Complaint / review text:
I opened an account with PNC merchant services. The rep they sent out talked me into renting equiptment from first data global leasing. He told me it was a better deal because if the equiptment breaks they will replace it. I was told the contract was 39.99 for 2 years. I could have bought it for 300.00 i found out later at staples.
Well when i called to return the equiptment they said the lease was for 48 months! The rep filled in 48 months after i signed the contract! The rep for pnc merchant services and PNC and the leasing company all make money off the deal. Never rent merchant services terminals, its a scam. I will end up paying 2000.00 for a machine i could have bought for 300.00 for years ago, now the same old machine costs 150.00.
First data global leasing reps are rude. I was told by supervisor if i didnt like it to go get a lawyer. They are a big rip-off. Any bank that operates this way is also a rip-off. I closed my account at pnc. They were funding 300,000.00 worth of credit cards for me a year. They are the only ones more stupid than I was to deal with first data global leasing, and they will loose more money too, because I opened my new account at Wachovia. My new merchant services provider gave me a better deal than PNC also... Paybacks are a b huh PNC?
