Bishop Consolidated hires employees for appointment setters. They give nonlegitiment contracts and have no professional contact information.
They hire work at home appointments setters as well i was one of them.
After my second week i got leary of the company and i wanted to find out about how i was getting paid. Cash, check, deposit? I sent several emails beside all the disconected numbers and filled up voicemail numbers they had. And i received no response. The only contact number I had was the trainer that trained me for an hour on a confrence call. After doing my own research i called an client that i set an appointment for to find out whats going on with this co. Finally I got a call back from the owner that I hadnt talked to at all . He cursed me for calling the client and hungup on me. They are scammers beware of there ads in employment guides. Look them up on [answers.buisness.com ]
UBC promotes that they give a $50 referral payment when you send them a client. My wife and I had been with them for over 3 years. We sent them 3 new clients just over a year ago. I had to call and call and call for 13 months. I was told that our 3 $50 awards had been submitted. After being stoked by Glenn Gill for 7 months I finally got to spek to Phil Crofton after leaving him several messages over a 4 month period. He tells me that I had been told a long time ago that we weren't getting the $150 as promised. I told him that we were never told that but the oposite. His final words were "these accounts are not worth it for us to pay out on" and then hung up. We have since cancelled our account and have moved on.
Please also note that every time we call UBC there is a 10 to 20 hold. Upper managedment is very rude and do not treat their loyal customers with any kind of respect. UBC is not worth doing business with.
I signed up for UBC's credit card processing almost 3 years ago. I was selling jewelry at festivals that were often in places I couldn't use a terminal, and needed a way to process credit cards by cell phone. This was the only company I could find at the time who offered that service.
The salesman I spoke with assured me there would be no 'membership fees', that I could cancel the contract any time without penalty, and it would only cost me $8 per month, plus $3.95 optional fee for supplies. Oh, how I wish I had just bought a better cell phone with a web browser and used PayPal to process those transactions!
Two or three times a year for over two years they have snatched various amounts out of my checking account that I did not agree to. They caused my account to become overdrawn, then closed. Once the bank account was closed, I got threats of 'debt collection' and penalties for early termination of the contract so, like an idiot I gave them my new bank info. A couple of weeks ago they took another $87 and I can't reach anyone to try to get my $ back. I am contacting the Attorney General's Office in New Jersey.
If you are looking for a credit card processing company, use a blackberry and process on PayPal, it's less trouble and much cheaper.

Re: Unauthorized charges to our account. It came to my attention early in November 2007 that United Bank Card had withdrawn $25.00 on October 9, 2007 from our commercial account. There was no supporting documents in our October statement from you regarding this charge. I called United Bank Card customer service at [protected] regarding this charge and was shuffled around between departments until finally I got a rep named â��Fannyâ�� who after 20 minutes came up with an explanation that a fee debit had been refused by my bank. My bank had no record of a refusal and there was no cause as there was tens of thousands of dollars in the account. I have repeatedly asked United Bank Card for documentary evidence of a refused transaction and they have never been forthcoming. There is no transaction on their UBC statements either to match the money they took from the account on October 9, 2007. UBC refused to put the money back in my account in spite of the fact that they didn't even show the debit from our bank account on their own statement. As of that date November 9, 2007 my company quit processing credit cards with United Bank Card due to poor security or possible fraud on their part and no customer services of any kind. Today a collection agency called my office seeking $2375 in alleged debt. They have NEVER ONCE communicated with us regarding these matters nor sent any bill or requests. I am seeking a refund of any fees or charges taken from our accounts since October 9, 2007. I want reimbursement of costs associated with closing accounts and establishing new ones. I want the costs of buying terminals from UBC reimbursed - $800.00. I want any business agreements abandoned and terminated without any fee. I want the collections stopped immediately.
This company was contracted to process our credit cards. They charged us more than the stated rate and sold us $800.00 worth of terminals. After a few months they started charging the account with undocumented charges.
When asked to document they refused. They continued taking money out of the account even after being notified in writing that they were no longer authorized to do so. We had charges showing up as withdrawals on our bank statements but no documentation in their statements. We demanded documentation and it never came. We had to close our commercial account to keep them out of our accounts. We thought we finally got rid of the scam artists when my company gets a call from the collection agency they hired to threaten us with "asset recovery". These guys are committing outright fraud and it is apparently nationwide.
I have been with United Bank Card for 3 years. 5 months ago, I was able to close my account. Over the last 3.5 years, they have charged my account hundreds if not thousands of dollars in services they never provided (like processing equipment). I would have to call them up and demand a refund.
But since I closed my account nearly 1/2 a year ago, they still are charging my account! The BBB is demanding them refund my money, but United Bank Card doesn't refund my money, AND charges me more fees every month!.. The worst part is their customer service told me they are aware of this problem, and this is happening to every account that has been closed this last 1/2 year...
