Well i like to start off by stating that Karma is a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))

and no matter what it will always come back to bite you in the a**! Now that being said i would like to introduce my self as just simply put a Former employee! lol and what i have to say you will most definetly want and love to read becasue i have a lot to say.

So now that my introduction has you intruiged here we go i would like to start off by saying Sean Mecham is a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))

! Jon Cannon is a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))  Rj Martoia is the(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) who loves to toss both of these duesh bags salad all day. Now for the good part here we go If you are reading this and you are a current customer " client of Axiom merchant services i feel sorry for you becaue you are not only being screwed out of large sums of money you blinding did it to your self for simply not READING!!!! now if you are a potenial client of these dumb a***** please pay close attention. These people will call you and state to be whole salers and try to set an appointment to meet with one of there Relationship Managers " a sales guy wich no education who they literally recruite off of craigs list or some news article who does not know anything about merchant services " not kidding wanna know how or why i know becaue the person who trains them is Jon Cannon who knows nothing about your point of sale system or terminal you currently have or does he know anything about what you currently pay. All he teaches his sales people is how to rob you blind with a tier program rate with they love to start off at a 1.29 percent for offline debit which you will never see followed by a 1.65 percent credit rate which is tiered for mid qual cards and non qual cards which is what you will actually pay which is usually around 2.5 percent and 4.1 percent out of every penny you make. Do the math that's 2.50 for every hundered or 4.10 out of every hundred dollars. So keeping doing the math and you will see there is absolutly in no (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) way on this planet this going to save you any money. Jon Cannon is a criminal and a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))
who doesn't even pay his own taxes in fact Sean writes Jon's checks out to his wife Misha Cannon who is Jon's wife hmm i wonder why that is? I'll leave the answer to that question to the people who actually work for the state and our lovly court systems. Now moving along these people will come out meet with you pull out a laptop and according to them " run the numbers off your statments " all they are doing is pluggin numbers into a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) screen that they created with an equation they pulled out of thier a***** when they were taking a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))

 in order to show you that they can actually save you money usually 200 or more a month NOT KIDDING! Know if you actually are dumb enough to fall for that and choose to move forward they will quickly pull out some contracts for you to sign and be there NEW customer " VICTIM " you will get a processing contract and if you don't pay close attention you will also be signing a LEASE which for the record is NON CANCELABLE it says so on the (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) sake read the everything you sign. becasue this is the way Sean makes his money and how he is able to keep operating. Now the reason they make money is because they are funded for every lease they get signed threw there leasing company which god knows who they have dealt with now becaue they go through so many because of all the fraud Jon and Rj love to make and all the problems they cause. Know if you so happen to have signed a lease and after reading this are saying (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) this. please pick up the phone call your leaseing company and tell them this " i was miss led and promised that this could be canceled and let them know you will stopping payment asap " this will end your lease agreement and in the end make Sean pay for it YOUR WELCOME SEAN : - ) lol if you think i'm lieing please put it to the test once you revoke on a payment they notify sean which will promptly cause one of the customer service agents or the only one they have to call you make sure everything is okay tell her to go (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) because remember this is a scam and you will NOT SAVE ANY MONEY i use to work for this (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) and i know all the ins and outs of his zoo he calls a company. If you were ever promised a BUYOUT of your prior contract i will tell you know if he doesn't pay his employees what the (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) makes you think he is going to buy out your old contract lol no seriously he doesn't pay his employees and if he does get lucky and the checks go through in your bank account you will not be so lucky and you will never see a dime of that money. Know so you have an idea of who you are dealing with Sean is the son of Gary Mecham who owns a Payroll company Icon Payroll Solutions he is a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) who thinks he is rich he likes to Drive Mazzartis " repoed " Audi S5 " sold  to cover payroll " a lifted chevy truck i think he sold that too know, an Escaladed blacked out with black 24 in rims " his wifes car " a trophie truck " 100 K " and a Motor Home " 100 K " again which i'm sure by now he surly sold to cover pay roll and the rent on the building he " supposidly owns " lol. If you think this is bad we have just begun, Sean doesn't pay taxes or social security or az state tax for his employees don't beileve me and you currenlty work for him go to your local SS office and ask for your reporting for the prior year and you will see the math is off, but don't worry i have already addressed that with a lawyer and the state and the attorney general. Sean use to take earning from Icon Payment Solutions in order to go race a dumb a*** trophie truck in the desert for a race that didn't pay s**t literally one of the dumbest sports on the face of the planet. That's a whole other issue though. Here is another fun fact Sean in trying to avoid to pay Arizona State Tax tried to get Axiom Payment Solutions licened in the state of Nevada lol genius haha right? Sean is the CEO according to his cards but his wife Ashley Brisbon is actually the actual owner of the company how do i know go to the Arizona Business Commission and they will tell you all these fun facts. I can do this for days and days i have so much stuff on the whole bunch of morons it's halarious if you ever need help with anything just send me a rebutal and i will more than be happy to help you get out of whatever (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) mess you got your self in. If you are wondering why i am doing this? Here is your answer and i hope to god JON RJ AND SEAN are reading this, i want this company out of business and i want to see these (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) morons behind bars or homeless on the side of the road and i will not stop telling people the truth until that goal is accomplished because like my title says Karma is a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) and i can not wait to see the day i witness one of those things happen to these(((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE)))

