Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW

EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Data Compliance Services for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with Data Compliance Services have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Data Compliance Services listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Data Compliance Services CEO, Mr. River Cohen, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients success are the heart of the business. [continued below]....
..... As a successful businessman, Mr. Cohen feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Cohen hopes to maintain Datainsure as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come. Another top executive, COO Marc Newman told us that Mr. Cohen's personal business philosophy is based on Robin Sharma's quote, "Business is about Loving the people who do business with you and giving them more Value than they have any right to expect."

Datainsure's River Cohen says this, "Datainsure provides Exceptional Electronic Payment Processing and Data Compliance for small to mid-size business owners. We will handle your processing needs from top to bottom, to create a seamless relationship. We guarantee our program with ZERO Cancellation Fees"

One of the things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads, "Datainsure truly communicates all aspects of their service in a timely and effective manner. We are very pleased with the responsiveness that the employees show us. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on their promises."

Data Compliance Services is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Marc Newman during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases towards Data Compliance Services.

Data Compliance Services is a merchant services/credit card payment processing company. Marc Newman stated the following in regards to the vision of his company, "our vision is to provide the best rates, most up to date hardware and software, and superior customer service."

Leads for Data Compliance Services are primarily obtained through a marketing firm that reaches out to perspective merchants. Mr. Newman explained the sales process as follows, "once we receive an interested lead...their processing statement is analyzed by our professionals and then a package is created to provide them with the value."


During the onsite interview Mr. Newman was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Newman explained that they very rarely receive complaints with their company, he additionally expressed how they remedy issues when they do arise, "first and foremost an apology is issues and...everything necessary to correct it is done." If the matter is customer service related an administrative team member will call to address and issues. If the matter is in correlation with the hardware they provide, "in cases that the merchant is local we will go to their place of business and correct the issue."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Newman stated the following, "It says that we misrepresented our corporate ID by using Quickbooks Intuit logo. We have permission to use Quickbooks and Intuit logos as a premier reseller for Intuit and Quckbooks. It says we withdrew funds without authorization. There is no way we would be able to withdraw funds without someone’s bank account that we were given, and they signed off on that, so it would be impossible to take funds without authorization." To further assure future and current clients Data Compliance Service's salesmen are ETA CPP certified, which is the credit card industry standard. Additionally, they have an A+ ratings with the Better Business Bureau.

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Newman stated, "we have completely overhauled our administrative team. We have implemented a new answering service. We have purchased client relationship management software. We have purchased a new voice-over-internet phone system. Our priority is the customer, so we have made it… the path of least resistance for them to get in touch with us if there any issues, and for us to get in touch with them to rectify those issues. We also have a zero cancellation fee guarantee, which we implemented because we don’t want someone to be locked into something if they’re unhappy."

Data Compliance Services is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "I think it’s the highest compliment and honor to be a part of Ripoff Report because along with Google it is one of the most well-respected names on the Internet, and to have a relationship and a positive influence from them is absolutely a game changer for anyone’s business, so we are extremely fortunate and blessed to have this relationship now."


" We are one of the top Merchant Service Providers for helping small to medium size businesses realize their profitablilty in a timely manner. With Datainsure, you'll receive an ETA CPP Certified Sales Team and a Reliable, Dependable, and Congenial Administrative Team. Please take time to review our site, Learn about our Processing, Hardware, and Software offerings, meet the people who will manage your account, understand our history, and receive answers to some of your questions.

Mr. Cohen is truly concerned about our contribution to the company and has provided growth opportunities for us; a true meritocracy. He and Mr. Newman take the time to listen and communicate with employees and Merchants alike."

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that Data Compliance Service's past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES River Cohen ,chief executive officer, Scottsdale, Arizona


Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer so the member business could make things right with them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason. In order to confirm that the complaints were resolved, Ripoff Report is copied on all responses so we can insure that the member business did right by their customer. The author of the Ripoff Report below never responded to our offer to help them.


False: We are allowed to use Intuit's logo, as we are a Premier Reseller. No one says "We are Intuit, ever." Money is never taken without authorization. Forms are signed by the merchant, allowing us to debit their account for respective services. Also, the author of the Ripoff Report below also filed the one other Ripoff Report filed about our business on this website.



thank you for the opportunity to report a company's questionable business practices.

to date (as of this morning, 7/5/20012...DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES continues to charge and overdraft my account for services NOT (and never) rendered.

they have cost my business, including the choice to terminate my Point-of-Sale system with Quickbooks after the gross mishandling of my complaint and the service of their third-party (mis)-representativesapproximately, $6,000. The amount of money, extracted/extorted from my PERSONAL, PRIVATE, WELLS FARGO BUSINESS OPERATING ACCOUNT has been, to date, $1,200.

here is one of several 'summaries' i've posted...either with the Better Business Bureau, the FTC, the Attorney General's office and other 'forums' in an effort to make this business accountable for it's gross negligence, aggressive misrepresentation and egregious actions against businesses that trusted them with sensitive and vital information.

