Prestige Auto and Spa - The Worst Credit Agency In The WORLD! Scam Artists!
There is a credit proccessing agency out there by the name of Merchant Lynx, or Merchant Scam! We had a salesman, and his name was Peter, by the way, this is in NJ, who promised us the world with this company and how we would save so much money with them. He said we had to get new terminals and we specifically asked if there were any fees and he said no!
We decided to use their service, and a week later we received a bill from First Global Data Leasing for $235.00 for taxes for the 3-year lease on the equipment. We contacted the sales rep and he said not to worry, that he can override any charges on the account. It should be free!
They promised us only a monthly service charge of $69, but it turned out to be with First Global Data Leasing, the equipment provider, which he repeatedly said there were no fees, but we had no idea we were even signing up with two other companies, these are other than Merchant Lynx. The two other companies were First Global Data Leasing and iPayment.
He never overrode the charges, and now we have a problem with FGDL, which they say we have a 3-year lease with, which we do not, there was no such name on the contract. We did not even know because he kept telling us there were no fees, but we constantly asked him.
We had to close out our checking accounts and open new ones to avoid these charges. Repeated phone calls to the rep went unanswered, all of our efforts were wasted on that sales rep, that scam artist.
We lost some money in the proccess, but we were not about to give in to this kind of a scam. If anyone wants to file a class action suite against this company with us, feel free to contact us by commenting on this page, leave any contact information and we will take it from there.
