I have the misfortune of once again, having to explain my interaction with Jerry Harris of EVO Merchants and Lease Finance Group.
I must FIRMLY state, by COERCION that Mr. Harris with EVO and Lease Finance Group misre-presented the product and the terms of the arrangement for credit card equipment.
Mr.Harris, stated ?this was not a contract service?. This is on a month to month basis and no credit check would be run. If, I was dissatisfied after 3 months, he would return and pickup the equipment.
I told Mr. Harris, I was busy at the moment, and would consider his program later. He explained, it would only take a moment to sign up and I could always cancel later.
He presented several documents and asked me to simply initial and sign my name. He held the documents in such a way I could only see where to sign. I could not see the full pages. I ask him to leave a copy of the documents I signed. He stated he was late for his next appointment, but a copy of the documents would be sent to me via primary U.S. mail. I never received them.
I tried to contact Mr. Harris after having the equipment 2 months. I was unable to reach him after an addition 4 months.
I finally spoke to John Carter, owner of EVO and attempted to cancel my service and re-
trieval the used equipment. Mr.Carter requested a letter of cancellation, which I e-mailed the same day.
Neither Mr. Carter nor Mr. Harris, have responded to my numerous calls, faxes, e-mails or primary mail. These gentlemen, even refused my certified mail. They did however, begin to draft my checking account immediately. I had to close my checking account, because of the unauthorized drafts.
In april 2006 I started getting harassing calls from Lease Finance Group, to the tune of 12 per day we file a complaint to STATE OF ILLINOIS ATTORNEY GENERAL file# 2006-CONSC-00153959 the call stop in JULY 2006 now they are causing me financial injury, Lease Finance Group made numerous inquires, on my credit. They have placed a charge off on my credit report(s) for the $2196.00.(see en-closure)
This is fraud and outright thievery. Companies such as these should be closed. They are no better than Enron or Halliburton.
FRAUD it is and FRAUD it will remain!