Anyone's feedback or suggestions is welcome. I'd even be willing to hear from SOMEONE from this ORGANIZATION, as I've made COUNTLESS attempts to reach all parties, with calls going UNANSWERED, messages UNRETURNED and actions (on the VERY limited times there was contact) NEVER FOLLOWED THROUGH.

I'm posting to this conversation, as I'm an outraged victim of CONTINUED SCAMS, A REVERSAL OF AN AGREED-UPON REFUND TO MY BUSINESSES' OPERATING ACCOUNT, and CONTINUED UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO MY FUNDS from both Data Compliance Services AND now, from what I can see by other consumer complaints filed, by QUICKBOOKS/INTUIT, as well.
This all began around the same time Mr. or Ms. MDANK filed their complaint. I was using the Quickbooks POINT OF SALE software and called their company (the 800 number provided on their customer service link on their website). I expressed my interest in combining my POS with my Merchant Card Services to save money AND to have a comphrehensive system which might provide much-needed marketing and customer outreach.
I was contacted by who I thought was a QB/INTUIT employeeonly to find out, after more than ONE YEAR of DCS not meeting the criteria promised for my business to utilize their services (a 'compimentary pinpad' AND what would have been one year of 'complimentary tech support so my staff and I could learn the system and benefit from the features they claimed came with this package).

 IT IS NOW ALMOST A YEAR AND A HALF since I inititiated the relationship between my company and who I THOUGHT was QUICKBOOKS/INTUIT, only to find, after much aggravation and run around, that the company EXTRACTING MONEY FROM MY BUSINESS' OPERATING ACCOUNT FOR SERVICES NEVER RENDERED, is DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES, a third-party company who's employees DO NOT RETURN PHONE CALLS (unless it's in their best interest. in this case, i DID receive a call back only AFTER FILING COMPLAINTS with the ARIZONA BBB, and the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION. 
Cutting to the chase (which, in this matter, is practically impossible as it's been 18 months of sheer hell, none of which, as far as I can tell, is ending any time soon), this DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES has used the access I originally granted them to my businesss operating account for the sole purpose of processing credit cards.
This was initiated but never completed as I didn't receive equipment or call backs in order to fully implement a changeover from my existing Merchant Card Service with Wells Fargo.

 HOWEVER, subsequent to the MUTUAL TERMINATION of our business relationship and DCS' willingness to grant me a refund for the months and bank fees I was charged for a service that was never fully activated (they had clearly 'activated' the billing procedure on their end but failed to follow up by providing me the equipment and/or training required to safely terminate my credit card system with Wells Fargo and begin utilizing the services of..NOT QUICKBOOKS, NOT INTUIT...but DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES...who by the way, up until the point I discovered it was THEM and NOT QB/INTUIT I was doing business with...they added the QB/INTUIT logo as part of their signature line ( representatives were Dave Pringle and Missy Munoz...are these familiar names to anyone in this forum?) order to falsely lead me to believe THAT was the company I was doing business with.

 Again, cutting BACK to the chase, to date, this business 'relationship' has cost me almost $1,000 in unauthorized charges and subsequent bank overdraft fees as, quite naturally, not being privvy to the fact they were debiting my account monthly, despite my request to 'terminate' our relationship. I must mention, after much aggravation, phone calls and being passed around like a bad cold they did FINALLY agree to refund me the $365 in fees which they acknowledged had been wrongfully debited.

 Imagine my complete and utter surprise when, their company, seeing I had filed a complaint with the FTC and the BBB, they unilaterally 'retrieved my bank account information' (as they apparantly NEVER destroyed it, per my request), but RESCINDED the ORIGINAL REFUND (without warning and without my authorization. 
To date, THIS MOST RECENT EGREGIOUS ACTION on the part of DCS has again, compounded damages with weekly overdraft fees from the extraction of the oringal refund, to the point my operating account has not had a consistent positive balance in over 6 weeks.
ANYONE in this discussion board wondering whether DCS is possibly conducting shady, illegal or such as bait and switch business practices and the illegal use of highly private, highly sensitive information like social security numbers and bank account numbers should be WARNED...this COMPANY IS CRIMINAL.

 If ANYONE would be interested in seeing ANY of the evidence I've saved to  prove that this is so much more than a disgruntled complaint, but a situation that might warrant class action, is welcome to contact me via this 'network'.
My only concern is if DCS/QUICKBOOKS/INTUIT are monitoring this discussion board, my post MAY be deleted and never reach it's intended audience (other naive and vulnerable small business owners). However, I assure you, I'm copying this and saving it along with all of the other hard evidence, data and proof of 'extortion' I've been forced to endure during this 18-month business owner's worst nightmare.
Thank you for opening this discussion. I hope I've made a valuable contribution to the group conscience.

r u kidding me?

