I can assure you it was. On March 28th 2005 he contacted USA Card Services and signed a lease for a OMNI 3200 Verifone credit card processing machine, he was told he needed it to run his business. USA Card services promised that their 8 week certification program would help him establish an e business that could possibly gross up to $5,000 a month. He was assigned a business consultant named Bill Chandler (ph# 1-866-838-1872 ext. 334)
Now in the beginning Bill was very helpful in giving him advice on how to get started. After the first week my grandfather took numberous amounts of attemps to contact Bill and sure enough Bill never contacted him back. My grandfather studied the course that was given to him however was not able to decide what he wanted on the internet. He was a novoice to the internet and after 6 days of owning the machine he sent it back to Ladco Leasing. Robert from Ladco Leasing called and told my grandfather that once they recived the equipment (probbly at a value of $200.00 at most) there would be an adjustment to the lease arrangement.
They sent my grandfather to a collection agency, he could not afford to pay for it so they took him to court and USA Card Services attorny Franklin J. Love sued him for the amount of $7,562.65 and won. Now this is wrong. I know he signed a contract but he sent the uneeded equipment back! He now has to pay almost $10,000 of his hard earned money to this greedy company. He cant afford food, he cant afford to get his heater fixed in his home and is raising 3 young grandchildren at the same time. USA Card Services should be ashamed of themselves for ripping off an old man- maybe they should have a little empathy and compassion!
I would like to start a class action suit on this company. Please contact me if you are interested in taking part of this.
