Intuit GoPayment Merchant Center Holding half the funds charged on credit card. They want personal info, ie; my bank statements, utility bills, customer info, etc... Unknown Internet
One of my regular customers decided to pay by credit card as many customers do. This amount was around $1600 for services rendered in the repairs and maintenance performed on machinery.
This is an e-mail I received from them yesterday. What business do they have with the remainder of my money?

Date of Transactions: 06/xx/2013 Amount Delayed: $1681.50 Intuit Case Number: xxxxxxx Holding funds in a case like this is standard practice, but we know that doesn't make waiting any easier. The good news is that you can help speed things up.