. FYI the call center manager is a black lady named Tanisha who is not only an acoholic but a pill popper who don't know her mouth from her a** hole this is a fact! some more facts for fun Jon Cannon lives in Gilbert he had a home built there " so you get an idea of how much they have stolen from hard working americans " Sean lives in north Mesa in a very nice quiet neiborhood it's right off of Greenfeild rd and as for RJ hes just a (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) erran boy who use to work at the buckle and was recruted from there to work for Sean lol " qualified account manager " got his math skills and merchant services training working at the buckle lol ! I hope this post helps alot of people get out of the mess these (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) cost lots of hard working americans, but god willing they will get what is comming to them with everything i plan to do!

Starting New Company

AUTHOR: Thoma5 - (USA)

Hello All,

I was doing some research on expanding my business to now include Merchant services and found what I thought to be the perfect name so I searched the interwebs about starting a Merchant Services company with the premius on being a very transparent and Honest company and the irony of this happing with the name "Axiom"is to funny.

Which leads me to my question "do you all think that It is possable to use this name and be succsessful", or once a business name has been trashed its better to be "laid to rest" 

is It even possible to have these removed?

Everything is true

AUTHOR: just awful - (United States of America)

I also use to work for this company both as ICON and Axiom and I was a sales rep. I was flown out to AZ and was feed all kinds of BS from Jon and Sean. Then when I get back home and start running the appointments I was doing good or so I thought. i signed up a bunch of people and I thought I was really going to be saving them money but I was not at all I still feel bad for ever signing people up but with that being said I have to second what was said in the review, as a business owner read everything before you sign it. i no longer work for this company but I am still owed over $3000 dollars from bounced check fees and commissions I have never seen. I can't believe a company can do this and just get away with it and I have tried to find help to get my money from them and I can't find anyone that will go after them. Every time i did get a check in the mail it was 500+ lower than it was suppose to be and then the check would bounce every time. I would call Sean or John and tell them and then they would get me another check and then that one would bounce too. I am with the guy that wrote this I want nothing more than to be able to see them out of business and on the streets I hate them and everything they do. I have never worked in merchant services so when i met with people I had all false information I didn't know what I was doing at all. It was only when I started doing research on the stuff that I found out that I was ripping people off in the worst way. Like the leases if you do a lease at even $39 a month which is low for what they try to sign you up at, lets do the math $39*48=$1872 for something that brand new cost $300. When you look at it this way you can see how the company makes so much money. This company has messed up my life when I took this job I thought I would be making good money but turns out that most of the time I was never paid because of this me and my family has moved from a nice three bedroom house to a small 2 bedroom apartment and we use to have 2 cars one that was a super nice car that I lost because of missed payments due to bounce checks. I will say that they helped me get the car back after a long time i almost lost it for ever oh wait i did because the next check I got bounced and missed that payment too. Now I live in an awful 2 bedroom and we only have one s***** car and leave paycheck to paycheck I have not been working for them for a while now and I am still trying to recover from what they did. they drain my savings got a repo on my record cost me to lose my house and even almost got me evicted out of my apartment. I know another person that doesn't work for them anymore and he was living on the street after they gave him checks that bounced it is so said . If you take a job with company you are f***** I promise you will make more from picking up cans on the road than you will working with them your paychecks will always bounce!!! I am still trying to find a lawyer and ex employees that will put together a law suite to get back everything we lost and make them pay for what they did I still can't belive than me and my family with two young kids almost had to live in a small 4 door car because of their bounced checks and not paying me.

