summit merchant solutions set me up with lease finance group llc, Oct. 21, 2009 I canceled service with them 11-17-09 and returned the credit card machine to them. lease finance group kept withdrawing money from the company bank account. after numerous phone calls and faxes to the company for them to stop, I closed the bank account 12-2010. Then the harrasing phone calls poured in at work and home, plus they're sending bills to both address's. How is it so EASY to SCAM, FRAUD & UNDERMINE people and get away with it??? I have also filed a complaint with the Office of consumer affairs against Lease finance Group.
In September of 2009, a guy named, Shawn Wallace, representing Merchant Services visited me at my deli and told me that his company will give me $1, 500 for switching my credit card processor and will give me the machine for free that will work with DSL connection and there would be no contract. It sounded too good to be true but he showed me the paperwork to prove that. I, unfortunately, trusted the guy and signed the paperwork. A few days later I got the paperwork in the mail from Lease Finance Group stating that I signed up a 4-yr. contract. I tried to contact LFG but to no vain. Now, they're taking me to a court in New York (I live in Kansas), I want to sue this company bad! And wish to see SHAWN WALLACE behind bars
I Signed 4 years contract with the salesman who offered lower check and credit card processing fees. Weeks later found out that salesman lied to me about the lease, service and fees. Now i am stuck with the terminal for 5 years and pay monthly $75 for 4 years. Terminal worth may be not more than $200. Scam Artist……This is complete lie and DON'T DEAL WITH THEM. THEY SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS AT ALL...STOP THEM
This company said I was on a 48 month lease for this nurit credit card machine... Then it would be mine (If I...
I was looking for a merchant account and came across a company that came out to my home and sold me...
Closed my business in May 2008, returned credit card debit machine and printer. Calling constantly for monthly payments which are paid up to date. Today I asked how much I owe and they told me a ridiculous amount and said they had not received the equipment back. i do have courier bill to prove it was sent back. They are rude and pushy. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM.
I signed up with USMS for credit card processing. The representative, who approched me spoke of transaction...
I leased a credit card machine at a userous rate. The lease expired last Nov. I tried to find where to send the equipment back to an how to cancel the lease, however, I was unable to reach anyone via phone. The phone rang and a machine picked up and no one ever answered. I sent a fax in January requesting information on where/how to end this. I received no reply till June and they are billing 725.00 for a machine that is valued at less than 100.00. What can I do? I see no dollar amount on the lease for equipment buy out.
This company would like to continue to bill for an expired and cancelled contract.
As of today they say I have two accounts past due.
One expired Nov 2009 and it was confirmed that it would not be renewed back in 2007 because the
machine and processing did not work and the sales rep got me another machine that worked
The second machine was returned for servicing with a letter of cancellation/do not renew contract.
I gave LFG the tracking number and address I was advised to send it to.
When processing sales when the machine double billed the client I was charged for double processing and
then another fee for reversing their mistat4e. The double billing did not even show up on the daily
batch report but would show up on the end of month report. The machine never worked on a regular
They say they have passed my account on to collection. After I just paid a lease for 4 years on a machine that never worked and I paid the lease on until 2 months ago. That lease was up in November 2009.
The sales reps employer has a problem with him and he no longer works for them.
Yes. Lease Finance Group will take your money. They are billing me for a machine I don't even have and made my credit score look awful. They want $5000 for a $99 terminal! CRAZY!!!
This "business" needs to be shut down. I am one of several small business owners who have complaints with them. Why are they still in business? They have an 'f' rating with the bbb, several pages of complaint sites on the internet, yet they get away with ripping off people every day???
My lease was up at the end of december, 2009. I get constant phone calls saying I still owe the money because I was still in "possesion" of the credit card machine. I sent back the machine... Now I am getting phone calls still... Saying I owe them even more money. It started out at around $150.00... Today's phone call... I owe them $205.00.
I have asked them to quit calling. They do not. I tried talking with one of their employees, explaning to them that our lease has ended. I said "no wonder your company has a rating of an' f' with the bbb. He told me this:"your credit rating is going to be an "f' here in a minute.
This company and it's employees have got to go.
I had a short lease of credit card machines from these folks in 2000. they misrepresented their fees, and...
I received an ACH Bank Draft from my Business checking account on February 2, 2017 for $400.81. I called my bank for details then called LFG. I was told by LFG that charge was for a terminated Contract for credit card equipment in 1998. I don't even remember doing business with LFG. We bought our own Credit Card equipment back in the 90's.
