Checks Unlimited ripoff bait-and-swtch Colorado Springs Colorado

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Like all the others who dealt with Checks Unlimited, I fell into the same trap. They told me that mine was not a new order and that I had ordered through them in the year 2000, five years ago!

Therefore. I owe a total of $34.90...or else. They were going to submit my name to a collection agency in 20 days if they do not receive full payment.

This is the only company, I know, that penalizes return customers. Imagine how many of those first-time customers are going to fall into the same trap, as we did, when they re-order checks next time. I am surprised the AG in Colorado isn't on to these guys.

In the future, I am going to refer to this ripoffreprot before dealing with any company I am not familiar with. If I had done that with Checks Unlimited, I would not be suffering from deja vu, as I read all of your similar stories regarding this unscrupulous outfit. And yes, the phone reps. like pushing callers' buttons. Maybe they view it as a job-perk.

What bothers me is how easy it is for companies like this to change name, like a snake shedding its skin, and assume a new identity. As if the slate is wiped clean and they get to do this bate-and-switch on new customers all over again. Don't be surprised if this time next year they are calling themselves something new.
