Preferred Merchant Supplies / Merchant Supplies Scam
Company calls receptionists pretending that they have been providing our credit card machine supplies on a regular basis and did we want them to go ahead and ship out our next order. Receptionist believes them and "approves" shipment. We have never done business with them before. Days later we receive supplies at a price that is 10 times the average market price with very high shipping fee. They charged us $162.50 for two 12 packs(24) of thermal 2-ply credit card machine paper(we use single ply). The average cost from a legitimate provider is $31.25 for a 50 pack. Beware this is a scam.
