This company renewed my contract without consent, furthermore qall equipment was returned and yet we are still being billed for equipment. They are impossible to deal with and are charging 120 monthly for no services provided.

    10/24/08 I received a letter that they are going to assess $20 for 2007 “Average property tax” assessed on the Crfedit Card terminal and $10.20 fee for processing the tax required by state or local
    Monday 12/27/08 I called FDGL at 877-257-2094, the number on their letter. 12-27-08 12:40 pm, I called, Sophia, she said they are taxed as lease provider, gave me two tax ID numbers, unk if they apply. I said I am not happy, and she said “Thank you Michael” and hung up. I called Weld County Colo Assessor at 970-353-3845 Xt 3650.
    Sean advised the tax ID numbers don;t mean anything, but shows our business address with no specific Unit numbers. they Show NO ASSESSMENT for 2007, and pending for 2008.
    This bill is for 2007! I prepared a letter.[First Data Dispute Ltr 10-27-08] Mailed it.
    11/4/08 12:13 pm They called. insisted that 2007 taxes are being billed. Gave me tax ID number again. I said govt said no tax for 2007. They insisted it is to be paid by them and has to be reimbursed. I told the woman they are screwing me again. They don’t care. Would not deal with it further
    It's not a large amount but they are pocketing it, and charging me a processing fee to take it also.

    I'm a class action attorney in the process of assessing possible class action lawsuits against First Data. Our fim has already successfully prosecuted claims against other credit card processors for unfair trade practices. Please contact me with more information about your complaints.

    We were unable to use their credit processing Machines as they were not compatable with our antiquated phone service(local Alaska remote).I called to request info on how to return the machine and was told, no problem return them to an address in Georgia, I did so and recieved a confirmation that they were recieved. Believing that everything was O.k. I was surprised to see a $49.00 charge on my bank acct. I was then informed that the lease agreement was non cancellable-even if the equipment was returned. I put a stop payment on the acct, good for 6 months. They have responded with automated recorded calls in the early A.M and threatning letters. They now say they were just the lessor and have paid the processor, so I must recover the money from them(First Data) who will not acknowledge that we ever had an acct. with them. I'm ready to turn it all over to the Attorney General.First Data and Global leasing are the same company.They NEED to be put out of business as they are mostly preying on extremely small business(less that 6 employees) who can not afford to fight them
