This should sound weird, and you should think I'm a dummy person. But if you realize strategies of this leasing company you would understand. But no that's not how it happened. They start calling me from the first day I registered my business' name. There was about 10 more days to open my store so I arranged the day after openning day to talk to somebody from this company.
I was approached by Amy Connoly. I was asked to make one payment of 99.99$ as first payment and 14$ for 48 months as insurance of Credit Card Machine. She was same age as me about 30-35 and pregnant. I asked her to sit down and not to wait standing because of pregnancy, but she wanted to stand by me. I was really busy (think about the day after the opening day)and with couple of costumers when I was interrupted by Amy Connoly. To be nice, I took the papers from her hand and set them by my cash register. I had couple of more costumers than I didn't want to make the lady wait anymore and took out of my check book and wrote one for 99.99$.(I thought She was representing another company called Integrity of Texas by the way.)She had smiley face and explaind me smart buy option payment which is 99.99$ up front and 14$ a month. And I needed the machine asap. So I signed the papers. This was the last I saw her and talked to her.She never answered her cell phone.
Today its been 8 months I'm paying 113.99$ a month. Why I could lease this machine for 4800$ when I could buy it maybe for 300-400$. These people approach you when you cannot pay the full attention and trust their warm, in person contact. They are probably laughing at me after each time I called them. I believe there should be a way to fight with this. There are other people too. And we are lied by this company which targets small business like us, to scam.
