT give your information to anyone who calls you stating they are from "Merchant Services"
