First Data Leasing Company - Card Service International RIPOFF Forged my signature on leasing agreement sent to credit bureau, trying to extort money from me Coral Springs Florida
I was contacted by an agent who claimed to be from CardServices International. We discussed some rates for my company acquiring a credit card terminal, and having the ability to process credit card payments. The agent for CardService International Chris Gumino faxed me over a blank lease agreement. I called him back immediately and informed him that I wasn't signing it because it was blank. He told me to fill it in with what I had agreed to. Two weeks later I received a letter in the mail from CardService International and First Data Leasing. The numbers to which I had agreed for with CardService had been changed. I immediately called Chris Gumino and was told that he wasn't in. I asked to speak to his supervisor, and was told that he would call me back. Of course no one ever returned my call. I called CardService International and was told that the agreement that I signed wasn't cancellable. I ionformed them that we didn't have a contract. I was sent to First Data Leasing and they sent me back to CardService International. I sent several faxes to CardService International, and First Data Leasing. They began to take payments out of my banking account with Citizens bank. I informed Citizens that I didn't have an agreement with either of these companies, and they (Citizens allowed them to deplete the account). This nightmare has continued as First Data sent this account. I had CardService International, and First Data send me copies of the lease that I was alledged to have signed. The signature isn't mine. The agent for CardService International Chris Gumino forged my name. My company has suffered as a direct result of this, and my personal credit has suffered as a result of this forgery. I was unable to get credit to purchase a car after my engine blew. I've been harmed financially, and emotionally as a result of this tactic by CardService International, First Data Leasing. This company calls my cellphone and harasses me continually. Ms. Simpson calls my cellphone and leaves messages like when are you gonna pay up you dead beat, and what are you going to do file bankruptcy. No one should have to put up with this.