AUTHOR: - ()

please kindly explain what i, a small retail business owner—have to gain for 'slandering' this company's name?

IF you've had a stellar experience—then BRAVO—but frankly, i don't think me—or the many individuals who contacted me directly to AFFIRM SIMILAR NIGHTMARE SCENARIOS—all strikingly similar in tone—this company and their executive staff are as close running a white-collar, bait and switch (USING THE QUICKBOOKS/INTUIT LOGO ON THEIR SIGNATURE LINE TO MISLEAD POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS INTO BELIEVING THEY'RE DEALING WITH A 'FINANCIAL BRANCH' of the QB/INTUIT organization.

using this logo and NOT disclosing WHO you're REALLY doing businesss with is deceiving—specifically when you're trying to get to the bottom of a problem. in my case—they continued to bill me and withdraw money from my bank account long after i had TERMINATED SERVICE with their organization.

it was difficult to 'track' these withdrawals as the 'debit' on my online bank statements were often inconsistent so it was easy to miss these withdrawals until i did a more detailed search and follow up.

very VERY disconcerting to have a company i had LEFT was still using my bank account to collect their monthly 'fee'.

writing these REBUTTALS is exhausting and whiplashes me back to a time that was both stressful and mortifying when phone calls weren't returned, my rep EVAPORATED and i was sent an email stating i could get a refund ONLY AFTER i deleted my complaint to the BBB in california and arizona.

so...i have NOTHING TO GAIN other than the marginal satisfaction that DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES does NOT continue to rip off small businesses with their smoke and mirrors tactics and they're WEAR YOU OUT RUNNING YOU IN CIRCLES style of problem-solving. as for the 'extortion'-like email (refund in exchange for dropping complaints) is ON FILE with the state's attorney general's office in both california and arizona, as well as the BBB in those states.

this is NOT ANYTHING i, or anyone else for that matter, do for a good time on a friday night.

best of luck to you, until something goes SOUTH...then you'll understand there is NO GAIN...only unnecessary PAIN—period.

happily EMPLOYED? that's NOT THE ISSUE...

AUTHOR: - ()


you are happily employed...why bite the hand that feeds you?

the fact that DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES or whatever other 'name' they're operating under—USED the QUICKBOOKS/INTUIT LOGO to 'appear' to be part of THAT COMPANY and would not disclose their actual identity and changed their signature line only AFTER me...their 'customer' had to waste precious time, money and resources to get to the bottom of their unauthorized CONTINUED ACCESS TO MY BUSINESS BANK ACCOUNT is THE ISSUE.

you've either drank the kool-aid or were paid to write this won't take much 'probing' to find—god knows how many businesses—tossed into chaos—a DIRECT RESULT of their sleazy, slimy business practices.

people who were your 'reps' GO AWOL...don't return phone calls...don't return emails (if you're having a 'problem')...and go from a great sales pitch to ABSENTIA or throwing up so much smoke and mirrors—as a business it's 'easier' to just drop your 'beef' than to try to get them to square up with you—their customer—someone you've entrusted to 'manage' your credit card processing.

i have documents which include an email basically telling me they'd refund my money ONLY AFTER i remove my complaint to them with the BBB in california and arizona where they squat.

i've had other customers reach out to me and tell me they literally had to DRIVE TO THEIR HEADQUARTERS and DEMAND to see whoever was 'in charge' as their efforts to disengage with the company was fruitless and they were taken down the same rabbit hole of money/time suck my company was (they still retain my information and oddly their company info 'pops up' periodically as a 'default link' when i'm doing financial transactions. 

this has been very disturbing...but frankly...they've got themselves so well-buried and 'protected' by loopholes they can continue to PREY ON NAIVE OR UNINFORMED businesses and steal your hard-earned money.

a solution was simple...REFUND THE MONEY YOU TOOK OUT OF MY BANK ACCOUNT w/o MY APPROVAL...stop running me and countless others in circles until we're exhausted and find it easier to move on then continue to chase a thief who has no intention of ever getting caught as it's easier to find a new fool to RIP OFF.'re either part of the problem, are incredibly ignorant (and if that's the need a paycheck, i get it)...but DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES and their CEO, LMNOP, XYZ...Richard Cohen...have a lot of customers (and EX-EMPLOYEES) to answer to...but they won't...because, as PT BARNUM SAID...there's a sucker born every minute...and your 'superiors' are likely laughing their way to their bank while we 'complain'...they could CARE. LESS.

good luck with your career at DATA COMPLIANCE SERVICES...may you prosper...just NOT at the expense of your customers, PLEASE?

Impressive Organization

AUTHOR: Jason West - (USA)

Jason here, business owner from Connecticut.


