I am a small business owner in Alabama. I was approached by Rob Jernigan several times in 06, & 07 to get a credit card machine from him. I told him no everytime. He was very persistant and pushy! He told me the last time he came by that if I would just try it for 3 months I wouldn't be charged a dime other than the % when the machine was used. He told me if I didn't want it after the 3 months, he would come and get it and I would owe nothing. At anyrate he CONNED me into it. Im in a small town and really don't need a credit card machine but to get him off my back I decided to try it. A few weeks later I went to my mail box and low and behold I had some checks to bounce! I go to the bank to investigate the reasons when it shouldn't have happened. There was a company called MBF leasing that had been taking money out of my account that I had no idea who they were or why they were doing that. I immediatly called Rob. He said that wasn't suppose to happen and that he would refund any money that had been taken out and refund any money that I was out for the bounced checks. Again, I was foolish and waited for him to take care of this problem. A few days later the same thing happened. I called Rob and told him to come get his machine and give me my money. He again agreed. I waited on him 2 or 3 different times but he never showed up. Then one day unexpectedly, he came in and had his little girl with him. He was a little hostile to begin with and when I didn't back down he began to curs and yell at me and my employees! He called us and I quote,"Stupid a*s rednecks". I had him arrested because I had customers present at the time. Anyway,I won that case, but now MBF has put this on my credit! I'm so upset! I am not gona take this lying down! I'm gonna fight this company at all costs! Rob, you done messed with the wrong "stupid a*s redneck!!!!!!!! I was never presented the MBF contract! I only learned of it when it came in the mail. I'm also not the only victom in my town. There are at least 3 others. I've always been told there are strength in numbers ! Any more suggestions to help would be appreciated.
