In 2005 a man came in from Merchant Services out of Ohio. He came in and told me that he was a 'preacher' and a man of his word....More like a wolf in sheeps clothing. He showed me some paperwork and covered most of it now that I think about it. He said to read over the paperwork. I did but the paperwork that I orginally received by fax with my signature was not the paperwork I saw. To my dismay, I unknowingly signed a 48 month lease for a 400.00 credit card terminal. Who in there right mind would do such a thing unless we are mislead and lied to. I contacted the company immediately and they said its too late. They received their money for the machine already from LFG from an agreement between them and since I signed the lease I am responsible now for the machine. I contacted Lfg and they threaten to sue me of course...I did not want any problems so I have been paying since 2005.
My machine broke down and I called them. They said they are not responsible and I am . I decided the madness has got to stop. I have paid them $3,534.48 so far. They will not get any more of my hard working money. This is a scam with 3 parties involved. The Merchant company that comes in to see the equipment, LFG who has the 'non-cancellable' lease for 48 months, and least but not last...the company Electronic Payment Services who take care of the credit card processing charges...in which I found out they are also a non cancellable yearly contract...I have to write them 90 days to cancel with this company or I have to pay them for the total charges for a yr.
Its all a fraudulent scam by all these companies and they work together like a pyramid scam. I found out that they all have agreements with one another and they all work together to make us look like a bunch of fools. No more. I am fighting back and going full force with all 3 companies... If they all want to sue..I am sure the jury would find it very interesting how truly their companies work....