I have been using Dataqom for my business for the last 2 years now, none of the above complaints seem legitimate. 


From what i can read the reports seem to have no means to verify their claims, and it hurts to hear their name slandered when they have helped me so much in the last couple years


I Have had nothing but positive interactions with this team, in fact i owe them a debt of gratitude for getting my business secure.


First, i have been able to prevent my company from dealing with a Data Breach through the Data Compliance program they provide, even educating me on the requirements i was completely unaware of.


Second they routinely confirm that my trust has been well placed by reviewing our statements for accuracy, and even refunding my account without question when there are any errors.


Third, i have referred Dataqom to several of my friends who have also had excellent dealings with this company. None of the above complaints seem accurate based on my and my friends experiences. 


I hope anyone reading this will realize that there are many businesses in competition with Dataqom, who would love nothing more than to disparage the name of a good company for their own benefit.

#6 UPDATE Employee

Happily Employed for Years!

AUTHOR: Very Happy - (USA)

I have been employed for this company for over four years and I could not be happier. River Cohen has given me an opportunity that no other employer has. If it was not for this job I would still be stuck in the same rut that I know many are still in.

I started out working part time handling only PCI compliance. I am now managing the in house administrative staff and earned myself an office. This job has taught me a lot of self discipline and self worth.

I do handle the training for the administrative staff here, while it may be unorthodox, it works for our organization. We have a very free and welcoming environment. There is little to no supervision, we can wear whatever we want and we encourage the staff here to be themselves as we find that is more productive.

We do have a number of different companies that operate under one roof. We ask people who they are and what they are calling about so we can track and handle the messages accordingly. If we accidently give someone the wrong company name that could be detrimental to the relationship and the business.

I could not speak more highly about this company and believe in all the services we have to offer.  I don't know of any company that does not have disgruntled ex employees. I hope all who read these posts know to look at all sides of the story before passing judgement on another.

Thank you River Cohen and Jennifer Clennan for giving me an opportunity. I hope there are many more years to follow.

Happily Employed for Years!!

#7 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Disgusting Company

AUTHOR: CatchingLiars - (USA)

 I am so sorry to hear about this. I wish I would have done some research about this company while I was employed. I was hired by a company called "The Book Balancer" who has several complaints of unethical business practices against them as well. I was hired to work for what I was told as PCIHIPAA. As I went through my training, if you even could call it that, I noticed that this business had many other names to it. As my position was to assist clients with their technical services as you mentioned above, I was required to use the logo of quick books and intuit. I had access to personal information all the time and as I was learning my "job", I realized that this was all a load of crap! They have another office in Denver, CO and I was flown out there to "train" more. First of all, I had never been to Denver and I was alone with only the address to this place and one contact number to a person who took forever to text me back with directions. I was late my first day since my plane landed late and getting dropped off my the shuttle took forever since it goes in order of who is closest to drop off. After ariving to the office I noticed there was basically all female workers just like the location in Scottsdale. My "training" there was not even training as they didn't teach me anything. I met the co-owner for about a minute and then I was told I was going to be on the next flight out. I believe this was because I was questioning their practices and people didn't like that. This company just wants pretty faces that don't know any better than their clients. As soon as I got off the flight back in Arizona, Jennifer "The Book Balancer" advised me that I was fired because I didn't fit in with the company. Strange that you would fly me out to Colorado, then fire me as soon as I step off the plane. This company is a rip off and honestly the entire time I really didn't understand what the hell they were doing there. And that's how they want it. They want you to do A, B, & C without asking any questions and want you to be ok with not knowing exactly what they do. The more questions I asked, the more enemies I made at that company. I hope that they get what they deserve and I hope that all the clients get back the money this company steels. Also, when I would answer the phone, I would have to ask the reason for the call and that would determine what company name I would state. This company is known under Data Momma, PCIHIPAA, CSI, Dataqom. I'm sure there are other names too. This is just what I know of while working there. Also, the owners are two males that obviously love hiring females as this made up 85% of the staff. They also are so unprofessional and used vulgar language all the time. I would also witness Jennifer "The Book Bakancer" and the co-owner River Cohen have very unprofessional, public fights in the office. I'm sure they were involved personally at one time with each other. I've never seen such disorganized, unprofessional group of people in my life! Still is the #1 story I tell people when they ask me what my worst job was.

Is the source credible

AUTHOR: jay chase - (United States of America)

i have personally worked with Data Compliance Services and they were a delight to work with.  I have been taken advantage of before and this is the First company to ever take the time and explain all the fees----they even sent me a complimentary copy of Quickbooks! 

DCS was the first company that ever pointed out the exposures that exist in the marketplace and they facilitated my PCI-DSS compliance certificate.  This is not a scam and the best decision i have made for my company. 

Thank you DCS, and i strongly recommend them!
