New England Wellness Works is a physical therapy and human services medical practice located in Brattleboro, Vt. We opened our business checking account in June 2003, and Brattleboro Savings and Loan sold our phone number to the merchant account company BANKCARD USA.
BankCard contacted me by mail and I called them to set up an account which included the leasing of and credit card terminal machine. The machine was delivered and every piece of paper was Bankcard's. I never heard of CIT or Lease Financial Group. Yet, they were taking money from our bank account for three years and it took that long to find out who they were.
The bank was told this transfere of funds was unorthorized. They continued with it claiming they did not know who the offending party was. We closed they account and opened one at another bank with instructions that money could be transfered in but no money was authorized to be transfered out of the account. That is when CIT came out of the closet.
I have no lease agreement with them. I had never heard of them and the Bank and BankCard USA know nothing about them,(wink,wink). Like Carter knowing nothing about fish oil.
BankCard USA stold my bank account number and other information, filled in an agreement form with CIT and mt signature appears beneath, no upon this agreement. A copy and paste job via fax I suspect.
We sent the terminal back to Lease Financial Group and paid them, up to the day.
RANDY LOVE called me from Lease Financial Group stating that I had a LIFETIME LEASE that was non-cancelable. Yet, they can not produce a lease agreement, nor a lawyer who documented one. They have a fraud VP as a witness. No name, just scribbling as a signature.
Using an automatic dialer, this company calls my work and home numbers some 20-30 times a day telling me that I have to pay up. They are keeping me from treating patients and I can not rest in my own home. I am a paraplegic with a spinal cord injury and they are making me sick. This has been going on for months and I will use my remaining energy to procacute nthese people to the fullest extent of the law.
In the meantime I suggest that since they are abusing the telephone, we should all rest on the speed dial button and give them a taste of their own medicine. There are over 40 reports about them at the Bad Business Bureau to date. If 40 of us got together and kept their phones ringing they could not use the phone to abuse others.
