I Was approached by a Telemarketer back in January offering a credit card with a $3500.00 credit limit. They asked for the checking acct information, I gave them the info reluctantly and then they said they would withdraw $199.00 from my acct. I am recently divorced and trying to establish credit, so I thought this may be a good way.

Well, I went with my gut instict and called the 800 number provided by them to cancel. I spoke with a lady who kept putting me on hold and asked me for my information, I then told her I wanted to cancel, she reassured me that it was not a scam. Well, the debit did not show up on the day that it was suppose to clear, so I assumed that they had cancelled it, three days later, they charged my account the $199.00. I looked in here and saw that there had been complaints, I contacted my credit union, who were wonderful and reversed the charges.

Well, today I receive a letter from Global Payment Check Services located in Chicago, asking for the money and a $20 fee. I explained that it had been fradulent, I have a police report and they were not only rude, but continued to support Parnelli INC and said that they were not a scam, I asked for a supervisor, I spoke with Bob Winters who was also rude and said that I gave the information and it was basically my fault and I had to pay.

I explained that I didn't have to and he rudely said that he would not contact me, but would make sure that I would never write a check again. I am a lil worried, but I figured I can always contact Chex Systems and other agencies with the affidavit of fraud and police report.

Please stay away from both, by the look of things, both companies are working together to scam people out of their money.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Parnelli Inc.....actively participated in any fraudulent schemes involving telemarketing

AUTHOR: George - (U.S.A.)

Global Payments Check Services Inc. (GPCSI) has provided check recovery and guarantee services to merchants throughout the United States for over 25 years. GPCSI is acutely aware of its responsibilities under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and we take great pride in providing excellent customer service that meets and exceeds our obligations under the Act.

GPCSI has at no time actively participated in any fraudulent schemes involving telemarketing, promised credit cards, or otherwise. Our relationship with Parnelli Inc. was limited solely to guaranteeing any returned checks written to Parnelli that met our standards for reimbursement. Once these checks were assigned to GPCSI, we then pursued collection on the checks in accordance with our normal procedures. Such procedures involve investigating claims of fraudulent activity and responding with the utmost respect to victims of such scams.

Unfortunately, this consumer's complaint is similar to numerous other consumer disputes that GPCSI received from Parnelli customers claiming either that they never received the credit card or that they cancelled the initial transaction with Parnelli. GPCSI made several attempts to contact the owner of the business to apprise him of the significant concerns; however, we were forwarded to a voice mail on these occasions and never received a return call. Based on these experiences, GPCSI severed its business relationship with Parnelli on 03/16/04.

GPCSI sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience that our collections activities may have caused to this consumer and others similarly situated. Please understand that GPCSI is not affiliated in any way with Parnelli Inc., that we have never participated in any fraudulent activity, and that we strive to have the best customer service in our industry. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-638-4600.
