Complaint Review: First Data Global Gateway
First Data Global Gateway1307 Walt Whitman Road, Melville, N.Y. 11747 Melville, New York United States of America
First Data Global Gateway First Data Credit Card Processing Signed up thru Wells Fargo first, cancelled contract within 24 hours. Took 3 months of fighting to clear that mess. Later signed up thru Sam's Club for an "NO CONTRACT - CANCELL ANYTIME FOR $8.00/MONT Melville, New York
*Consumer Suggestion: Suggestions
I later signed up with Sam's Club, for a "no contract, cancell anytime, eight dollars per month flat fee, with a minimum percentage fee for each transaction". The initial cost was approximatelly $200.00 for set-up. Neither Sam's Club nor First Data ever said that I needed a secured on-line, independent device in order to be approved for payment processing outside of my home.
Well, in three and one half months, I processed a total of $2,000.00 dollars, in increments of 1,000, 500 and 500; with an average cost of $300.00 from First Data. In addition to the secured internet charges from my mobile phone company. When I called to express my disatisfaction, Sam's Club and First Data said I had agreed to an "early termination fee", since I kept the service past the three month trial period. I tried to reason with both companies but it was useless. I made the decision to close the bank account in order to avoid additional withdrawals and now I anticipate that my credit rating will suffer. The actions of First Data, are unethical to say the least. I now believe that banks and Sam's Club Merchant Services must receive a percentage and commission from each transaction.