Their rep said they have a contract that gave them the right to withdraw funds, but to this date can't produce it. I demanded they return the money and was told that wasn't going to happen.
My bank says they can't do anything for me. I am in the process of filing a complaint with the States Attorney. When I told the States Attorney who debited my account without authorization, they were already familiar with LFG.
After reading all of these posts, I am convinced that I need to close my bank account in order to prevent any future debits.

this company took $4500 out of my account for a lease of a credit card machine. i didn't even know i was doing bussiness with this company. the representative of the credit card company omitted to tell me. the credit card company "summit merchant solutions" refuse any connection with lease finance group but of course they do bussiness with them and their sale reps sell lease finance group products too. they are in the scam together. and they are very very predatory. do not- for any reason- do not do any bussiness with these companies
My cafe was closed temporarily in october and I have not worked since october 1st, 2009. I know I made an agreement with the leasing company to withdraw their money from my bank account. But since october I have not put any money into the account and after numerous times emailing the company to stop all transactions they continue to try to receive money from an account that has no money in it. They need to stop all withdrawals so that I can close the account. I will be getting another account in another bank but not bank of america. And because of them debiting my account the bank is charging me a fee which is not right. So as of wednesday february24, I will expect to see no more transactions being made by lease financing group. Whatever amount I owe them I will pay them when I get my funds. Hopefully my cafe will be open very soon again and would like to continue with my equipment lease. I will let you know when I reopen. Okay? So please stop debiting from my acct.
I am the owner of a computer repair shop in Veneta, Oregon. A little over a month ago, a representative of this company came into my office and promised me a positive experience with this company in helping me to process credit cards in my shop. Since that time, I have had nothing but headaches, and unanswered questions. I was told that I would only be charged around $50 per month, and I would be told ahead of time, what date I would be charged, so that I knew to have the funds available. That failed to happen. I was hit with charges right away into my account, resulting in several overdraft and insufficient funds fees. I made only one transaction into the account, using the machine, which funds I never got to use, because it was never available because of all the charges made by the processor, and all the subsequent over draft fee’s that were generated as a result of
these charges. Then the account continued to be hit by further charges that were unexplained to me. The representative refunded me $100 in cash out of his pocket to offset this issue, but that did not even come close to reversing the large negative balance, nor put it into the positive close to $200 where it should have been. I have called and left messages with this guy, and most of the other companies involved with this company that I no longer wish to try to work with any of these institutions in order to process credit cards. As of
yet, no one has returned any of my calls. I want this policy canceled and I feel that they have breached the contract, not me. On top of everything else, our account was just hit again today for the ridiculous amount of $667.15, putting us into the negative -$404, before further overdraft charges and insufficient funds fees! This
is after receiving a letter that they are going to charge me $769.25 with absolutely no explanation as to why I am being charged! So far i have gotten bills from 4 different companies associated with this stupid credit card machine! What the [censored] Lease Finance Group LLC, First American Payment Systems, Woodforest National Bank, & Merchants Choice Payment Solutions! I keep seeing things in the paperwork that also says Transtech, plus the rep had his own company name that i cant even remember now. We have gone to our Bank, and challenged all of the charges and instructed them not to allow any more charges to go through. Please tell me how to return the equipment and end this nightmare. If someone does not make this right, I am going to contact the Better Business Bureau, and any other authoritative agencies that I can find, as well as take legal action.
Starting a new phone sales business in August 2007, I was approached by a representative of LFG. I leased a credit card payment machine from this company. After 2 months, the machine broke. I repeatedly called and asked for someone to come and repair the machine, but no one ever came. After another 2 months, I lost my business due to no one being able to make payments at my store. I refused to make another payment on my lease since it was their broken machine that caused me to lose my business. They got a hold of my credit card number from a previous transaction and began to charge the lease payments on it. I cancelled the card, and since then, I have repeatedly been harassed by LFG. They call and call and send threatening letters. I have now received a letter stating that I have been summoned to appear in the Civil Court of the CIty of New York. If I do not appear, I will lose my property and my wages will be garnished.
I have the Summons and the letters stating this information, but do not have a scanner to scan them in and attach at the moment.
Is this legal? Can they do this to me? Please help. This has been extremely stressful and now scary to think I may lose my property after losing my business.