Axiom Merchant Services Sean Mecham is a thief

AUTHOR: ATTPOS.NET - (United States of America)

I'm their vendor, and they have ripped us off.  Sean Mecham / Brian Peterson are pieces of s*** who bought credit card equipment from us, to resale or lease to their clients back in November of 2011, worth of 30k and never paid.  They stopped returning phone calls and emails from us, and could not be found. I later found out that Sean is also associated with Icon Payment Solutions Inc in AZ.  These scumbags go around ripping and stealing from vendors, clients, and their employees as well.  I have filed a complain with bbb, working with an attorney to sue these a**holes.

Mecham gets his!!!

 Credit card processing business owners indicted on fraud, money laundering charges

The proprietors of Valley credit card payment processing companies have been indicted on money laundering and wire fraud charges by a federal grand jury in Phoenix.

Sean Clinton Mecham, 36, Ashley Brisbin Mecham, 27, Jonathan L. Cannon, 31, and Jake Brisbin, 26, were indicted on various charges this month. They were executives and employees at Icon Payment Solutions, Axiom Merchant Services and Oracle Payment Services, according to court documents.

Prosecutors allege the Mechams deposited $2.9 million worth of ill-gotten gains into accounts they controlled and used the money to buy a luxury boat, Mercedes and Maserati cars and off-road trucks for racing.

Their companies processed credit card payments for retailers and other businesses. The indictment charges the quartet with misleading customers into signing leases for credit card machines and forging as many as 200 business owners and managers signatures.

They also were charged with changing contract terms after business clients signed other agreements. Sales prospects were told they would pay lower credit card fees if they signed up with the defendants’ companies.

The Better Business Bureau and other consumer websites also list complaints against the company and the executives. One consumer complaint says there may be some family link between Sean Mecham and deceased former Arizona governor Evan Mecham.

Ashley Mecham and Jake Brisbin were arraigned on charges Nov. 7 in Los Angeles and were released. Cannon was arraigned in Phoenix on Nov. 12, according to prosecutors. Sean Mecham is still in custody pending trial, according to prosecutors. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Arizona want Sean Mecham held arguing he is a flight risk, skipped court hearings for civil complaints against his companies and has previously withdrawn large amounts of cash. Court documents also show prosecutors claiming Sean Mecham threatening employees, family members and others from talking about his business dealings.

Mecham and other defendants could not be reached for comment. David Eisenberg, a Phoenix white-collar defense attorney, could end up representing Sean Mechem. Eisenberg said he has not yet been assigned to the case and declined further comment.

The numbers of that business in the investigation have been disconnected or are no longer in service.

I also need help to get out of my "lease"

AUTHOR: barbarella - (United States of America)

I wish I'd seen this earlier before I made all these payments (12).   I called the sales person who sold me the 'lease' and he told me how the company was a scam and that he had left them because of it.  He also told me to stop payment from my bank account.  But a couple months later, I received constant harassing phone calls from the Lease Finance Company, threatening me telling me my credit will go down if I don't pay.  Of course, I tried to contact Axiom who changed its name to Oracle, and the last couple months, the phone numbers I had for them were no longer working!   Finally, the Lease Finance people called to get another payment from me, I told them I no longer own the business.  They said since I still have 36 payments left ($1500) they can let me pay it off.  They can give me a discount and I will only have to pay $1100!!!!!

Is it true if I refuse to pay the Lease company they will go after the Axiom guy instead of going after me?

I would appreciate any help you can give me.  Thank you.

Another Name Change

AUTHOR: Jason - (United States of America)

If you are called by a company with the name ORACLE PAYMENT SYSTEMS out of arizonia -  beware. Look up reviews for the company called Axiom Merchant Services or Icon Payment Solutions. You will find that they are all the same exact company, run by the same person, committing the same scams. If you value you hard earned money you will not sign up with them. The owners name is Sean Mecham

ex employee

AUTHOR: whiteboyy0 - (United States of America)

i worked at the call center in mesa for a month. Awful job nothing like a place of buisness at all. I was ultimately fired for being" upset about my paycheck", which i was since they did not give me a paycheck and i had no idea when if ever i would get one. Its been a week since i've been fired and all calls to the company and manager tenisha baker have gone unanswered. They still owe me 800 dollars and i've been leaving messages trying to get a hold of anybody. I dont think i will ever get the money owed since i overheard the owner talking about how he was going to withhold somebodies check who had just quit.
