named Prestige Payment Systems. They convinced me that they would save me $200-$250 a month on my processing charges. I said, if you can save me that much then I will change process company. During this time I was told that the $200-250 savings would have to include a credit card machine. I told them I didn't need it and would not use it, they replied you will still save money with the equipment and in order to receive the savings I was forced to receive the equipment. I guess I should have not proceeded, but I figure they stated I would still have a huge savings even with the machine.
A couple months later I began using the new processing company and I received my first bill after processing $2700 worth of business and I noticed I was charge over $400. Now normally I pay $600 for processing over $15,000 a month. So I was shocked when I received a bill for over $400. I called and asked why I was charged so much and they replied, "that's what you signed up for." I stated, "no you told me I would save money and so for you are wrong and it is pretty clear I will be spending more money." I then asked them where the $250 credit I was to receive for canceling my other processing company. They stated, "we usually wait until the customer requested it." So I requested it; 120 days past I never received my credit and my prices were crazy. I called and cancel the contract due to breech of contract along with bait and switch. They canceled it and I never heard anything from them. Now I have a bill from First Data for over $6,000. I explained that I was involved in a bait and switch along with a breech of contract and they stated we are sorry but you leased equipment from us. I then replied that I sent the equipment back to their company and no longer have it. They are now
telling me they will settle for $3,000. I don't understand why they can't see that I was brought into the entire agreement under false information that was provided to me via another company. Since the contract was illegally represented by Prestige I am getting punished from this company and they will not settle or cancel my contract due to the bait and switch tactic that influenced my actions.
