A notice was sent from their collections department to my p. O. Box, addressed to a business with a similar name as my business, and in the same service industry. It says I (The business with the similar name) owes $89.90 for a merchant service account. I never, ever, signed up for an account, never even crossed my mind to do such a thing. My business is in a small city, and I do not know of a business with the name they are calling it, so I believe they are fraudulently sending this out, thinking i'm not going to pay attention that I have no such account and that I am just going to pay for it!!! Well, they do not know my business's correct name, nor my name, because this is not my account, I never signed up for it!!!

Do not do business with these scammers. You will only be looking for trouble.

    I have the same experience. I had send the complaint letter to BBB. I hope it would give others small business owners alter. Don't use this SCAM company products and services.

    Try calling them and sort it out. Because they can ruin your business credit if they report it.
